Old post, but beware the Viewsonic LCDs.
They advertise 1080p but it's NOT achieveable via computer.
It's locked to 1680x1050 or below.

Same deal with the n4785p.

There is a Viewsonic model that supports 1080p via Computer, but I don't have the part number off hand. It's listed on the website.

EDIT: The 1080p via comptuter is n4X90p replacing X with 2 or 7.

Very good to know. Thats really strange though. Something to do with their digital/analogue controller I guess..

If you plan on going 27" or larger, the screen needs to be 1080p, and those start at 32". Westinghouse makes 37" and 42" computer monitors (LVM-37W3, LVM-37W3se, LVM-42W2). Really, they're TVs, but they're considered monitors because they lack built-in tuners. They're quite good as monitors if you ask me.

Anything beyond 42" is really too large as a monitor. The pixel pitch becomes too great.

However, when you're spending that much, you might as well get a Dell 2707WFP or 3007WFP-HC. The 2707 is probably a better choice, as it has a 1920x1200 resolution; 3007 is a whopping 2560x1600. You can snag a 2707WFP for a couple hundred less than a 32" or 37" 1080p LCD, and it'll have considerably better colors and contrast.

I've been a fan of projectors ever since I bought my first one about 5 years ago.
I just recently purchased an Epson Powerlite 720.
I'll have to hook it up and make some notes.

My Aquos 32" 1080P wont do more than 1600x1200 on VGA, which is odd since my 24" display will do 1920x1200 without a problem.

Hmmm....my Aquos 32" 1080p doesnt have VGA.... nor DVI. Only HDMI's. But DVI-HDMI cables do the full 1920x1080 no problem
