at the left hand side 1/8th of an inch is unusable.
at the right hand side 1/4th of an inch of the screen is not usable.
Here is a picture of me calibrating the screen using the Nvidia Control Console.
This is the 1/4th inch side, but there is still an unusable area at the left corner as well but it's only 1/8th of an inch. The line may be straight but the image is not and it is definately noticable on any bright picture. You can see where the right hand side starts to bow inward as well, but that problem is not as serious to me.
Using the desktop size adjustment I can make the image larger, but then I can't see the task bar or start button. It will also cut off the scrolling text at the bottom of the screen inside of media center. So in order to avoid these problems I have to deal with the 1/8th to 1/4th gap at the top of the TV
I'm not sure if I will have to pay a technician to come out or not, and if I do, I would be better off just returning the TV I guess? But cashback is over now, so the deal is gone and I would have to go back to my 37" LCD TV. However, the 37" is a bit small 20 feet away.
Just got a call from Mitsubishi, but the guys phone cuts in for a second then out for 6 or 7 seconds. They keep calling me but I can't hear them
