    Got it from NexNix as I have used them before and ordered it before the av-sales offer.

    Tweak the bejesus out of it. You'll probably be a little dissapointed with the picture quality initially but colour and detail retrieval are good : intensity range still not as good as an analogue CRT...you will see banding.

    Don't sit too close.

    Taz, I am tempted by this plasma screen (indeedy I've been lurking for a while round this forum, much to my other half's annoyance!) Are you any less disappointed now?

    Additional parts I have bought; BNC component board, Mark Grant cable, Ixos scart for consoles, JS RGB to VGA convertor, High quality scart and VGA leads.

    Hope that helsp.
