Okay, first off I gotta say, this PS3 that I just bought, I'm happy with it (I bought Resistance Fall of Man) and I don't see why so many people are bashing it, give it 5-6 months and it will be raping the XBOX360 biggrin.gif

Anyways yea, I was using my PC and my girlfriend wanted to check something on the internet and as she wasn't able to use my PC (since I was installing windows vista) she used the PS3 that I picked up 2 nights ago. I mean its cool and all that you can browse the web on this thing, but when I pick HD (or SD) alot of text on websites looks like shit, even if I turn up the character size...

I'm using a 42" Hitachi Plasma (I forget the model #), its the "Ultravision" ones (guess those are the new ones), downside is it has EVERYTHING except 1080p sad.gif

Thanks for any advice given..

The browser is pretty much useless unless you have a 100 inch screen so you can read the text. Also 1080p won't make a difference in text size since 1080i is the same resolution.

I have installed linux on my ps3 and the text is a little better on firefox, still not great though if you have your plasma running at 1080i turning it to 720p will make the text a little bigger.
