    I ran across the 3 sharp 1080p lcd tv's where the description contains:
    "View Modes: Sidebar, Smart Stretch, Stretch, Zoom, Dot by Dot (for PC)"
    for the Sharp LC-45GD6U, LC-45GD4U, and LC-45GX6U

    The Dot by Dot sounds like it means that it will take a pc resolution of 1920x1080 without scaling in a 1:1 pixel mode fullscreen. However, I read a few reviews online from people who said that the resolution is not 1920x1080 from a pc input.

    Does anybody have one of these lcd's and can verify this is true?

    On a side note, what do you think the plusses and minuses of having a break out box are?

    Hello,

    all the models you mentioned are US models. As far a I know they are not sold in Europe.
    And officially all three don't accept 1080p signal, BUT there is a workaround for the LC-45GX6U.
    More about this workaround you can find here:

    In Europe the LC-45GD1E is sold. An employee of Sharp said at the German IFA fair in Berlin a few days ago, that this workaround should also be possible with the LC-45GD1E to show 1080p signals. But I don't know anybody who has tested that.

    I hope this helps.
