Actually, if you read the post linked to above, you'll see that native "off" would/could have an advantage for a 720p HD TV, but not with a 1080i/p HD TV.mr anderson said:Samsung 67" dlp 1080p

I could see the benefit of leaving it on "native" when using a 720p hd tv. However, then again, whatever signal the tv gets it will most likely pre-process before displaying it anyhow. So unless you had a really crappy tv, it wouldn't really matter what native was set to.
As to "why": might be that their supplier has a better "deal" on that chip or flat panel.jaywdetroit said:Why are manufacturers making 1366x768 native sets, if the source is 720p??
My set is 1366x768, I have native on, anyone disagree with that?
