Well folks I got the 42" Westy and all I can say is DAMN THIS THING IS HUGE! I really should have measured my PC work space before deciding on this beast. Anyway I'm going to play around with it a bit then maybe upload some pics.

I think you're doing a decent job as is. I try to stay away from using the flash if possible and take pictures in a room that is lit up but not extremely bright. If not using the flash you're going to have to pause whatever movie or image you're trying to capture though or it'll be a blurry mess.

BTW nice display.

The thing is that my cheapo digital camera stinks at taking pictures with no flash. You have to hold the camera totally still or else the resulting image is a blur monster. If I use the flash I get a decent pic but I also get the typical huge white spot on the TV screen. Oh well. BTW the Westy is awesome. I have no dead pixels and the banding from the back light is not bad at all. I keep the back light level very low (10 right now) so the banding is barely visable. The Xbox 360 looks amazing. GRAW felt like an entirely new game. No blurring or ghosting at all. Using the Westy as a PC monitor is quite an experience. Reading my emails on a 42" screen is like watching a movie at the IMAX! Text is sharp and colors are vivid. Because of it's size I don't think I'll use the Westy as a PC monitor for to long. I'll most likely migrate it over to the bed or living room and get something smaller for the PC.

Generally for taking pictures of monitors/tvs without flash they recommend having something to set the camera on so you don't have to try to hold it still.

Talking Re: NVNews Widescreen LCD Club (formally DELL thread)

Dual 2007 WFP's

After some friendly heckling that I only had one of these, I decided to double my pleasure. And I must say, there IS great pleasure with 40" of screen in front of me:

Actually he has a 24", so he's probably not jealous.
