So after my dad bought a new TV back in March, I later asked him what the native resolution was. He said 720p. T'was kind of a bummer considering I was planning on playing some games in 1080p, but I got over it. It never occured to me until today to check the TV's model number online to see what the resolution actually is. Now when I searched the number, it told me that the number corresponds to a 51'' Plasma TV, Samsung brand, 1080p and 600Hz. My TV is indeed Samsung and 51 inches, but I don't know about the rest.
The problem there is that the specs listed on the back of the TV say that the TV's refresh rate is 60Hz, not 600, and my dad said that it's 720p while Samsung's website says it's 1080p. Of course my dad might just be wrong, but that doesn't change the fact that the TV itself says 60Hz and the website says 600Hz. Another lovely inconsistency is that Samsung's wesbite lists it at anywhere from $700 to $1400 CAD depending on the retailer, but my dad got it for $450. It's actually a really nice TV, and I don't know if it has anything to do with it but when connect an HDMI to my PS3/Xbox360/XBOne it automatically goes to 1080p. Does that mean it's the native resolution, or just that that's the highest resolution?
For anyone willing to help, the model # is PN51D530.
