    Which resolution is the best?

    1024 x 1024

    1366 x 768

    or even

    1280 x 768

    Is 1024 x 1024 the same as 1024 x 1024i ?

    1366x768 is 16:9 at high-def and would POTENTIALLY give the best results with a 1:1 pixel-map (providing it was possible with the display).

    1280x768 is ARGUABLY (and there will be some :)) the next best as it offers a 720p picture with minimum scaling.

    1024x1024 is the resolution that ALiS-based screens use. It's not as straightforward due to the way that technology works.

    That's probably not of any use, but there you go :)

    1024x1024 is an ALiS panel and is only 1024x512 but the horizontal lines are doubled making 1024x1024. Not good for Hi Def as you need at least 720 horizontal lines.

    1366x768 is 16:9 and is good for Hi Def. Normally seen on the latest LCDs.

    1280x768 is 15:9 and again is good for Hi Def but the 15:9 panels in LCD terms are an older style panel. If you find an LCD with this, the technology could be 12 months or more old. Don't know about Plasma though.

    That is just not true ! The odd and even pixel rows are scanned sequentially, as in a conventional CRT. Are you saying that we've been watching 312.5 lines on our CRT's all these years ? :rolleyes:

    Hitachis do in fact use all of their lines as described, but the scaling/interpolation is a dark mystery. The internal processing knows no rhyme or reason, you either love it or hate it. Actually when watching TV on your plasma you'd be hard pressed to know which res. you were looking at, other things are at least as important as resolution.
