It probably physically has 1080 pixels from top to bottom, but may only be able to handle incoming signals up to 720? Meaning, maybe the PROCESSORS are 720, but the screen has 1080 pixels to use. It is like coloring in a big solid square one color but using a fine-point marker/pencil/etc. to fill it in precisely to the edges. Maybe a poor analogy; sorry. Or you could say that the image is one large block but instead of filling that block with one large box, you fill it with a number of smaller boxes.

Sitting on my porch, ill-advisedly operating my netbook computer in the dank misty air...

Hope this helps!

I just got this in today using site to store shipping. I saw at the store that on the outside of the box it was a "1366x768" screen which is not what this item specified online (originally was 1920x1080 now is 1920x720 as of 11-4-10). Seikiworld.com has the specs wrong on both the item listing and user manual for this item. The black level on this screen looks washed out and the colors are awful. This is a poor quality 720 screen, not a 1080. Hope this helps to clear up confusion. I'll be returning my screen tomorrow.

Basically, 1080 is the number of pixels from the top of the screen to the bottom. 1080p and 1080i differ only in the way they are displayed. The "p" = progressive scan and the "i" means interlaced. The short explanation is interlaced shows half of the image on each frame (32 per second?); it alternates to show one half then the other. Progressive scan displays the whole image every frame. For most this happens far too quickly to even perceive. Therefore, the benefit of progressive scan is that it smooths out the picture (esp. with fast movement, like in a sports broadcast) and lessens eye fatigue. Also, bear in mind that many new source devices (blu-ray players for example) display in 1080p and may not be compatible.

As for 720p...it is overall pretty nice: cheaper prices, prog scan, etc. However, bear in mind that the benefit of 1080 is not nearly as appreciable for TVs less than 32" I'd say (36" is debatable).

In the end, just ask yourself very simply, "Does this look good to me?" when speaking of picture quality only (please read on below though...).

I have a beast (174 lbs.) of an HD TV, one of the earliest to offer HD, and it has ONE component HD input for 1080i. It looks great, and I can't tell the difference vs. 1080p.

This is what to bear in mind: compatibility. When you've narrowed down your search for the right TV, then compare to see which has the widest variety of inputs; having only HDMI is great for connecting all the latest products, but they won't help you connect your old VCR or DVD player. You want something with I'd say at lest one of each of the following inputs: AV (RCA + COMPOSITE and/or S-VIDEO), ANTENNA (old school stuff), COMPONENT, HDMI, VGA (for computers), DIGITAL COAXIAL OR OPTICAL (Note: when there's an option, I can tell you I've never heard a bit of difference between Dig. Coax & Optical). OUTPUTS: it should definitely have both optical/dig coax AND RCA out.

An amazing amount of info, I know! I hope this helps a lot of people.

P.S. CABLES ARE THE BIGGEST UP-SELL IN ELECTRONICS! Look around before you purchase one as a single cable can cost you upward of $80! Again, quality amongst different cable brands is imperceptible to many/most. I think Walmart has some reasonably priced cables.

Sure, it will work but your picture will not be HD and will not look very good.As far as I know there isn't a TV out there that works well without cable or satellite.

This is neither. It's a 1366x768 display, meaning that it resamples any sort of input, even VGA.

It cannot display 1920x1080, nor 1280x720 with perfect clarity.

Please see my reviews on other websites by searching my name, lamwart. Don't buy it :)
