Hell, the resolution may not have anything to do with why I didn't think they looked as good, but I do know that they certainly did not look as good.
There are threads on this forum that discuss the reasoning behind it. I don't find your reply's argumentative but your understanding of some of the technical aspects of these TV's is somewhat elementary. Did you see the C-Net chart? http://reviews.cnet.com/hdtv-resolut...oreResources.1
The point I've been trying to make is that it's very hard to judge a set on display in a retail store for the reasons I posted earlier. I have seen some very good 720p sets by Samsung, LG and Panasonic that probably offer better black level performance, gray scaling and color accuracy then your
Phillips and personally I've never seen any of them, even close up with a screen door effect. If your budget allows you to trade up to a higher end set, then by all means go for it. Hopefully when you get it home and set up, you will be happy with it. Enough said on my part. Cheers!
