Should elongated pixels (wider than they are tall) actually be considered advantageous and to give higher vertical resolution? A recent review of a Hitachi LCD heaped praise generally and specifically mentioned the higher than usual vertical resolution as a benefit. I guess it reshapes anamorphic content without the need for any processing and more and more content is anamorphic these days. ORIGINAL POSTING: Are there still panels being produced with elongated pixels? I'll be careful enough to check my first flat panel is exactly 720 or 1080* lines but surely nobody is still making panels with elongated pixels are they? *The number of times magazines get this wrong is amazing.
