HD ready means that it is capable of displaying atleast 720P, Full HD means that it will show atleast 1080P. Native Full HD likely means that its native resolution is 1920x1080

They all mean the same thing in respect to either 720p or 1080p depending on what exactly is specified. If it doesn't give you any of that information and just says something about HD, I would assume 720p, but I also wouldn't trust a brand that didn't provide information like that. In what context are you seeing them?

Dont make your choices based on the marketing terms, as they vary a bit between manufacturers. Use the actual numbers not the terms they are labeled with, there may be a 1920x1200 monitor marked as native Full HD, native Full HD is not as common as Full HD is so there is variation in meaning between manufacturers.

In this case it's important to note this part of the page:

Quote:
LG Smart Monitor supports clear and ideal image reproduction with 16:9 wide screen and optimal 1920 x 1080 pixels and Full HD resolution. With HDMI Connector, which is compatible with various digital entertainment devices such as Blu-ray, HD-DVD, PS3, and XBOX 360, LG Smart Monitor can recreate the visual contents of your choice in supreme quality.


16:9 & 1920x1080 is the standard for "Full HD" 1080p resolution, which is the highest "HD" available to the masses via television and other similar content right now. The way high-definition is marketed is a bit convoluted as all it really is is just a higher resolution. TVs these days are exactly like computer monitors -- in that the content detail increases with the resolution supported. 720p is 1280x720 and 1080p is 1920x1080, which is just simplified for whatever reason.
