With all these new bells and whistles that come with the new TVs, one may inquire as to whether all these new specs really matter. Well, Michael J. Miller from PC Mag put two TVs against each other to find out.

The LG 42LH20, which has a 720p display, and the LG 42LH30, which offers a 1080p display were put to a real world test, in which 64 participants were asked to watch both sets and tell which one they preferred. 59% of users preferred the 1080p set, 25% preferred the 720p set, and 16% said they had no preference.

A fair number of the participants said that they could definitely tell the difference between the two sets. It would seem then, that the 1080p is the better set. In addition, 720p and 1080p sets are pretty close in price, so putting in some extra money for the 1080p set, for most, would probably be worth it.

Great picture in daylight. Have only used LG 42LH30 a few days so far. I’m not a TV freak, so lots of TVs look good to me. When you go in a store, all the pictures look great under ideal conditions. This picture looks sharp and bright in the daytime in a room with many large picture windows, and I haven’t made any adjustments. No problem with viewing LG 42LH30 from an angle.


better off buying 720p if you’re not watching blu-ray or playing 1080p ps3 games, I guess

Awesome study! I think it makes a difference when gaming, my games look much nicer when they are in 1080p instead of 720p.
