Default Is the P3 LCD screen the same as the P2's?

Well I stopped by Best Buy today and got to see a P2 for the first time.

I'm not gonna lie....I was not impressed with it. Now I have heard the P2 and P3 screens are one in the same and the P2 screen I saw today was a huge letdown to me.

The screen was really dark...now I'm not a fan of overly bright screens but this was really dark to the point that it might keep me from buying the P3 if it's the same. In fact the Zune 80 had a much better video quality than the P2 to my eyes.

And yes I jacked up the brightness as much as I could.

I was really dissapointed....so tell me, are the screens the same?

sorry you didn't like the P2's screen. the only things I can think of are that maybe it was just a misused display one, cause people are sometimes really stupid with electronics. The other reason may be that sometimes a mass produced product sometimes has a fault or two.

Either way, the screen on my P2 is crisp even after my friend washed it, and I have heard the P3 screen is better.

This video really nailed it for me....he says that the screen is a lot brighter on the P3.

I've got both a P2 and P3. With the brightness setting the same, and the same photo on each, the P3's color balance is off a bit. The P2's image is white where it should be. The P2 actually looks a little brighter.

The thing you don't know about the videos is if they had the brightness set the same on both.

That's strange....the 2nd video is a comparison of the two and he says the P3 is brighter.

The youtube video makes it look like the P3 is a lot brighter as well.

I would think they would have considered the brightness level but who knows. That said the P2 in that video is how it looked when I saw it compared to the Zune 80.

I'll probably still get the P3 but if the video is anything like I saw on the P2 today it's going back and I'll just pick up the S9.

videos are dark on the P3, even at a level 10 for brightness. You don't notice much until you have the same video playing on another mp3 player or phone right next to it....or you have a movie going that has a lengthy dark section.
