    Good evening,

    Picked up one of these today from JL Solihull and got a price match for £979.00 including their 5 year warranty. Absolutely chuffed to bits.

    Fired it up on just the aerial lead to get the auto install done and was really impressed.

    I have bought it primarily for the DVI input to run from my PC and also will be connecting a PS2 via component inputs.. Anyone recommend a decent DVI cable? Needs to be quite long, around 8 metres.

    Have put it away for now until I get one.

    Also eventually will be wall mounting. Can you recommed any wall brackets?

    Thanks for your help.

    Cheers

    Paul

    blossom where did you get the £979 price match from for them to match to ,
    i read on these forums that they often will not price match to internet prices?

    Hi Roberte,

    I phoned them on Friday and asked them if they would match vs Crampton and Moore, Sheffield at £979.00 as they were showing as having stock on pricerunner. Also metioned RGB direct who I believe have a store. They agreed immediately. They said they would hold one for me until I Ok'd with the Mrs and could deliver Thursday or Friday.

    I went in their today to finalise the deal and they had one there so I took it away.

    They would have delivered it for that price as well.

    Needless to say I am pleased with the deal.

    Good luck.

    Cheers

    Paul

    is it an HDCP on DVI panel?

    You can never find the important information on most websites!
