Default Re: Post your HDTV displays here

I still don't have an HDTV of my own, but my brother just bought a 42" Vizio SV420M (120Hz 1080p LCD) and I have to say the picture quality is incredible when connected to a PC via HDMI.

For a $900 TV, it seems like one hell of a deal.

I was really surprised at how clear and readable the text is on a PC at 1920x1080. The backlight is also VERY even and there is hardly any bleeding at all. My friend's Samsung 26" has horrible backlight bleeding.

After seeing this thing I'm really looking forward to getting a good LCD monitor. Once LG or Dell release a 24" 1920x1200 E-IPS I'll be getting one for sure.

EDIT: I almost forgot. I did notice a fair amount of input lag when moving the mouse cursor on this screen. We just browsed the web and played Flatout: Ultimate Carnage so we didn't get into any twitch-based shooters that would make this really noticeable. I'm hoping its just related to some of the frame smoothing or noise reduction settings.

Any ideas on which settings we can adjust to reduce any input or processing lag?
