mine can accept 1080p only at 24hz, but not 1080/30 or 1080/60.

hz in this context is frames per second.  so 1080/24 would be 1920x1080 progressive format in 24 frames per second.  i don't know which players can handle it, but some hd-dvd and i think all blu-ray can output at 1080/24, but some can only do 30hz or 60hz, i guess.  24fps is the film industry standard.  my display is a 72hz display, so 24 works, i guess, because it's a factor of 72.  i don't understand all the intricacies of it all, to be honest.

i guess the 24fps film standard comes into play with 3:2 pulldown modes that some tv's have.  film based material has flags on the proper frames and the 3:2 pulldown smooths out judder.  my set actually has something called 3:3 pulldown which works with the 72hz refresh rate and the 24fps film based material to create a smoother picture somehow.

1080p really isn't a benefit unless you have a screen og 50" or bigger. Right now its good for 2 things, HD-DVD and Blue-ray movies. The PS3 and Xbox360 both do 1080p, but no games use it yet. Won't see it in TV either, not enough bandwidth yet. I got a 50" Samsung 1080p DLP set to future proof myself and because I love HD-DVD movies.

Even with a 50" set you'd have to be within about 6 feet of the TV to be able to see the full benefit of 1080p.  And you wouldn't even start to notice a difference between 1080p and 720p until you get within 8 feet. 

Check that link I posted right above you - it has a cool picture that explains it easily. ;)

I sit about 6 feet away from my 50" set and let me tell you, I can notice the difference between a 720p HD cable movie and a 1080p HD-DVD or bluray

didn't you say you had a samsung?

from everything I've read, if the store gives you the run around, call samsung.  They're supposed to be really good about their warranty.


Because nothing says "I have lots of money and am sort of confused as to how to spend it" like Bose.

I just scored a 55" Sony SXRD 1080p.  Not HDMI cable yet, but even the regular cable channels via coax look great....

Good choice.  If I were buying greater than 50" that is the set I would get.  Did you get the XBR2 or A2000?

Most content I think is 720p these days.  1080p is nice but probably ahead of its time. 
720p is very good looking. 

If you're going to run a PC into your TV, I'd say 1080 is a must because I hate the way they look on 720

I had been looking at the 50" version of this set for a while and about bought it through the sony family store a couple of weeks back (wife works for SE), but didnt act before they pulled it and replaced it with the new version.  Was at best buy this morning, just looking at tv's and they had the 50' SXRD 1080p A2000 for $1399.99.  Sick deal...got it home and just using OTA right now as I ordered another box from DTV for all the other channels and the picture is freaking fantastic...doesnt suffer from off angle like other sets I had looked at...extremely happy and at that price...tough not to be...

the new ones have a black casing, but beyond that appear to be the exact same set as the old ones (which have silver casing)...from what I hear, sony is coming out with a 50" SXRD XBR in the summer though...

Congrats on the new tv!  +T for getting one of the best sets I've seen recently.  Too bad you won't be able to watch the 'Canes in the playoffs this year  :o    JK  ok, so they are in 7th and in a close race.  You can always wat the Wings  ;D

I saw the SXRD XBR2 60" at Sears one day while the wife was shopping at New York & Co.  I wasn't that impressed with the 60" XBR2 when compared to the A2000.  Where was that A2000 deal at BB?  My buddy is looking for a set and that is a STEAL!  I did check out both the Sony and JVC at BB a few weeks ago and really liked the Sony.  I'm not even close to a new tv purchase as I'm really happy with my 720P front projection and the $800 32" Olevia LCD (crap for SD though).  I'll be waiting until we build a home in the next 5-7 yrs to upgrade as long as nothing blows up.  I really want a Pioneer plasma for the living room since the SED tv thing isn't going to work out.  Hopefully the BR/HD-DVD war will have been decided.
