Oh man, I friggen love it, so much I was going to make a thread just for it ahhaha

If you get the 25.5" you're gonna not regret it. I bought mine as an on the shelf model, and i've had it for a year and a half with no dead pixels or anything.

Granted, it was still something like 400 dollars, but it was worth the money.

Go for it The resolution is awesome to game at, I've been playing CS:S all day at 1920x1200 and it's so fun.

If those TVs are LCD or Plasma they aren't interlaced, they're progressive.

If they aren't advertised as 1080p its because they don't physically have 1920x1080 pixels. Heck, they technically can't even do 1080i.

TV is either broadcast in either 1080i and 720p, when a TV is advertised as being able to do 1080i/720p but not 1080p all it means is the TV will accept the 1080i broadcast signal and then deinterlace and downscale it to whatever its native resolution is (in the case of the mentioned cheaper TVs that resolution is likely 1366 x 768)

IIRC only CRT HDTVs are interlaced where every other line of a 1080i broadcast (CBS, NBC, CW, etc) is natively drawn at 30fps, whereas LCD and Plasma TVs will deinterlace 1080i broadcasts to provide a progressive picture, and will naturally display 720p broadcasts (FOX, ABC/ESPN, etc)
