is the only one I that says it does 1080i that i can see. Im sure the others can I just must not be looking in the right place.
How much better picture quality does the Dell 2405 have? I am going to be building a new box for my senior project to the Dell 2405 may be an option as well.

Reagan said:Also, Terpfen, I remember reading something on Engadget a couple months back about how 1080p probably wouldn't ever be broadcast (Not ever...just in the forseeable future), just because it would take another overhaul of the distribution equipment. I'd link you if I could find it...it was one of those guest columnist features. Basically, it said networks like to record in 1080p, but then just down-res it to 1080i or 720p due to bandwidth, etc.

uB3rn00b3r said:I am about to order the 2405. When playing games on this monitor, 1080p=1900-1200 correct? Would the other resoultions that equal 1080i 720p look worse since 1900-1200 is the screens native resolution?
Terpfen said:1920x1200 @ 60hz is 1080p. 1920x1200 @ 30hz is 1080i. The difference between progressive scan and interlaced is that with progressive scan, you're seeing the entire image every time it's refreshed on the screen. With interlaced images, you're only seeing every other line on the screen. It makes for lesser image quality even though you're at a higher resolution.
moralpanic said:Are you sure 1920x1200 is 1080p? I have a Sony GDM-FW900 that displays at 1920x1200, and when i watch 1080p content, it doesn't fit the screen perfectly (unless i have it stretched). However, there's a 1920x1080 resolution that does.
