Does a tv need dot by dot?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
That is the question. I am looking at a Sharp LC40D68UT but it seems to not have dot by dot. It does have "Vyper Drive" which turns off all the image processing things as far as I know.

I will be using a HDMI cable to connect to the tv.

Here are the specs: Video

Convenience Features
Additional features Optical Picture Control (OPC),

Since it doesn't have dot by dot, should I just move on from that tv and keep looking?

If it matters I am running OS X Lion and Win 7 with a 6870.

If it's a Sharp it should have Dot-by-dot mode (mine does). Post in the LCD HDTV forum (there should be a topic for your model, there is for virtually every other one) and I'm sure someone will be able to answer your question.

What will you be using your TV for mainly?

Ok thanks I will. I will mainly be using it for gaming and watching movies, some 3d modeling and some text editing.
