From what I gather through reading several threads at AVS Forum 1:1 is simply that you get true 1920x1080 with a PC input. If the set does not have 1:1 then you get blurry text. Vizio says both on thier older 47" 1080p and the new 1080p 42" that 1920x1080 can not be achieved with a PC, but they only reference the VGA input...People are having success with 1:1 with both TV's by using an DVI --> HDMI cable. I'll give it a go this weekend when I'll have some time (woot! New job is M-F 7:30-3:30 with school holidays off )

Also, for people saying they saw this set a while back at costco, you didn't...This set came out late June...The one you probably saw was the 720p 42" by Vizio...The 1080p version kicks ass imo...

@ MikeC...I thought this set was awesome, but I was watching it (Blu Ray) with a "All in One Box" crappy Surround combo...I have since hooked up my 5500's and man...What a difference with thumping base during action sequences...Very nice indeed

On Any Given Sunday!
