With prices like this its getting very tempting to go buy a new tv....
yes, I SOOOOO want an LCD/plasma at this size or bigger but alas, money is an issue
Looks like its 1920 x 1080i, I don't think that is even (True HD) as they have advertised. Still not a bad price, wonder what the refresh rate is.
12ms from the spec sheet
Damnit...and I ordered the Dell 2407. Should I cancel the Dell and get this instead? Its scheduled for delivery next Tuesday and I can't find any cancel order page on Dell's website.
It does 1080P via DVI
Althought the picture quality is great via DVI, component and svideo is poor.
So for someone hooking it up to a pc via DVI, this LCD would be a good option?
Seems it can handly 1080p through DVI. Just need Powerstrip installed so u can overide the resolutions on your video card. I might pick one of these up tomorrow night if I can be sure I will be able to get a refund if it doesnt support it properly.
Yep for Media Centre PC, it would be great.
There is no HDCP support
Hey do you own one of these?
I want to get rid of my 21" CRT monitor and use this 37" as my main monitor for internet browsing and all sorts and for movies, games, TV aswell.
I have a big desk so I can sit far enough away from it.
Cause I was originally looking at getting a Dell 2407 but its not big enough for games and movies in my opinion.
Also I dont think I have HDCP card anyway so i dont think thats a big concern?
No, i have an Acer 3705 MGW, which is also 1920x1080 37"
HDCP is a requirement for Vista and HD video, but you also need a compatible card.
37" is very large to sit infront for general use PC monitor.
Don't worry, over time they have, and will come down even further as they become more mainstream. Plasma's were a bit out of my price range until the last 6 months or so.
I'm looking foward to checking out this set when it comes out. Knowing Kmart, they probably won't set it up properly with a STB. Usually because the staff there only have their magnavox dvd player splitting up a composite signal 10 times over.
Then again it is Kmart and not a specialist TV store. So i don't know why i'm pointlessly whinging. For $1899, its a great buy.
I'm hoping to get one soonish, can't go too far wrong for that price I don't think. Hooked up via DVI to a HTPC set-up would be awesome I would have thought.
tell us what you think of it when you hook it up to the pc coz thats what i want to do with it gogo tv card tuner in pc
So has anyone got it yet? I'm so keen on getting it this evening after work. And will my 6800GT be able to drive this LCD?
Its not that larger resolution, so you're vid card should be fine for HDTV. Gaming may struggle at higher settings. Don't forget its the resolution that makes it harder to push, not the sheer physical size.
Also i was under the impression the 1080i is HD in Australia. e.g. we don't get 1080p.
Australia calls 576P, 720P and 1080i HD.
No one is broadcasting 1080P at the moment.
Blue-Ray will see the introduction of 1080P to the consumer.
That is true. In fact, 576p, 720p and 1080i are all HD in Australia. Not this ED stuff. But, I guess until the stations get the 1080p equipment, and we get the TV's, it is 1080i at the most for us.
Does anyone know if its VESA standard?
