    What with the documented Moire effect on currnet Panasonic 26 inch models (ie 36pl30 ans 36pb50) I was wondering if this would also affect PS2 and Dreamcast games running in NTSC as I own both US machines.

    Any help would be much appreciated as I have to make a decision on a tv soon (due to replacing my 36ZP18P Tosh - many faults)

    Thanks in advance

    Anyone, please, Im getting dangerously close to having to choose a tv and dont want to make another mistake.
    Also is the moire effect evident on PAL as well as NTSC DVDs as I could always just buy PAL and put up with it, due to other tvs having much more major problems after extensive 'research'

    I have more faith in people that write on these forums than any of the so called 'specialised mags' who seem to 'forget' to mention certain problems over others. Who can you trust nowadays?

    TBH I don't know, but I'd recommend taking the DC into a large shop like Dixons and ask to try it out on the TV's you mentioned. There's nothing quite like seeing things with your own eyes.

    BTW won't you be running both consoles through RGB anyway? If the problem is just with NTSC, it would only be a problem if you got a GC.
