Would the brand of an HDTV affect the picture quality?


For example: I have an LCD High Definition TV by LG...would the picture look better on an LCD High Def TV by lets say, Samsung?
I appreciate all answers, and I WILL choose a BEST ANSWER.
Would LG be considered a good brand?

I wouldn't be able to really choose which is better by looking at all of them in the shop. Not all of them receive HD signals, so some of the Tvs look like standard tvs...

I won't be able to figure a difference if some are in HD and some are in standard.
Also, how would the quality change if they both have the same amount of pixels?

If the tvs have the same amount of pixels but are different brands, shouldn't they still have a clear, sharp display?

Hi, I have been researching on HDTV over the year. Seriously speaking, Sony and Panasonic are always in the top league of the LCD tvs. Any of their models can win any brands of LCD easily. However, things seems to have changed, Samsung seems to have break through on its new R74BD series as it squeezes into the Top 3 of the LCD brands in "What Video". "What Video", a HDTV magazine with over 25 years of tv reviewing history, with its own lab and its unique equipment, they test the TRUE specification of almost every models of HDTV there's in the market. Since u only asks about LCDs in your question, I will suppose that u understands their differences and will only talk about LCD tv here. =)

First I would like to highlight that, never believe in the stats that the brands claimed except for the resolution. Gradution[Grey Scaling, or also called black levels], contrast ratio and brightness of the tv, are always boast by the brands. When tested in "What Video" a Panasonic plasma with 3000:1 claimed contrast ratio seems to have much better ratio than a Samsung plasma with 10,000:1 claimed contrast ratio. Trust me, only look at the brands and resolution when looking for a HDTV. =)

Secondly, never listen to what a saleman recommend, they only recommend those tvs with higher comission for them to u.

Lastly I would say that different brands surpass others in different way. Panasonic, a brand that ALWAYS produce tvs with AMAZING black levels, easily surpass ALL brands of tv in the black level aspect. Motion artefact is definitely not a problem to Panasonic too, they handle that very well. However, Panasonic Tvs still slightly losses to Sony's when compare to sharpness. But it's up to u that whether u decide to have a sharper image with some motion artefacts, or one with almost no motion artefact but with a slightly inferior in its sharpness. Oh and btw, Panasonic's color is slightly better/more natural than Sony's too. To make it short, NEVER buy any LCD tvs besides Sony, Panasonic, Loewe, Toshiba* and Samsung*. Their tests result are the best among so many brands.

*only their new models are good-Toshiba WLT66 and Samsung R74BD series.

Oh and keep in mind if u want totally future proof your tv, look for 1920x1080 resolution which supports up to 1080p. There isn't much tvs with 1920x1080 resolution which supports up to 1080p in the market yet. So here's some recommendation from me(but they are not 1080p compatible). =)

Toshiba WLT66 - Take this if u prefer its price n design, its a decent one with a resolution of 1920x1080, it doesn't support 1080p though. Strange huh. Not recomended if u still watching SD signals.

Any Sony's Bravia Series-They are consider "Godly" in the LCD league. I heard that's one that supports 1080p is out recently. But its review is not out yet, can't tell u how good it is now. =)

Panasonic LXD50/60-It has a built-in recorder if I remember correctly. Panasonic's black levels are always unbeatable. Its motion is almost perfect without any noise too.

Samsung R74BD-Its a decent LCD tv, it might not be as good as Panasonic and Sony, but it definitely wins them in its price! It's VERY cheap considering this is a good LCD tv. Check out its price in your country. =)

Edit after tm_mcdnnll has posted below:

What tm_mcdnnll said "Never having anything to do with the manufacturing" is definitely not true. Why is it only LG's LCD has the XD Engine? Why is it Panasonic is the only one having Viera Color Management? Why only some brands has the Ambient Light Control? Why is it Philips the only one that has the Pixal Plus Technology? Those above are only part of the examples. HOW one brand makes a LCD is very important. Although we didn't know HOW they make it, but still the fact that different brands produced different "quality" of LCDs using same chipsets from the same company is definitely true. Therefore brand is really very important. Get a copy of "What Video" if u wish to know more. =)

How can I improve picture quality from laptop to hdtv?

I can connect my laptop to my hdtv via hdmi cable and everything works great except the quality of the images on my tv is nowhere near the quality of my laptop. I've adjusted the settings on my tv to try to get better quality but to no avail. The images on the tv have too much contrast are overly color saturated. My laptop is the HP Pavillion with a 17 inch monitor and graphics cards set to 1440x900. I have a Hitachi 42 in. plasma tv. Anyone know how I should adjust my settings for higher image quality on my TV when showing images from my laptop? Thanks!

Your TV picture is limited to the output of the video card. The 1400x900 may look good on the laptop, but the pixels are going to be artificially enlarged on the tv. You will need a much larger pixel aspect ratio to have it look real good
