Speaking out of ignorance, but why can't they just blow the image up with more pixels and maybe add some anti-aliasing options? Sure they'd have to include hardware for that but its not like the tech doesn't exist.

I have no memory of this. My first LCD PC monitor didn't do that.

Resolution/Upscaling filters selection, filters on/off, adaptive sync

Thats a shame. I have limits for what I'll pay for a TV or Monitor, but if the features are there along with build quality, I'm willing to pay a bit more. You put some stupid markup on it, like they do with gsync displays and it a no-go.
