Can someone help me?

thanks

The Westinghouse 1080p monitors do. Component 1080p is not listed in the specs, but users report that it works.

The Sharp LC-37D90u and its arguably nicer cousins, the Mitsubishi LT-37131 and LT-37132, all support 1080p over HDMI, DVI and Component. I do not know about the Sharp's D62u series, but I bet they do. I am convinced the LT-46131 and LT-46231 share the same components as their 37" brothers, so it probably does as well.

"Samsung LNS-XX95 and 96 support 1080p over component"



I am not seing where these support 1080p over HDMI.

My old tv only supports up to 1080i over HDMI and I do not want to make a mistake and get one that only does this..

Can anyone tell me how to confirm 1080p on the HDMI on the LNS'?


The specs are not showing on their webpage.

Also what about the Sharp..LC40 and 46D62U;s?

Do they support 1080p on both HDMI and component?


The contrast ratio is worrying me on these.

the native is that is... I know is has some sort of dynamic stuff but I have no clue what that means and they don't take time to explain it.


Has anyone used these models on an XBoX360 and playstation 3?

As I said that low ratio worries me. 2000:1

when most are 6000:1 or above...

Advertised contrast ratios are meaningless. Reviewers who actually test the contrast find values in the low to mid hundreds.

They are 2 different measurements. The 6000:1 figure is a "dynamic" contrast ratio. The 2000:1 is a "static" contrast ratio. Divide the "dynamic" number by 5 to get the equivilant "static" figure.


So, in this case, the 2000:1 static number is actually higher (and better) than the 6000:1 dynamic number. It would be nice if all manufacturers used the same measurements for contrast ratio but unfortunately they don't.

Well.. he's a dufus.


The D62 Series, as well as the new D92 and D82 series, support full 1080p over component, HDMI AND DVI-I


This is not a guess.. it's a fact.


Oh, and all these claims of 10,000:1, 15,000:1 ect.. are dynamic.


AFAIK, nobody markets an LCD with 6000:1 NATIVE contrast


You have to look at "NATIVE"


Ex: Sharp D62 - 2000:1 contrast.. pretty good.

SharpD92 - 3000:1 whoa mamma!
