    I have seen this plasma at £3269. It has DVI input.
    As it is a comercial model intended for PC input, will this plasma work with DVD players with DVI output, eg Denon DV-2910?
    Will I be satisfied?
    Anyone has experience in this combination?
    You can add an expansion slot at £279 that takes component video in.

    The DVI input is not HDCP compliant so will not work with DVI DVD players as only unencrpyted disc would be playable.

    That said it is an excellent panel and cna produce very good results especially if used in conjunction with an external scaler.

    Do a search and you will find a fair few happy owners but it has not been as popular as the panny's.

    Your best bet is to try and see the thing in action.

    Cheers, Lee

    Indeed as Lee said. Get a DVD player, mod it for SDI output and use an SDI capable scaler and you are laughing. Looks nice.
