    Hi All,

    I see that all the Plasma talk on the forum is of Panny's & Pioneers... fine dispalys as I am sure they are, does anyone run an NEC MP3 which you can give me your opinions on.

    I am planning on buying this to match with a Denon 3800 DVD....I intend to run the DVD & Sky box (Vis JS RGB-Component converter) through Denon AVC11SR outputting Component into the Plasma component inputs....the audio from the Sky?DVD will be fed into the Denon Amp & Output to JM Labs Cobalt speakers.

    Your comments/opinions would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Skippy...

    Hi Skippy88,

    I originaly had an NEC 4210W which I traded in for a 42MP2.

    I ran the MP2 until very recently when I sold it in order to move up to a 50" Panasonic TH-50PHW5B.

    Aside from their reduced black level performance in comparison to Panasonic panels, I always found both of my NEC screens to offer an excellent picture quality with vibrant and realisitic colours. :)

    I believe the MP3 has improved black levels in comparison to my MP2 and therefore will be an excellent screen, I would however give serious consideration to the High Resolution MP4 model. One of the main reasons for my upgrade was the desire to obtain a High Resolution panel for future HD-DVD use, and I can now confidently state that my only significant concern, that of how good a standard DVD image would look when scaled up to my new panels 1366 x 768 resolution has been laid to rest. My DVD's look great on my High Resolution display so don't let any concerns about this put you off!

    In a couple of years time you may well be very grateful that you decided to opt for a Higher Resolution panel now, when you see how much more picture information they can extract from a HD-DVD signal than a standard 853 x 480 resolution panel can.

    To summarise then, IMHO the MP3 is a good screen but If I were you, and you wish to stick with NEC, I'd give serious consideration to the MP4 model. My ultimate advice however would be to go for the Panasonic 42" / 50" High Resolution models.

    Best Regards,
    KBDVD.
