    uterly fantastic in my opinion.

    i use mine for both cinema and gaming.

    just switch the picture mode to normal for a very vibrant picture - switch it to dynamic if you want to burn your retinas.

    dynamic is too bright for me.

    If it is just for gaming i would say it isnt the best.

    The panasonic produces a very smooth, very film like image compared to other lcd's, thus in my expericance games look good yes but that smoothness makes it harder for me to play first person shooters on the PC, console games are fine as you dont have to see as far into the distance like a FPS.

    If you can go for a demonstration of this and any other PJ's on your shortlist. It's the only way to get a better idea how they compare with different material and the image that you prefer. :)

    i use mine for my PS3 and xbox360.

    again games look amazimg - very sharp and crisp images.

    blue ray and HD-DVD is also incredible.

    i watched Unforgiven last night on HD-DVD - even though its an oldish film watching it in hi-def was like watching a different film to when i watched it on DVD and at the cinema.

    even my girlfriend is impressed

    I'm 360, I would be interested to know if there is a difference in video quality on this projector between PS3 and 360 at this size and definition. I'm hopelessly addicted to COD 3 war online. Whats your GT Mr Ev ?

    my GT is sunshineWELLY.

    i will have to keep an eye out for you.

    everyone on my current friends list does not paly COD3 anymore whilst is also still love the game.

    to me the image from the xbox360 and PS3 is identical.

    i have played virtua tennis on the 360 at 1080P - and also ridge racer at 1080p on the ps3. no differnces to my eyes anyway.

    there is a slight improvement with bluerays over 1080p to HD-Dvds at 1080P (through my xbox hd player)
