    Hi,

    i tried the search, but didn't find an answer to my question yet, and as i
    haven't yet been able to get an answer from sony or my shop, i will try
    my luck here.

    I'm planning to buy a 52"LCD and im focusing on the Sony KDL52W4500 or
    the Sony KDL52W4730 (which as i understand are the same). The main
    arguments for this set are the very positive test results / user comments
    and the DVB-C tuner.

    But, one of my main requirements is using the LCD as a display for my
    laptop (acer aspire 6930), which has a hdmi 1080p output.

    The question is, wether the Sony will allow me to extend or duplicate
    my computer desktop in full HD, using the panels native resolution ?
    The user guide says it won't: ... List of all possible resolutions ... HDMI ... pc-mode ... -> maximum will be 1280x1024.

    Now, i do not understand, how the lcd differs between a hdmi input from
    e.g. a ps3 or a blue ray player or the input from a computer, but at the moment i have to believe the user guide.

    The alternative choice, the 52LG7000, does refer positively to full hd usage in combination with a computer.

    I hope, that someone reading this will be able to help me with this question....


    Thanks in advance and greetings from Germany...

    Rene

    I'm fairly sure that the resolution quoted for the PC input is when connecting via the VGA input on the TV. if you connect the PC via HDMI then you will be able to use the full resolution.
