    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.

    42" plasmas still have rectangle pixels as the have a square 1024x768 resolution yet are physically widescreen.

    Are elongated pixels actually beneficial becuase they reshape anamorphic content without processing or vertical rescalling (i.e. have at least the same number of lines as the content).
