I thought I'd like a display that can handle a 1080i signal (1920x1080) at native resolution. But unsurprisingly I can't afford one of those. So then I thought maybe something that can display 720p (1280x720) at native resolution. But there don't seem to be any, except maybe that new 40" LCD screen, and I can't afford that. So then I thought I'd like something that has square pixels (so I can use it with a PC without messing up the aspect ratio) and has a resolution of at least 1280 horizontal and 720 vertical, so that it can at least display a 720p signal without downscaling. These actually do exist, e.g. 1365x768 50" panels. But I think these are still probably still a bit out of my price bracket - are there any such screens that sell for less than £6000? So then I thought, how about something that can display a PAL progressive signal at native resolution? Nope. Or something that is >= 1024x576 with square pixels? Nope, unless we go back to the £6K 50" screens again. So now I'm down to 42" panels, and I have to make a stark choice between something with a 1024x768 resolution whch will look silly with a PC, or going down to 853x480 - but I'm damned if I'm going to spend thousands on a display only to have it downsample the image, I don't care how good the scaler is). Hmph hmph hmph.
