This could be wrong, but I think I read in Sound and Vision or Home Theater Magazine that it takes something like a 60"+ screen to display all the pixels for a 1080p, fixed pixel screen (like LCD, DLP). Plus, most TV's that are marketed as 1080p are DLP and TI doesn't have enough mirrors on the micromirror chip to be able to handle all the pixels. They fake it by running at 120Hz, like the Hitachi TVs mentioned by Tom's, and shift the image by half a pixel each time, instead of running at 60Hz and shifting by a whole pixel. Oh, and then there's the issue that almost all 1080p TVs have HDMI and component inputs that are theoretically capable of 1080p, but they can't accept a 1080p signal. WTH?
