samsung 2494HS - i take this one back, this monitor DOES have a feature to do this. However it only works if the aspect ratio doesnt change. (and doesnt work on 1280x720, for some rason)
So thats one screen with this "feature" albeit, rather broken.
even my samsung 40" HDTV doesnt support it, its got 4:3, "just scan" (which stretches/shrinks to fit) and zoom modes.
just because all the ones YOU have owned, in america have had it - doesnt mean shit for another country where i've owned more LCD's than you.
226BW does have it. I know it for 100% fact, as it's the monitor my father has. Chimei and AOC I can't comment on, they are rather low-level brands over here, and I wouldn't even consider buying them over here.
And you may have owned more LCDs than me, but I seriously doubt you have as much experience with LCDs as me. I build quite a few computers, and have literally messed with 100's of LCDs.
You aren't looking at the right settings, apparently, or you aussies get fuxored firmwares for no good reason.
And I never said 1:1 for all resolutions. I said almost all 1200p monitors do 1080p
