    How long is going to be until we get 42/43 inch screens with a native resolution of 1280x720?
    It seems there are a lot of 50 inchers with this rez, but none 42/43?
    Do you think it's big issue, if you want to watch HD, or is it splitting hairs?

    Thanks,
    VF

    There are only DLP rear pro screens in this size/res . There is little or no incentive to produce a plasma in 1280/720, as a huge majority of the buyers neither know nor care. The economics of plasma glass production make it totally impossible for some niche british manufacturer to start producing for the enthusiast market, the cost would be totally mind boggling. That rules out plasma then, we wait for the next technology. If you know what that will be, can you let the rest of us know please! There are some smaller LCD panels I suppose, Samsung make a 22", but no big stuff. The quality you can get with a 1366/768 50" or a XGA 42" is pretty damn good, especially with a video scaler in the loop, it may be a non issue TBH.

    We'll see, it could well be. Not heard any more from Motorola on nanotechnology displays have we? About a year ago they had a story that they'd have production displays by Q3 2005. Must hae been an april fool, like about 90% of this kind of thing

    that is probably right.... However we do have 50" plasmas with 1280 x 768.... perhaps this may answer the initial question. It is not 1280 x 720 but it is better that the 42" having 1024 by 768..... Pioneer definitely is in that category...
