    Just bought one. The new model RE15LA30. Nice. Only missing one thing (minor niggle) a 16x9 mode. Makes a good PC monitor as well. Teletext is quick. Sound is a bit thin/tinny.

    Bought on Saturday. Been using it in the dining room since. Picture quality is excellent, even with the slightly noisy signal from my second (loft mounted) aerial). To re-iterate, sound quality is very thin via tiny internal speakers, but is NICAM stereo.

    Only minor issue - as with all LCDs, the angle of view affects the picture contrast. It's less noticable on this than on some PC monitors I've seen.

    It handles CVBS input in PAL or NTSC no problem, and handles a PC RGB input at 1024x768@70hz beautifully. You can see the full specs here

    Morning All,


    I know this is a little strange, but just to take us to a 'way back when' memory, I thought I'd resurrect this little post from five, yes 5 years ago, just to give us a little reality check to as how far we have come in all this time .

    Over £600 for a 15" monitor :eek: ahh those were the day's

    I love the use of the words "one of those" in the original threads header title like it's some kind of newly found alien technology .

    I also read in a current magazine that when the 30" Sharp LC-30HV2E LCD TV was launched in 2002 it would set you back £5,500 ! :eek: :eek:

    How much things have moved on, hey ? :) Makes you think. :rolleyes:

    regards

    CG

    Well, yes. When they first introduced it, Panasonic has a 848x480 22 inch LCD TV for GBP2500. It isn't that long ago....
