That's nice that they say they'll do that...A week, though? Let's hope they come through.

Paul,

Please keep us informed as to whether MoniVision follows through or not.

In the meantime, what do you guys thinks about these four monitors? Know of anything better right now for presentation purposes?

I took a quick look at the first two on your list, and neither does native 720p, they both do upconverts to 1080i. That's why I went for the Monivision.

Cheers

Paul,

What is the status of your Monision monitor? Did the manufacturer come through for you? What are your thoughts? Would love to know.

Thanks!

Yes they did come through. I had a lot of bad luck with mine, but I think that's just what it was, bad luck. The Monivision people sent repair men out to my house twice to fix it, and the second time replaced everything inside the TV except for the tube.
The only issue I now have is with how to calibrate it correctly, as I found the Digital Video Essentials tape to be absolutely useless without any instructions, which they neglected to include or supply in any way, which is ridiculous.
I also still have an issue with the component inputs on the converter box that is thrown in free with it, which seem to add very faint green vertical bars, which are mainly visible with 1080i input from my JVC 30k deck, but from the camera footage do not seem to be a problem, I may have to ask them for a replacement converter box. Through the VGA inputs, these are not an issue at all.
In general I love the image from this TV and think it is probably the best choice out there for the money, to view the HD10 footage, or DVHS tapes, if you don't want a bigger screen. I would probably also get an HD digital projector if I could afford it, but 10k seems a little much right now for that.

Paul,

I had a G4 last April that just FAILED every day. They replaced EVERYTHING inside except the Super Drive and the power supply, but STILL it failed. It's bad luck. Sent it back to smalldog.com and they gave me credit (which, I'll use to buy a G5, if I ever make any cash with the darn camera).

But, as I've never heard of Monivision, I'm skeptical about it. If they were well-known, I'd chock it up to bad luck, but I won't be buying one anytime soon.

Actually when one considers that only native 720p televisions can display images correctly from the JVC HDV camcorders one has to first consider that there are a lot of variables involved. First of all there is an almost lossless conversion process when you upconvert 720p to 1080i. This is because unlike going from interlace to progressive no deinterlacing or interpolation is required when upconverting progressive to interlace. The only exception is when juddering occurs then there is a reduction in image quality when viewing on a 1080i HDTV but juddering does not really look good on any monitor. Also many so called native 720p LCD televisions do not have a very good refresh rate so they sometimes cannot keep up with fast motion like a 1080i CRT monitor can. Plasmas seem to do a pretty good job but why buy a Plasma and have no money left over for a HDV camera? The best way is to bring your HDV camera to the store and start hooking it up to different kinds of televisions. You may find that the so called incompatible television actually dispalys the best picture quality.
