lol..they mean up to 1920x1080 input.

Here's the basic problem: there are *zero* LCDs that small 10" or below) w/ that high resolution. Nada. Zippo. No one makes 8" 1080p LCD panels that I know of. Maybe next year w/ the "retina display" tablets but nothing now. That's why you should read that w/ a big grain of salt and laugh at their marketing department :D

And that's why I'm impressed w/ the DP6...it's a real 720p (or 800p) 6" screen. I'll bet they're using the ones from portable bluray DVD players and I'm surprised Marshall isn't using the same kind unless they can't get the brightness or color rendition they want out of them. All the reviews I've dug up on the DP6 have been extremely positive.

But if you're using it for HDSLR video, look for focus peaking and false color. I'd consider these monitors toys w/o those features (and yes, that puts them up above $400-500 w/ those features)-:

ok...w/ due respect, that is *not* a 1080p screen...it's not even a 720p screen :-P
The DP7 has an actual 1280x800 pixels, so it's 720p + some display info on the bottom or top. It can also take 1080p input and will rescale it down, but also has a 1:1 panning mode so you can look at everything in detail from your 1080p video...

It most importantly has focus peaking and false color. If you're doing HD video work, those two features are pretty critical IMHO...(I'm debating whether IRE limits are a critical feature as well..still researching :-)

Any model#?
Nothing on their site has 1080p and their "news" area has an article from 2010 :eek:

Wow! I didn't think there were any true HD field monitors that weren't gigantic and expensive.
$900 isn't bad for a 720p 5.6" screen, especially w/ peaking for HD video.
Anything negative to say about it so far?
This thing seriously looks craploads better than the Marshall monitors...only thing I'd wish for is a 1080p screen...
