Hi, I've decided to replace my 10-year old 21" Trinitron! I'm very sensitive to flicker (I can't use a PC <85Hz) and after looking at 100Hz sets next to 50Hz sets I've decided I want one. I realise the picture isn't quite as natural, but it's nowhere near as bad as I remember when 100Hz sets first started appearing and I can live with it. I looked at plasmas (quite liked a 32" Hitachi but heard stories of poor blacks on ALiS screens ) and LCDs (aren't they awful? ) but my eyes kept coming back to the Panny 28DTX11 when I was in John Lewis. A trip up the road to Selfridges and I had the same experience with the 32" version. It didn't have the eye-popping, retina-singing qualities of the LCDs, but I watch TV in a dimly-lit room. I don't want to wear sunglasses, and I don't want dark scenes to have a blue haze over them! It was the only image in the shop that didn't make everything look like an animation in primary colours (LCD) *OR* flicker like buggery. Even the big Panny plasmas seemed to flicker. I've more or less decided on a 28DTX11 until the flat-panel bods make something watchable but, I need a few things answered from someone that has one (28" or 32"): a) the one in Selfridges had a kind of line flicker (you know when a fine line is only on one interlaced field) even though it was refreshing at 100Hz. The one in JL didn't seem to do this (both on Sky Sports News). Are there two 100Hz modes? Maybe one that just shows each alternate field twice and one that's cleverer? And can you run at 50Hz if you want to? b) are there audio line outputs that are under the influence of the volume control? I'll be routing the audio through Rotel pre/power amps and MS speakers. The hi-fi is not remote controlled you see. c) the image wasn't as bright as the 50Hz 28DTX1 (or was it 28DTM1?) that was next to it, despite contrast set to 100%. Do you find contrast/brightness wanting? Sorry for such a long post but if you're still reading , input would be welcome!
