To all 436-XDE owners who are also football fans, can you tell me what your viewing experience has been like with the footy?

Have you tried both 75Hz and 100Hz is there any dreaded 'judder'?

This screen is they key to my 2006 World cup experience next year, so I need your honest opinions please. :thumbsup:

Sorry, not a footy fan, from what little I saw of match of the day, didn't notice any judder and I'm running at 100Hz.

You can choose between 75Hz and 100Hz, made no difference as far as I could see, but 75Hz creates a louder buzzing sound from my screen.

It's by no means perfect but I didn't find it distracting. I've played with both settings and find 100Hz smoother.

Watched loads of footie over the weekend, I switched between 75 and 100 a few times and didn't notice any difference really.

nightsoil,

were you happy with the performance? Any screen burn/image retention from the score logos?

Will35 You set the refresh rate by going to the home menu and into options and there it is.

The only reason it is not up there with the Panny is because the Panny is still on back order. Keep waiting you can put it up there soon. :)

Performance is great, especially enjoyed watching starwars 2 / asteroid chase scene yesterday. Colours compared to my NEC where almost 3d like (if that makes any sense!)

Had a small amount of image retention from the red/white/blue score logo on sky. It vanished after about 15 mins of watching another channel.

I normally zoom the logo's off the screen to be honest.
