This set does 1080 over component and HDMI, it also does 1920x1080 (1080p) over VGA.
The snag with the 360 is this ..
"IF YOU USE VGA" ... the 360 will output new games, old games, HD-DVD, and upscale your current DVD's so EVERYTHING IS 1080p ..............
"IF YOU USE COMPONENT" .. the 360 will output new games, old games at 1080p. It will output HD-DVD at 1080i and WILL NOT upscale your DVD's. This is not the TV nor the 360's fault, these are restrictions put in place by the content copyright folks.
So do yourself a favour .... invest in the small price of the VGA cable and go that way. At one point the VGA PQ use to look kind of flat and washed out, but only about a week after the 360's 1080p update they put out another small update that now makes the VGA look just as good as component. From experience (I have both cables) I find the VGA looks a sharper and more detailed as well when compared to component.
If your still on the fence, look at it his way ... and upscalling DVD player that will upscale your DVD's to 1080i will run at least $100 for a decent player. The VGA cable is less than half of that and you will not have an upscalling DVD player that outputs at 1080p .......... kind of a no brainer really for any XBOX 360 owner.
so buy these cables so you can use 1080p. unless you have your pc hooked up to your tv.
Even if you want to to both your 360 and PC, buy a VGA switch / splitter box .. very cheap. Then you just switch between both.http://www.frontierpc.com/ProductDet...ctID=950018660
