First, thanks to all the posters in this thread - what a wealth of knowledge!
Today I purchased a 42LH30, and I'm not sure if I'm happy with it or not. Last month I purchased an Insignia 42" on a friend's recommendation, but I found there was lots of blurring when using my attached PC (Mac Mini). Text was especially bad. I also have a PVR through the Mac Mini and watching certain programming was also blurry. I figured these problems were the result of a low end TV, so I returned it today and got the LG.
I find the overall colour quality to be somewhat better, however I'm still having the same issue with my connected PC, although to a lesser extent. After reading here and on some other forums, I figure the problem may have to do with the overscan settings. If I choose a 1080p resolution, there's a thick black border around the edges and the picture is slightly fuzzy. If I check the overscan option, it's corrected, however with the slightly garbled text that I experienced with my old panel. No other resolution I can choose improves on this situation - 1080p is as good as it gets.
I read on some other forums that this is because the panel is not truly translating the DVI to HDMI data as 1:1, and this seems to make sense. Am I out of luck with this display for having crystal clear PC output?
Thanks for any help.
