I see much discussion on 1080P and the real difference versus a 768 display and for those that think that a native 1080P display makes no difference I would issue a challenge to see it real life in a very simple smack in front of your face viewing experience with an SXRD 60" displaying from a Sony HD Box "Hawaii". My point is not to sell anyone on SXRD or any better than scenario but to point out just how much better 1080P or i can be on a native display, even the version that doesn't take 1080P.
Simply go to a Circuit City anywhere in the country where they have this setup and cpcat may have mentioned 5'? That's a joke - you can put your eyeballs up to the panel and not see pixels on that feed yet your cannot say that for any other panels in the store except perhaps the new 1080P Samsungs being fed likewise.
My Sharp is a native 1080 display that doesn't take the progressive but hell at 1:1 pixels I can get within less than a foot before seeing any pixeling and that is not being fed via a 1080P Box - and viewing CSI Miami I cannot see any from within inches.
My point is not a better than scenario or tech but that the fill factor on a large panel is just amazing on 1080P Native Displays and when you folks see it on the new Panasonic 65" and the Pio 60" you'll be blown away comparatively just as a 60" SXRD or a 70" Q006 blows away a 3LCD panel and most other technology, add to that the HP, JVC Pro 1080P, the Brillian and now plasma will join. The BONUS is getting a larger panel for HT immersion with kick ass clarity and details a step above.
For those naysayers on 1080P and it's difference I'll be back after Rich Harkness has done his review of both the Pio/Panasonic after he has jaw surgery when he reports the blow you away fill factor with next to no visible pixels (you can bet they'll have a Blu-Ray feeding it). Go see the SXRD or half a dozen other native displays being fed HD and there is a difference and my point is not to be argumentative but rather despite PDP owners not having 1080P previous the fill factor will make a big difference just as it does with LCD and RPTV and FP. Eventually they'll all migrate to 1080P and a price premium is always there for early adopters. Enjoy!
