    Having read all the excellent info here about the phillips LCD screen (thanks esp to Jimsan and others for their helpful postings) I have a quick query (read noob :D ) about ambilight...

    I am unlikely to be able to wall mount my screen, and where it will stand will be a little way away from the wall. Will this mean that ambilight will effectively be useless, and will this detract any way from the screen image?

    Absolutely not!
    If anything, the Ambilight is even better with the TV away from the wall...

    Agreed. In fact, I usually have the TV at an angle to the wall, maybe 9 inches away at one end and perhaps 15 inches or more from the other and , although one wall is of course a little more brightly illuminated it really doesn't look odd. When in relaxed or dynamic mode(ie varying with the TV image) its amazing how you just don't notice the ambilight- it just somehow enhances the viewing. Plain , unvarying modes are good too- try red when watching a horror film! Or blue for a thriller maybe! I guess blue would be the obvious colour for watching porn but of course I couldn't comment on that!!
