you can profile it of course for photo work but that is no good for video playback or games, for games you are stuck, for video playback simply get out of PC mode

Viola.....in short, when driven with a DVI-HDMI cable, text became sharp & clear.

Thank you for sharing more results with us in the other thread.

I'll link it here in case anyone missed it, complete with pics: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1367796

Officially added the 40" version to my shortlist
