An OK screen but could do better
on 10 February 2008
I purchased this screen based on some of the reviews given but mainly on the impressive specs. However after setting up the screen I found my excitement short lived. The screen itself is OK, the picture is average for an LCD but no where near as good as the Sony Bravia. The screen only has 1 HDMI, which I could live with as bought a HDMI switch box, but it doesn't have a SVHS socket !!! This proves a major floor when wanting to run a laptop through the screen. Hooking it up via a RGB gives a unfocused and Blurry image, not suitable at all.
If this screen was being bought for Game Play (Xbox / PS3), no problem, it's adequate. If it's being bought to also watch TV, consider something else, my suggestion would be the Sony KDL26S3000 - 26'' Widescreen Bravia HD Ready LCD TV - With Freeview £379.99, a little more costly but has an SVHS socket and 2 HDMI, the screen is also far clearer on SD and gorgeous on HD.
Finally the remote is very slow and unresponsive, not a major issue but very annoying when stting up the set or trying to make adjustments...
