    I just got a psp, and I was wondering about the LCD displays in many of these hand helds that use them (much like the ipod nano), I thought that LCD's were very sensitive and running/shaking would end up hurting the pixels and "kill" them. Is it actually safe to run or do any kind of physical activity with these products?

    BTW if you don't have a psp, get it, the display is great, i just wish 1.50 firmware had internet browser :(

    Yea I don't really care about the games, its the full screen video with 1.5, friend with 2.0 said it doesn't do fullscreen so I downgraded from 2 to 1.5.

    Why would they remove full-screen functionality? You sure that your friend wasn't just watching a 4:3 movie? (the PSP is 16:9 after-all).

    cool thanks speedy,
    I talked to my friend as well, he didn't mean full screen, he was talking about full res. video with PMP (playstation media player) but I don't think it would be any different from what the mp4 encoders use to the full res he uses. Crazy kids these days..
