Without that disabled, the signal will never fit the panel dot-for-dot.
You also want to check the TV's specifications to see what the native resolution of the PANEL is. Many TV's state they can accept 1080 "HD" (whatever the hell that is) but actually can not display a 1080 image to to the lower resolution panel used.
Both the monitors have "PC mode" or "Game mode" although unfortunately the store I'm buying from doesn't accept open box returns. As for the resolutions, the Samsung has a native res of 1366x768 while the Sanyo has a res of 1920x1080. And that's the thing I'mm confused about. When I went to check the Samsung monitor it does have this 1080p sticker on it although I think it can only do 720p since it's only "HD-Ready" and not "Full-HD". Is my assumption correct?
