    1080i native, Card readers, HD streaming, wi-fi, 10/100 Ethernet port, supports DivX, WMV9 etc. DVI & HDMI all for less than 2000 euros, if true I may just have to move my ACER 32" LCD to another room, looks like LCD TV's are going to be like PC's, meaning that we'll have to upgrade every year!

    First impression: That guy must be huge, doesn't look like a 37" panel!
    2nd impression: Surely the panel would be 1920x1080 Progressive native not interlaced?

    1st thought: Is the information accurate?
    2nd thought: Will acer be able to make a decent de-interlacer for this panel if it IS progressive (as i suspect it would be?), otherwise 1080i input will look awful, hi-def or not!

    LCD displays are progressive by nature. When the Acer 37" shows a 1080i it will be displayed in 1080p, but only once it has been deinterlaced by it's deinterlacer. What they mean to say is that this new model can accept a 1080i image through it's inputs, but can't accept a 1080p image - which very few displays can do anyway.

    Sounds interesting to me, if I can perform well for around £1300 then it could be worth considering.

    I agree if it performs for £1300 it would be well worth considering, but the amount of processing required to motion adaptively de-interlace 1080i to 1080p is surely huge! The only thing that might swing it for me is that i only really watch movies, which are easy to de-interlace :)
