Hi I am looking at purchasing one of the following models, does anyone have any advice on which one to get. I wanted to see if there is a huge noticable difference between the 720p and the 1080p?


Panasonic TH50PX80 720p


or


Panasonic TH50PZ80 1080p

At 50 inches, yes there will be a noticeable difference between 720p and 1080p. Some will debate that at sizes smaller than 42 inches you cannot tell the difference between 720p and 1080p, but at 50 inches there is NO debate.

42" or 50" doesn't make any difference. It's Viewing Distance to the size of screen. A 50" screen at 15 feet away and you might as well watch 480 SD content and you can't tell the difference from 480 to 720 to 1080 on that 50" screen. On a 42" screen to see the FULL Benefits of 1080P you need to be no more then 5 feet from the screen. To see some of the Benefits of 1080P no more then around 6-7 feet, anything more then that is a waste and you might as well look at 720P displays. For a 50" screen, to see the FULL Benefits of 1080P, you need to be about 6 feet in front of the screen, to no more then around 8 feet to see some of the Benefits. I sit just under 7 feet for my 50" screen. After 8 feet you might as well look at a 720P screen. A 60" 1080P screen for example is good for up to 10 feet viewing distance.


I read about those that are sitting 12 feet in front of a 42" screen size. That's just silly, when the screen size should be around 100" for full 1080P Benefit!!! Of course at this size your talking about using a front Projector.


A lot of people are just buying too small a HDTV for their viewing distance. Then they wonder why Blu-Ray really doesn't look any better then DVD for example.
