    I know that there are threads on this but none really help me so please don't have a go.:D

    Anyway, I am hoping to get something like this:


    in the near future and I was just wondering about the resolution and scaling. If I connected my macbook to it with a DVI cable and the adapter, would I be able to get a full screen picture and would 1920x1080 be an option when selecting the resoulution. What I'm trying to get at is, the picture won't be streched or squashed because it isn't 1920x1200 will it?

    Nope... it won't be squashed although you might have a bit of trouble getting it set up initially. I've got a 52" 1080P sharp LCD. I took a while to get it to output properly but it works just fine now.

    See this thread for more info:
