My brother got a Sony SDM-HS75P.   When he brought it over to show it to  me, I played a dvd of Attack of the Clones on it.  Wow!  :shock:

The images POPPED off the screen, it was really amazing.  I was really impressed with the depth of the colors and the brightness of the picture. I do see what people have said about LCDs- at anything but their native resolution the image suffers.  I didn't see any ghosting either.

The only negative I could see was that that picture is brighter at the bottom and as you go up it gets slightly darker.  I've read that this is a commonly seen effect, is that right?  I'm talking a very SLIGHT(but I can notice it) variation.

We tried it with the analog and DVI connections.  DVI made a huge difference, we both(and he's not into computers) could clearly see the improvement.

The NEC MultiSync 1970GX is out, apparently, though very hard to find still.  Has anyone seen it in action (or better yet purchased it) or seen a review yet?

Maybe someone can clarify this for me.  I'm looking into the new Viewsonic VX924 (which got an amazing review on Hardware Zone, though I haven't seen a review anywhere else).  It's 4ms response time is looking very nice, indeed.

I called to find out about color depth on the thing and was told it was "6-bit +2."  Now, I'm still fuzzy on the whole LCD color thing.  I understand 6-bit is not the same thing as it used to be on the CRT.  I guess 8 bit on an LCD is like 24 bit.  But what the hell does "6 bit +2" mean?

Also, those of you who are using 6 bit LCDs, is there a lot of dithering going on?
