MBP + $300 Dynex DX-L32-10A 32" LCD = nice
Just wanted to share my experience with this display. It recently went on sale for $300 (http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals/926959/) so I was willing to give it a shot.
It's was easy to setup. I had a DVI to HDMI converter and the MBP recognized the TV without a hitch. Initially it goes to 1080i and is fuzzy, but switching the display to the native resolution of 1360x768 makes everything crisp and sharp. Can't ask much more of a $300 TV. Downside is that the speakers are horrible so you will want to use an external set if you want to watch enjoy movies.
Just finished watching Bolt in 720p and it was amazing to say the least. Note, I would not use this as a display as 1360x768 at 32" is not enough resolution for long term reading.
Tried a Mac Mini (2006) 1.5 Ghz Core Solo which could handle 1920x1080 on a 52" Sony LCD but could not do 1360x768 natively on this Dynex. I quickly tried SwitchResX but I could not get it to work correctly.
Tried a MacBook white, 2 years + old, and it could not do 1360x768. It uses whatever the resolution of the laptop screen is. I quickly tried SwitchResX but I could not get it to work correctly.
Tried a MacBook Pro (2.5Ghz) - pre unibody days and it displays 1360x768 with no problems.
