It clearly states anything over 1.37 is wide. Did you miss that? Or did you miss the fact that 1.33 is a tiny bit below 1.37?
Here's the end result.
Yep, there's no stetched image on a wide screen 1024 * 768 image. It takes a real 16:9 format (1280*720) and downscales
it, so that it fills the screen, made up of rectangular pixels. There are 2 reasons this works well.
1. Plasma is pleasant overall to begin with.
2. Downsizing causes fewer artifacts than upsizing. Anyone who uses Photoshop can vouch for that. Is there a loss of resolution? Of course. Is it pleasant? Yes, Are you happy with it? Yes. Is it a manufactured result? Very much so.
Here the emotional responses go on for 17 pages. There's no reason to believe this site would prove more logical. And the results show exactly that, from plain denial to the typical ad hominem attacks. It's easy to tell a lot of remarks here are driven by emotion, if one truly didn't care about any of this they would not post at all, as opposed to posting "I don't care," which frankly is simply irony.
In regards to doublemazaa's image yep, that's the gimmick. What's missing from this picture is that while a circle will still appear as a circle it will have far worse jagged edges than a 1280 * 720 screen which isn't playing this game.
