Strength:

Great picture, color, contrast.

Weakness:

BNC connectors should be included with the kit.

The picture is terrific with vivid colors and great contrast. I am using a flat wall mount with the wires hidden in the wall, which adds to the visual appeal. I am very pleased with the performance of the television. Having to make a trip and grab some BNC connectors was a nuisance. Make sure you buy some before you start hooking it up.

Strength:

GREAT VALUE. Awesome blacks, good contrast, lots of connection possibilities.

Weakness:

A litte plane looking, though it wasn't designed for the home.

After all the glowing reviews at AVS Forum, I took the plunge on this display after the sale at Dell. (Don't buy from them, long story.) This display is AWESOME for the price. Very good blacks and contrast. Because it's the commercial, it's very tweakable. Also bought DVI blade for my HD DirecTV receiver and the picture is STUNNING. Even though it is only EDTV, HD looks great. SD DirecTV is also quite good, though it does take some adjustment to get the picture right. I also like the idea that I can use it just as a monitor and let my home theatre take care of the sound.

Strength:

beautiful color, contrast, and clarity. nice frame that will go with any decor (ahem... thumbs-up on the Wife Acceptance Factor)

Weakness:

need to buy: BNC connectors (to use rca cables) and a wall mount.

unbelievable picture and contrast... absolutely beautiful. dark grey frame doesn't take your eye from the picture like a lot of the other ones. it's not hi-def, but it sure as heck looks like one from > 6' away. it has swappable ports so that you can put in a dvi card when you need one... it has component and composite video (among the others) already on board. since it's the business model, get some BNC connectors from partsexpress.com (#090-400, $1.30 ea.) and you are good to go. also, you'll need to mount it on the wall, so look for a good wall mount -- you can get a Peerless PSWT-PAN42 online for $160 delivered.
