fair enough they're close pixal counts but your dealing with an 8% differance in pixals while i am dealing with an 11% differance in pixals. i just think any time you get in the double digits in percent differance performance results can vary enough to justify the extra testing. plus imo the 1080p will be more boardly accepted since it does double as a HDTV res standard giving it a lot of market penatration the other resolutions lack. long story short, this is an enthusist site right? so i would think a new visual technology's performance like HDTV's would be on the minds of such dedicated readers. I for one love my 42" 4ms 1080p screen more than any monitor I have owned to date, and from some of the other posts i see of peeps showing their machines off in the forums, i am far from the only one usings the technology for their high end pc gaming rig.
