    I'd rather find the faults before I put the money down! :D

    Maybe if we all post in this thread, and mention things that our LCDs have a lot of trouble in displaying, I could put together an LCD Stress Test DVD and let people download it, burn it to a disc and take it to the store?

    I've found football matches show up ghosting a fair bit - england match on sat BBC1 would be a good place to start.

    perhaps the old school screensaver, you know the one with the coloured lines fizzing about the screen. Set it to the fastest setting and then see if you notice any ghosting. Just an idea, im not saying thats a true test of how it'll work withother stuff.

    Slim, download quicktime and then download a HD trailer, that would give the best results. Or just play a DVD with alot of action and quick changing scenes.
