    Hyundai have invested heavily in a new $10million plant in Korea just making LCD panels, and this panel (and its 32" sister) show the quality they can produce.

    The UK is a little behind on Hyundai sales compared to Germany where it is still one of the biggest selling brand name products, and this is about to change.

    Hyundai have established a very strong name in the PC TFT Market with very fast Gaming models so they know their stuff...

    You will not be disappointed!

    Toms Hardware reviewed an early version on the 32" and since then the panels (both 32" and 26") have been updated to a better spec but as yet has not been reviewed in the UK..

    I have a 26" set up in my dinning room now and must admit the quality is really good, both with my sky, and my Mini PC....Im very happy with it. 32" will be ordered before Xmas for the living room..

    If the brand name was bigger in the UK, this would be a much more expensive product but they are being very aggressive on price to gain more market share and customer awareness.

    Also, just had a look at the spec on the american site, and apparently it only does 1024x768 in 'pc mode' which i presume means via the vga input. Is this a common occurence in these types of panels? I would have thought if the resolution of the screen is 1280x768 it should be able to handle that via the vga input?

    Does anyone have any similar exerience with other lcdtv/monitor panels of this size?

    The full spec can be found at www.hyundiaq.com

    The screen is clear enough for the pc, which I use for some gaming and internet browsing.

    The model is definately the HQL260WR....I know my Hyundai VERY well. :)

    CoolCurly, can you confirm if the set is capable of using the full 1280x768 resolution via the vga input from your pc? the spec on the site only lists up to 1024x768, which seems silly.
