    Mines on it's way this week, I'll be able to post something about when it arrives. There's another guy on here who has it and says the PQ is excellent through his freeview box but no word about it's use on games consoles. 16ms sounds like it should be good enough though.

    I ordered mine on Sat afternoon. I got the order number but it will not display anything if I go and check it on the MISCO site!

    Hopefully everything will be ok!

    BTW, is this the same V7 27" that has problems with come of the screens boing nuts after a while? I have read that some people have had to return them!

    Yeh I have the same problem on the Misco site, I hope everything will be fine on Monday when they've manually processed it. I'm worried about a typo and an increase in price though! Where did you read that the screens go crazy :confused: ?

    Just received this very quick reply to my question with regards to the Video7

    The native resolution of the V7 LTV"7C is 1280x720. This is excactly the
    resolution of HDTV 720p.
    The V7 LTV27C accepts HDTV via its component YUV connector and supports the
    resolutions 720p and 1080i.
    For these both resolution it is real 1:1 pixel mapping.

    yes, was a misprice. just had my order cancelled :mad:

    Amazon have them for £479.99, which still seems reasonable - unless anyone has any better suggestions around the the £500 mark?

    Just had my order cancelled also. Darn. I am annoyed. 423ukp + VAT is the real price. Oh I am so disappointed, not that I thought I would actually get it :)

    Hi again, Videoseven LTV27C TV arrived on Monday and I've been using it for a couple of days so heres a quick review:

    Overall very pleased with it, first impression out of the box was good, very tidy unit with buttons on the top and inputs in two seperate compartments on the back. I've been using it as a PC monitor via VGA in 1280x768 last couple of days and it handles everything very well. Originally tried using the S-video output on my graphics card but picture was very poor as expected. No dead pixels from what I can see.

    When playing Pro Evo 4 and Brian Lara PC games there is no blurring or smearing which was something I was worried about as the screen is cheaper than most :thumbsup:. Pretty sure there wouldn't be any ghosting problems running consoles on it. Films are perfectly represented, blacks are rich and colours very vibrant. Text is pin sharp using a Belkin VGA cable (Dixons £19.99). The WinMedia 720p HD clips look fantastic.

    I tried it with my old Daewoo freeview box through scart and the picture was good, unless viewed quite close up but I imagine its the same with all other LCDs out of their native resolution. An old LG DVD player was a similar story. Hopefully my new progressive scan DVD player using component input will not have this problem.

    Sound quality isn't great using the internal speakers, lacking a lot of bass but a cheap subwoofer through the input would sort that out. I'll be using my Rotel amp and monitor speakers so SQ wasn't something I required.

    So for £480, it's a bit of a steal unless you need a (more futureproof?) DVI input.

    Hope this helps :D

    Chris

    Hello all,

    Can anyone out there that has this TV confirm if you have any problems playing a 60hz source through the scart of composite inputs? Mine doesnt seem to support it, but 50hz is fine. Seems odd for a tv of this resolution not to support it.

    Can someone confirm whether i have a dodgy tv or not? Cheers.
