    Taking the advice of members on this board, I plan on buying either one of these to optimize my HT system. Which one is better?...TIA

    For best results you should use both.
    I use Avia for picture control adjustments (Contrast, Brightness etc.).
    Also use Avia for geometry and screen adjustments - especially overscan. Video Essentials' overscan test pattern is flawed.
    On the other hand, use Video Essentials for grayscale adjustments, as Avia's test patterns are flawed for this adjustment.

    Buy AVIA now, wait for the new VE that is coming out in early 2002 (and is priced more reasonably than its predecessors).
