Default Re: lcd 32'' tv to desktop using hdmi

Frank:
I am not sure how to take that comment. Are you arguing that he shouldn't upgrade?
HD = 1280x720
Full HD = 1920x1080

People often (me included) say HD when they actually mean Full HD.
HD is a long gone and dead resolution.

Biker, it's up to the guy himself really, I totally agree with you that 720p is dead and gone and 1080p is a big improvement, but depending on his usage, if the TV is good enough for what he wants it for, and it works then it's worth keeping!

What I never understood is a lot of modern TVs referred to as 720p (HD Ready) weren't 1280*720, but 1366*768, maybe they thought "it's close enough..." lol

oh yeah, HD ready. I remember that.

it's up to him, sure. I would just have upgraded a long time ago. Full HD LED TV's are rather cheap these days and the image quality is much better. not to mention that LED beats LCD any day due to TV thickness, better backlight and less watt usage. But sure, if it works for him, keep it.
But it just sounded like Frank was arguing that an upgrade isn't worth it, which i disagree in.
