Wow... No one likes? :cry: 

I love this screen! Cheaper than a 30" dell uber-resolution, and a good balance of screen size and resolution!

Looks pretty good. Can you split screen and or float a dual input screen while using the PC on it, simultaneously using the LCD's built in tuner?
How sharp is PC image compared with the Dell's output quality?

There is no PIP. AFAIK you cant to that...

As for comparing to a Dell, Ive never seen one, but I can tell you that I run this screen at minimal on the sharpness adjustment.

I sit about 2.0-2.5ft away, and I cant see the pixels.

The panel is extremely bright, and the contrast is fantastic. Colors are very natural and vibrant.

Honestly, I didn't know what I was getting into, and the display is costly, but once I got it set up and running, I know its worth it!

Keep in mind that this is someone coming from a 22" Trinitron and was very very hesitant to take the LCD plunge!

This display also has viperdrive, and I use that as my PC input, and I don't see any lag or ghosting when play CSS or other FPS games! The actual responce is fast. Viperdrive bypasses the internal processing and that reduces process time on the display significantly!

!! I love this screen!!!

that is a testimony for sure... :D

Do you mean overdrive?

Though it should be noted that all LCD monitors have motion blur/smearing even if they are faster than a CRT. No LCD (except maybe for special BFI or high Hz models) are free from blur or smearing due to the way LCDs work vs CRTs.

No, not overdrive. Its a bit different. Viperdrive bypasses the internal processing for faster responce.

There is a noticeable difference between the viper drive ports and regular ports.

Even though there is motion blur, with low latency and greatly reduced processing, the blur is minimal or not noticeable at all.

There is a slight difference between this and my CRT, but its a difference I can live with!

This also acts as my primary TV, for movies and all games.

Even though its not stated in the specs, I am running this screen @ 120hz.

Is that 60Hz interlaced or noninterlaced?
April 3, 2007 10:18:47 PM

120hz progressive... Its still unknown if there is any effect on performance.

That's the second time you've mentioned this bypassing of internal processing as if we're all supposed to know what kind of processing actually goes on, er, internally. Maybe you could elaborate... .

Why are you running your LCD monitor @120Hz? Was that the default value you got after PnP did its thing, or did you manually set it hoping that it would make a difference...? AFAIK, ony a few select TVs are using 100/120Hz panels... . No offense, but I really doubt that you were so lucky to land the first 120Hz "monitor" for the low-low price of $1200.-

Last but not least: I find my 24" intimidating so I can't imagine what it's like working in front of 32"s worth of real estate. You must have to swivel your had a lot, lol :)  At least the font size is still reasonable! (...not).

I dont know exactly what the internal electronics do, but I do notice a difference in response between the ports that support it and those witch dont.

Im running the panel @ 120hz because it allowes me the option.

The default value was 60hz, but its working right now @ 120hz. Wether it makes any difference or not is a different story. The Viperdrive seems to make up for it, if there is no 120hz support. But its confusing as to if the 120hz makes a difference.

Look at it this way. 120hz improves response. Viperdrive improves response. Wether either one is working, or if both work, all that matters is that there is no visible ghosting, and motion blur is very minimal.

Ohh and the text is very resonably sized. Very sharp and easy to read. No head turning, just a bit more eye movement.

When you say ports, you are talking physical interfaces (eg. DVI-D female socket, etc), right...? How many Viperdrive-enabled interfaces does this puppy have, anyhow?

Back to that so-called 120Hz... is your feeling of improved response based on some kind of A/B testing?

Thx for putting up with the twenty questions... :wink:

Wait a sec, this is a TV set... :?

120Hz monitors do not actually increase the response time, but are meant to reduce the motion blur visible on LCD monitors running at lower refresh rates. The monitor still needs to have response times capable of meeting this faster refresh rate, so manufacturers might couple the 120Hz with a panel that has a good response time (as noted by behardware).

The Aquos is a really nice LCD HDTV.

I'll probably buy the 42" or 46" sometime next year to replace my good 'ol 27" Panasonic Tau TV.

Yeah, I notated the ports above...

Yes, I just switch the ports and play my game and compare.

No problem about the questions...

Ill be as honest as I can in case anyone is looking to buy this display.

Blur is evident, like snapping the mouse while playing creates a slight bit of blur... I havent seen an LCD display that doesnt do this. I consider myself an avid FPS gamer, and there is a difference, and it seems to slow me down a bit. But also consider that im looking at a huge display, and everything seems different. Afterall, this is something that I can deal with...

I was also playing HL2 and I would launch dark orange, and black objects into a bright sky, and I didnt see any motion blur at all. 100% crisp image flying through the air.

Im guessing my next purchase will be LCOS or something with at least 10,00:1 native contrast and even faster response. I saw a demo of 1000:1 vs 1,000,000:1 contrast and the difference was amazing.

Do you know if LCOS flickers (like a CRT) or holds and changes (like an LCD)? The problem with LCDs is that they do not flicker; so even if you had an LCD with a response time that was the the speed of light, it would still blur, because it doesn't flicker. Raising the refresh rate supposedly helps, as does adding a black frame to simulate flicker.

BTW, on another note... I have read good things about LCOS. Yet, everytime I looked at rear projection screens in the store, they simply look terrible compared to an LCD or Plasma.
