Btw, your new membership would be even better served with some PICS!
Yes, I should have said everything is working fine. I just finished testing SD DVD upconverted to 1080i which looks nice. I think I prefer it to the plasma, but that is probably the TVs I'm looking at as well as my own tastes. Regular TV (from an old DirecTV receiver looks about as good as possible and is about the same as the plasma, but as long as it doesn't look terrible I'm happy there. Also for those that are worried about lag time for gaming I played a few games including PGR3 with a lot of fast motion and I didn't notice any problems. It seemed the exact same as a regular CRT and a plasma. I haven't used it to play PC games (yet) but I really doubt that performance in online FPS games etc. will be affected by using this monitor. I guess some people will have to find something else to blame their losses on.
Hacks, cheats, campers and netwok traffic are still valid excuses... All kidding aside, I'll try PC performance at a few different resolutions and see what I come up with.
Another thing that looks better than plasma (so far) are poeple's faces. WIth the plasma I've seen many examples of the sides of faces looking like the texture was missing and I haven't seen that yet on the LCD. I have a LOT more testing to do, but I will make sure to report my findings here and compare notes with other forum members as they appear. I will try to acquire a digital camera for some pics today or tomorrow too. Still no banding in any source, but I don't have a solid grey pattern to check.
Feel free to list things to check and I'll add them to my list if they aren't already on it.
Also, DVI testing may be more difficult than I anticipated. My DVI cable for PC is not the same as the DVI input on the TV (it has extra prongs) so I'll have to figure this out. If anyone knows if DVI for PC is different than DVI with stereo components feel free to save me some time. Thanks.
