So, does anyone have any LCD vendor projections about having only 1080P panels on the market. It would seem like they might be trying to use the 1080P as a selling advantage on their 40inch down sizes, since it appears that it is would be much harder for Plasma manufacturers to cost effectively, produce similiar size panels. Regardless, if someone is planning on making a long term investment, would it not be prudient to go the future proofing route by getting a 1080P display.
I hesitate to mention this, since the very mention of SED tends to provoke a similar reaction from many people, as the mere hint of something that may even sound like sexual innuendo does from Surgeon Todd on the SCRUBS show.
Regardless, it looks like Toshiba/Canon are planning on introducing SED as a 1080P HD display. To those who have seen the 55inch SED 1080P, demonstrated, what was the farthest viewing distance you observed it from and did you experience any sense of wasted resolution, and if you did, at what viewing distance did you begin to observe that effect?
Finally: Henny Youngman used to tell of a Man who goes to the Doctor. The Doctor asked him what was the matter, and the Man said: "Doctor, it hurts when I do this", to which the Doctor replied: "Don't do that!".
So, perhaps if you are sitting too far away from your 1080P display, "Don't do that". Kathy Bates is designed for a distant perspective, Scarlet Johansen can withstand a closer ogle.
