    Hi

    What do people think about this Screen?

    I.e. what is the quality like on watching Football? *This is very important*

    Also with DVD Movies, over all is it worth the dosh?

    Any reply would be great as I am looking to buy one in the next week.

    Great set.
    Especially with HDTV.

    You will have to turn the colour down or else the grass will be to green.
    Try it in the shop at -10.

    Just letting you know I have a problem with the plasma at the moment.

    When connecting a PC to the VGA port the frame rate refresh is not always updating on rapid movement screens when watching DVD's or playing PC games on the plasma. Alot of settings have been changed and various PC's tested from a basic laptop all the way to a top spec games PC and still the same problem.

    Installing powerstrip and tweaking the PC graphics setup has also not resolved the problem.

    Have tried various VGA leads and nowt!!

    Tried the same PC's and cables with a 503 Pioneer model and the picture is fine so it might either be my model (going to have more tests on it tomorrow) or the actual range that isn't up to scratch.

    Also when watching channels through a Sky + box there are occasional jagged edges where the screen update is not 100%. Once again this doesn't happen on a 503 model.

    Some people might say that I am being fussy but if you pay the money for their top xde model and it doesn't perform as well as the previous 503 model then the :censored: is going back to the store.

    Just thought I would let you know. I am currently looking into the judder problems at the mo and hopefully these can be resolved tomorrow.
