Looks good! Any reason why 1366 x 768 is not available as a PC resolution? Is there a way of getting native resolution with a PC?

Great review, nice looking TV. But is it available in black?

Surely Sony would have caught more of an already niche market with a TV that looks like a TV rather than a picture frame, I know it's a stumbling block for me as think it would look outdated in 6 months!

Is there any reason why '720p' sets have the resolution 1366x768 whereas 720p is actually 1280x720 and therefore unless you view the 720p content in a box it is not natively displayed and therefore has scaling, which usually means a poorer quality picture (atleast over that small scaling as 1 pixel is about 1.1 - 1.2 pixels rather than say 2 in which case scaling works better). On the other hand 1080p sets can display it natively as 1080p sets have 1080x1920 and that is the same resolution as the content. So to summarise why does 720p TV's (actually 768p) not have the same resolution as the content it was designed for yet 1080p TV's do. I think I may be missing something here but to get an answer would be nice as this is a question that has had me stumped for a while.

Looks truly awful and the PC resolutions and HDMI can be easily beaten along with price on a two year old Samsung.
