Toshiba 27WLT56 - opinions?

I posted a similar thread in the Xbox 360 forum as I was hoping for feedback on its performance with the 360... however I guess the same feedback on general performance with 720p would be a good indicator... anyway here is my Q:

Hi all
In my hunt for a native 1280by720 panel I stumbled across the Toshiba 27WLT56 - this a native 1280by720 screen with integrated freeview.
This screen should not be confused with the Toshib 27WL56P which is very different. Main differences between WLT56 and WL56P are:

WLT has 1280by720 res
WL has 1366by768 res

WLT has no image processing
WL has Toshiba Active Vision

WLT has DVI and VGA
WL has HDMI and VGA

Anyway, I am very close to buying this screen (available for around £470 to £550) and just wondered if people had any direct feedback on the TV with 720 p sources (e.g. HTPC and 360)

In Theory the PQ for 720p should be top dollar as the screen does not scale the 720p output and FULLY supports 720p over component (needs component to VGA converter) & DVI or 1280by720 resolution if connected by VGA

So any opinions?

It says the same in my 37WLT58 book, but I input 1360x768 with no problems and so does just about everyone on this forum.

Me too I have the 37WLT58 too and use it with the Xbox 360 connected via VGA... only looking at other screens because teh missus complains I hog the main television :rolleyes:

I reckon the 27WLT56 will give me the best 360 option as it is true native 720p so I can avoid any scaling :thumbsup:
