When doing a little basic maths with the pixel count it seems that a lot of screens are actually 15:9 rather than 16:9. I cannot understand why so many manufacturers seem to be getting away with this. Even some Sony screens are apparently undersized. Often the tv's are advertised as being 16:9 when they are apparently not. It never seemed to be an issue with CRTs, and possibly not with Plasma's. This problem is often referred to in this forum as 'old screens'. Why were they made in the first place? It seems like the public are being a bit short-changed here. In choosing which model to buy I feel I need to eliminate these models straight away. Any thoughts ???
