Greg M asked in Consumer ElectronicsTVs · 1 decade ago

I'm thinking of buying a 58" inch plasma (the Panasonic TH-58PH10UKA). Will 720p resolution be enough?

I will be viewing the screen from about 10 feet away in my room. I'm wondering if 720p will be just fine or if I should go with 1080p instead? Will Blue Ray look ok on 720p?

    this is a big tv. and you are only sitting 10' feet want the best resolution you can get. if it was me for a 58" i wouldnt even think of 720p its 1080p all the way. and 10' is alittle close for a 58". the rule of thumb is about 3 times the size of the screen is the ideal distance. so thats about 14-15' . even then i would def. go 1080p. but your sitting closer then 1080p no secend guess. good luck. oh and excellent choice in tv brand. my fav. good luck again.

    At 720p, your blue ray player will be providing more resolution than your plasma can display.

    Broadcast/cable HD signals are at 720p. If you are big dvd movie person you might want to go for the 1080p.
