    Pleased to report no faulty pixels. But have one problem with PC connection. Analogue D sub to DVI is fine but when I connect DVI to DVI the picture has over emphasized red. Not a colur balance issue because no amount of adjustment cures it. It was ok until I swapped back to analogue to see which I preffered but know I cannot get it to work DVI to DVI without the red tinge. Any ideas?

    I think other people have got DVI > DVI to work without problems, so maybe it's a problem with your TV?

    Can you post pics of it?

    Sorted, faulty graphics card. Strange really as it was ok until I swapped back to analogue. Just tried another graphics card and all is well! Do you notice any difference between DVI & analogue? I cant see any. I am really impressed with this screem got windows runing at 1360 x 768 and the image is superb. Nebula digi TV looks great as well.

    Ah thats good. Do you have the 32GA3E/4E series? Or the more expensive one?

    How does it look when a PC is connected to it DVI > DVI?

    I've never really compared analogue and digital side by side, but if you have the choice, obviously go with digital. I think a digital connection shows it's advantages with higher resolution screens, and when it comes to interference from other electrical things.

    Great to hear you got it sorted. May I ask: are you using Powerstrip, and if so, what settings did you find worked well with the Sharp at that resolution?

    Cheers.

    I have the GA4E. Cant really comment on picture quality between analogue & digital because of the problems I had last night ran out of time. Both are awesome, desktop is as good as 17 inch TFT LCD. I am seriously impressed. With regards to powerstrip I am using one of the predefined settings. Looked slightly blurry until I let the Sharp do the auto centering thing and it is truly superb.

    I think I might be buying one of those either today or Monday.

    Only one of the online retailers reckoned they were getting some in within the week (www.tvandvideodirect.com) -- and they also allow you to buy now and pay later. Stuff the money into an interest-bearing account for six months and get an even bigger discount -- works out to another £25 off!
