    I didn't say Plasma was shit for whites i just said it wasn't as good, LED backlit tvs are the best for whites.

    EDIT: Well the 100hz is supposed to smooth out motion but i didnt really see a difference.

    LED backlights aren't as good for color though, and where did you get LCD's for color anyway, plasma's are capable of showing many times the colors of an LCD

    IF we are getting pedantic, real true RGB LED can offer a better colour accuracy. I thought that LCD was always good for bright colours where as Plasma was for blacks. Well if someone else feels free to tell me otherwise.

    i think it's all being pedantic anyway, i've seen so many LCD's and plasma's i now think the quality's more down to the individual display then the type or anything, and the set up is also very important, i was making my point from a purely technical point of view

    only LED display we have is on a laptop and it's a nice display but for some reason the color is a really coldish blue compared to the traditional LCD's i have

    IMO any display is fine for any use, as long as you take user error out of the equation and have it set up properly. And I mean properly. Every new TV I get I spend at least 45 minutes sorting out the colour, trying all different films and games during the day, then again at night. I'll end up with 2 sets of settings for my TV, one for day and one for night.

    I just had a big razz. Was fun. I've been ram-raiding :p
    Got a couple of mates local to me so I've joined their group.

    Just a slang word for a go, a turn. I think you might call it a shot? I'm not very cultured :laugh:

    since it worked when my PSP got water in it i've put the oven on 's' and i'm hoping it'll dry the phone out

    EDIT:Just looked at the paperwork, the warranty covers accidental, liquid and malicious damage so i should have no problems sending it back if it doesn't work

    yes if you want it to be faster and have better battery life, no if you have better things to spend the money on

    I thought "shot" was a standard Scottish slang for a turn. A Scottish guy who used to lodge at my old house always used to say "Gis a shot" when me and my brothers were playing SNES etc.

    Yup, I'm waiting to see the results. It worked for his PSP so um yea why not :laugh:

    yeah it worked, turned it up onto gas 1 cause i got bored

    and no, it's not technically oven baked, as the lowest setting on mine is something like 90

    i put it in the grill, and turn the oven below (they're the same unit), and wait until the phone gets to the point where you can't hold it for very long

    it appears to of worked, there's no water inside the screen now and it's been out of the oven after and hour or so, and has been balanced on top of one of my inlet fans on my PC for a while now, thinking of putting the battery back in, the warranty says you have to notify them within 48 hours so i've only got till tommorow morning now

    and oven baking it probably won't do anything, people here do their graphics cards all the time

    You're very brave! Well done for doing it without melting your phone.

    By the way, there's no screen in a graphics card :p The screen is the first part that would die if you proper baked your phone.

    the screen was water cooled so there's not much risk there :laugh:

    i'm not brave, i just don't like waiting for these things to dry out, i can't stand not knowing whether they're working or not

    Next time put it in the microwave and it will be "done" in seconds lol. Seriously there is a difference between taking a chance on something that is pure dead and just drying something out. Most of the time if a card or something wont work then if it still doesn't work you didn't loose out.

    The other option of course is get grain of rice and let the rice absorb all the water from the phone.
