I wouldn't think I'd ever be that close to it!  I think I'm sold on
the case that for watching TV then there is no need to 1080 on 37"

How does the "desktop" resolution relate to the "TV" resolution  Would
you configure the graphics card/OS to the same resolution as the set?
(ie 1,366 x 768 for one Panasonic set I've just looked up)  If so then
1,920 x 1,080 seems a better.
