  • Off topic TV stuffs.

    So i've been rocking this ****************ty sony tv for like 20 years...they are bricks man and the picture was pretty decent.....I loved it to death but today i knocked it over and it exploded literally lol. Well, i had to get a temp replacement tv...this is what i ended up with (paid 129, it's for our bedroom, it's really close to the bed so it doesn't need to be giant)...http://www.google.com/products/catalog?hl=en&rlz=1C1CHFX_enUS456US456&gs_upl=1222 1l12356l1l12614l2l0l2l0l0l0l0l0ll2l0&bav=on.2,or.r _gc.r_pw.,cf.osb&biw=1366&bih=667&q=19+inch+sansui +lcd&um=1&ie=UTF-8&tbm=shop&cid=17236937468086597312&sa=X&ei=rpcKT6 b0A4SgtweWtZSUBw&ved=0CGoQ8wIwAQ

    It says everywhere on the box it's hdtv...And there's an hdmi plug, but i saw a few websites saying this isn't hdtv. If there's an HDMI it's HDTV right?

    Question 2: I actually like this little tv, was planning on returning in 2 weeks to get this http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16889234048
    But idk...What does HCTV'S think?
    yep

    HDMI can transmit any uncompressed video data. That doesn't at all mean that either the data or the receiver is high definition.

        I'm not sure about those TVs at all. The link you provided does say 720p, so I'm confused as to how sources are saying it isn't HDTV. Any links you can provide? This has peaked my curiosity.

        I still rock a TV with a built-in VCR, so I can't really say I'm an expert from a consumer level, but my parents have been buying Vizios like crazy, and I really enjoy them when I stay there. I really thought they were rebrands until I researched and found out they're just great undercutters.

          Oh. Well here's whats throwing me off. It should say in the manual/back of tv the p amount. like 720(most likely) or 1080 but it doesn't. So i figured they had a box/manual they use for 3 similar models one being not hdtv. I guess after what you said im pretty sure it's 720p though...FWIW it's got great picture quality not even hdmi'd.
          yep

                I would recommend hdmi inputs, you never know. Also, LED is the new thing and it saves energy. Vizio is a good, solid, affordable brand. Finally, for the bedroom, I would rock at least a 22"...

                    720p is not considered Full HD, 1080p is. On a 19inch it might be a little harder to notice the difference but you should definitely be able to see the difference if you look at it more closely. You are basically rendering 720 lines of pixels vertically instead of 1080...

                      Basically there are three formats for hi-def. 720P, 1080i and 1080P. Your TV supports the lowest of the three. If you have cable TV, they likely support 720P and 1080i. BluRay players support 1080P and some computers do. I don't think much else does though.

                      We have a 720P set in the guest room and while I don't think the picture quality is quite as good as the 1080i sets, it's still pretty close and way better than standard TV.

                      FWIW, I'm not sure you can even buy anything any more that isn't some form of hi-def.

                      I don't think I'd buy Westinghouse, but if you do, this one is 1080P. The one you linked to is 720.

                        How are you getting signal into the set? You need either HDMI or component connections to deliver hi-def picture. If you're using coax or standard AV cables, you're not seeing hi-def. I kind of doubt you'd even notice on a set that small though.

                          yea im sure its just 720p. why bother buying the little crappier one if youre gonna upgrade in a month though?

                          and the second one looks fine too, im sure it'll work great and the picture quality will be fine. not a samsung though...

                              Oh. And off-topic.

                              I was researching for this thread and saw that Vizio is releasing a line of computers at CES. Might Hackintosh one if the specs are right.
