The 26" and 32" won't be 1080p. They'll have 2 versions of the 37", one of those will be 1080p. It won't be cheap. Probably better off just going for a Westinghouse now. The 45" is still gonna retail for over $4k.

See, a 26" or 32" 1080p monitor would be perfect to fill the gap. Right now you either do 1920 x 1200 @ 24" or 1920 x 1080 @ 37"....everything in between is 1280 or 1366. :( Which works fine for a television, but those looking for huge monitors are screwed.

A guy here early last year, posted his pics of his sharp 1920 x 1080 LCD, and it was a 37"

I remember seeing the post on the "show your LCD setup" sticky thread. I looked up the price and it was around 4500 - 5000 dollars for the Sharp 37" 1080P ... this was summer of 05 or spring pehaps.

They've had a 1080P model for sometime, just .. very expensive and cutting edge.

UPDATE: Try page 22 of that thread. Several pics of his Shap 1080P 37" LCD. From March 2005.

I looked on page 22 and he says it's a 45".

Sharp had a 45" 1080p model that didn't actually accept 1080p sources for 2005 that was pretty damn expensive. For 2006, most manufacturers are re-designing their 1080p TVs or bringing out new ones which do take 1080p sources which make them a hell of a lot more useful. Only budget manufacturers had 37" 1080p TVs in 2005.

Ok, thanks for the correction.

I have honestly had in my head all this time that that was a 37" LCD.

Regardless, very expensive.

I've owned the 2005 and the 2405, I even have the cash for the 30" Dell, but, for what you get vs cost, personally, for me at least anyways, the 37" Westy @ 1920 x 1080 was the best choice.

1 ) The 1920 x 1080 native rez wouldn't kill my frame rate in current and future games.

2 ) Future proof as far as a television went with it's 1080P support.

3 ) Large enough to be retired as a bedroom TV, even living room.

4 ) Cost. With the savings, you can turn around and also purchase motherboard and cpu.

The westinghouse 56" LCD can do 3840x2160 LCD display, what would be the advantage of that vs. the Sharp?

I am looking further into the 65" manual (downloadable). If you connect your PC, it seems to support a res. of 12x10. But the max. res. of this LCd is 19 x 10. So does that mean that there is a different res. support by PC, in this case, a lower res. than the max. supported, i.e., 19 x 10?

Price... didn't Westinghouse say the 56" 2160p LCD would be around $20,000. source With that I can buy a new car...

I read in PC World or something that the 45" is going to retail at over 7k
