    Yeah, this is the scanning backlight that we all thought was going to appear on the new 9830 which is due shortly. Philips have seen fit to delay the launch of this technology until next year, rendering the iminent 9830 somewhat impotent.

    So won't that create almost as much visible flicker as a CRT? Or do they have a way of avoiding that?

    You took the words out of my mouth, Lyris. When we were looking at LCD's in the shops, I glanced over at the CRT sets, and the flicker looked awful...

    Once you get used to LCD you don't wanna go back to crt or plasma: flicker all over the place, though you'll get used to it. When i got from home (lcd monitor) to work (crt monitor) and i move my head, i keep seeing the flickering on the sides of the screen, especially the white parts) it's extremely irritating....

    Oh, and this new blacklight, they claim it's against ghosting...well maybe that's still a problem on the old philips lcd's, but not on the newer generation, haven't seen a single ghosting image on my jvc lcd!!

    I didn't mind flicker so much, especially not since I watch so much 60hz stuff - but the scanlines and uneven geometry are what I couldn't get used to on a CRT. Of course, this CRT vs LCD issue's a different thread :)
