"Great professional-quality 50"" HD Monitor at a really great price.
Pros: Color is outstanding. Black level is inky black. Non-HD DVD's, shown via the separately-purchased HDMI input module, are amazing. I love the way each input has separate memory for settings. (I use HDMI, Component, and VGA inputs for different purposes.) And it looks great over the fileplace - very sleek and modern with the minimal frame.
Cons: The HDMI input, since it's already digital, bypasses the sizing adjustments and all the screen saver options, so I can't use it for normal tv watching without risking permanent side-band artifiacts or suffering through watching stretch-out mode. (But - component input is fine for regular TV anyway.) Also, the 4 preset gamma corrections are barely enough - I'd rather have a slider.
General: I'm very happy with visual quality of this monitor, I'd definitely buy it again. Just remember to buy any extra input blades because you only get one component, one coax, and one vga input standard."
