hi guys, new to avsforum
i'm from europe, and in europe hdtv is years away, here cable is the standard (SD picture) and cable television is mostly in 4:3, and i watch more cable then dvd's,
so i was looking online for information about the samsung slimfit one day (which is on sale in my country (WS-32Z308, simmilar to your TX-R3079WH) when i stumbled across an article (lot's of them) that said samsung's gonna start selling 68cm (66cm real screen size, 26inch in america?,) 16:9 slimfit in autumn, and 72cm (68 cm real screen size, 27-inch in america?) 4:3 version by the end of the year (December)
here's what it says
"In the third quarter, Samsung will ship a 26W-inch SlimFit unit, followed by a 27-inch 4:3 version in the fourth quarter"
and because i watch more cable than dvd's and hdtv is nowhere to be seen in europe, i don't need a16:9 tv, so 4:3 Samsung Slimfit is exactly what i need
i know 16:9 slimfit has geometry issues, but do you agree that 4:3 tv's usually don't have any or should i say less, mainly beacuse you don't have to strech 4:3 signal in 16:9
i'm buying 4:3 slimfit when it arrives and i think 4:3 won't have geometry issues?
What do you think?
