do you have the model numbers ? or the site ?


Well 1366*768 is whats considered 720p. All 720p TV's can do 1080i, which is 1920*1080 but you don't want that for gaming.

Based on your description of the television, its resolution is 1366x768, nothing more. this is not an uncommon resolution for a 32" television. What the salesman is telling you regarding "Full HD" is correct 720p is considered Full HD. It is just not Full 1080p HD.

Regarding the spec on the LG, all that means is that the television is capable of accepting a 1080p video signal through its HDMI port. The television will still only display @ 1366x768 (that's all the pixels that exist in the panel). The 1080p input signal will be scaled down to the panels native resolution of 1366x786.

If you are looking for a true 1080p display, you need to find one that has an actual panel resolution of 1920x1080. It will probably cost a little more than a 720p (1366x768) television.

What hednik was referring to, is... depending on how close you sit to the monitor/television, and your eyesight/sensitivity to the "screen door effect", it is quite possible that you will notice more of the pixel structure (the square/rectangular components that make up the picture/ and the spaces between them) more with a 1366x768 panel vs. a 1920x1080. This is because the pixels are physically larger when comparing on the same size panel. A 1920x1080 panel has a little over 2 million "effective" pixels... A 1366x768 a little over 1 million.

The decision really has to do with you, and what you see at the viewing distance you plan to be at when using the display.

Although geared toward home theater, and by no means a perfect guide, here is a pretty good article that may help you in deciding. A few of its charts compare screen size vs. viewing distance vs. panel resolution, and at what distance a higher resolution begins to become benefitial.

Screen Size vs. Viewing Distance vs. Resolution

If you have a way of seeing both monitors, and getting the real "picture" at a set distance that you believe you will view the monitor, that would be the best test of what you actually need (or feel you need).

Ultimately, it comes down to what you utimately can live with vs. the cost of the higher resolution monitor.
