Broadcasts are either 1920X1080 interlaced or 1280X720 progressive. Most streaming content is now available in 1920X1080p or 1280X720p. One way or the other, your TV, regardless of its resolution, will at some point have to do some scaling. All 42'' 720p PDP's are and always have been 1024X768, including the earlier highly rated Kuros. As far as the SDE is concerned, on the 50'' sets, including those with the higher horizontal rez, it is the larger vertical pixels that are the biggest culprit. Even on those sets, I have found that the effect, at similar distances, can be distracting. I believe this topic is getting redundant. It has been debated on numerous threads on this forum due to its subjectivity. It's plain and simple, if you are not happy with the larger pixels, or sit very close to your set, go with a 1080p.
