Great After Xmas Price for an Akai Plasma


This monitor (not a TV as there is no internal tuner) is an EXCELLENT value for the $900 I paid on 12/26/06.

Easy to set up and use.

Sensitive screen and scratches easily.

New Model - 1024 x 768 with 10000:1 Contrast


Saw an ad for this monitor in a local Fry's insert - for $999! After a quick check of (mostly) favorable reviews, I went to the store before work and saw the floor model.

Amazing SD TV via Dish receiver S-Video connection ; Remote seems to have been improved ; Black levels appear quite good. Absolutely incredible price/performance - paid $999.00

Lingering ghosts of bright areas when scenes go black - noticable only in very dark scenes in dark viewing conditions) ; Remote codes unknown to my Dish universal remote ; Less than 1024x1024 resolution
