Only the US versions have DVI apparently. That is what I was told by the sales person when I demoed this unit.

DVI is not on the US version. EU law is about to jack up the price on 'monitors' with DVI, they will be re classified as TV's and will carry the 14% tariff. No official word, but I'm sure this is fuji's game.

Great plasma though.......:clap:

Even my ' I don't like all this home cinema stuff' missus said it's the best plasma she's seen of the ones I dragged her to look at:smashin:

Guys

Got it this week, only had it up and running for the last 3 days so no chance yet to Avia it or do any serious tweaking.

Compared it to Panny 6, Pioneer 433/434, Hitachi 500 series. Wanted to include NEC42X2 but nobody in the country could give me a demo.

Initial thoughts- Stay away from the Natural mode! if you use the fine mode the picture improves hugely.

Does very well with less than perfect sources, since this is going into the lounge, that was important to me.

Motion handled better than the others including the Panny on which it's based, and no real sign of the dreaded flicker.

There is definitely huge potential with this screen- Having recommended/installed a PW6 for a friend I can honesly say that IMO the futjitsu offers a better overall package than the Panny,

DVD via component_ WOW!!!! Very solid colours for a sdef plasma and very 3D feel to the pictures.

Interestingly, my old Toshiba 330 gave a very impressive picture using interlaced component, I'll have to do some comparisons with the Pioneer 565 using progressive scan and without- it could be that the processing in the plasma is better than that of the players.

Using the freeview box (Pace twin) gives a very respectable picture, although I think it would improve if I had routed a scart for RGB. Using s-video into a converter for the scart input

When I get the chance to have a serious play, I'll post my thoughts, but it'll not compare to some of the technical reviews you'll read elsewhere!! That said I'll try to describe in whatever way I can what I see.

Very happy with my purchase so far. Girlfriend loves it now its here

Hope this helps
 
thanx for the update !

Please post a picture from your setup on the ' get your plasmas out for the lads ' thread, I would love to soo yours, there isn't a single Fujitsu plasma screen pictured in that thread.

CHeers,

david

Now I'll have to admit I don't know exactly how to post pictures:blush:

just make a picture in jpeg format, less than 640 KB . And when you post you can add an image or upload it to http://photobucket.com/ and paste the url, it's easy.
I am very curious :)

I can confirm both rumours, a VHA and VCA31 will be samsung based. DVI will be not in my definition of summer, 4th Q. VHA30 will continue till then.
