i saw it featured in a micro center catalog for what looked like 2200$(cheaper than their 1366x768 37"). anyone have more info on this model?
At this time the display to which you are referring does not exist. I researched this quite a bit last week and it looks like Syntax is not quite ready to come out with their first 1080p display. It isn't even listed as forthcoming at their company website ( www.syntaxgroups.com
Several retailers are still listing it as 1080p (usually under the name "LT37HV" but occasionally as "LT37HVD," contrasted with the 1366x768 LT37HVE, but those listing are, from the last time I checked, erroneous. Believe me, once Syntax *does* come out with an affordable 1080p display it will be plenty big news on this forum and there will be a huge buzz around it. Their 30" and 32" displays from last year were the industry leaders in their price range (I almost bought one, actually). I have my fears about their ability to do as remarkable a job with 37" 1080p as they did with 30-32" at 720p and 1080i, but they're a *very* aggressive company and they just might come through.
In any case, I think we have some while to wait before a 1080p Olevia surfaces. Right now I'm just anxious to see how the Sceptre and BenQ compete. Westinghouse has made a very strong showing so far this year, so they just might take the lead for budget-oriented displays. We'll see...
