after i setup the monitor, got it connected and pretty much had a visual orgasm when i popped in a movie, i was shocked to find it could not handle small fonts properly
single pixel lines were not being displayed properly!
for instance a vertical red line may be displayed as red, white or black depending on where it was displayed on the screen (same goes for green and blue)
attached is a bitmap that demostrated the problem in a very obvious way
since this set is to be my computer monitor for my new HTPC (and my only PC), this artifact was not acceptable
i called tech support (# is on the box), they took down details and said somebody would call or email - that was almost a week ago - not a peep from tech support
i was going to call them again tonight, but decided to 1st play around a little more
long story short, my video card was sending the monitor 1080i and this was causing the problem - i'm surprised it couldn't handle 1080i properly
after some fiddling around with my vid card's config software (geForce 7900GT) i was able to get 1080p as a HDTV option (god only knows how i finally got it to appear! it took a lot of random monkey-like key presses)
one of the main take-aways here is...
don't assume you're getting 1080p if the set's "info" screen says "V Freq: 60 1920x1080"
