all 1080p tvs have the same amount of pixels by definition given that 1080p tvs sold are in 16x9 format. 1080 x 1920 = 2073600 pixels. the smaller the tv the denser the pixels.

Dot pitch of a plasma is much much less than an lcd. I dont remember the numbers I posted a while back about this. Though that is the reason that a plasma has a much softer picture and isnt as good for gaming and PC application.

When I first got interested in HDTV 6 years ago I found the primers offered by places like CNET and Howstuffworks quite useful to learn the basics.

I don't think you're getting it, simple mathematics mate:

1920 x 1080 = 2,073,600 pixels total.

So the smaller the 1080P screen, the smaller the pixels, and NO they cannot be more tightly packed within a given screen size.

You ought to be researching other criteria, so leave the magnifying glass at home

The smaller the screen, the higher the pixel per inch (ppi) if that is what you are asking, given same 1080 resolution

As others have said the answer is the smallest true 1080P TV you can find - but why the question? What size TV makes sense and what you can resolve is dependent on how close you sit to the TV - see this for a viewing distance calculator which shows 'Viewing Distances Based on Visual Acuity' http://myhometheater.homestead.com/v...alculator.html

Care to explain this? Not sure how dot pitch is relevant here?

Well yes there are huge commercial displays that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars and require special video to run. Such displays have a lot of pixels. But somehow I doubt this was what the original poster was talking about.

probably a 32" unless there are smaller 1080p TVs (not monitors)

 HERE it is (458 pixels per inch). Not sure if it's LED, but it probably is.

But not probably the most pixels per inch compared to a small 1080P display.......

But again I am not sure why the original question?

Well.... If you consider the iPhone 4 a "TV" I think it's around 350 ppi.

It would be amazing if they made large panels with pixels that small...wow.
