They will be here Tuesday.
I guess they knew right away from my description what is wrong with my tv since they are ordering parts befor they even see it.
Anyone who has followed your saga over these last several weeks in this forum knows that no matter what, you will never be satisfied with your set. You are not unique, and no I am not picking on you or singling you out. Like many others you are so caught up with the posts in here about problems (real or perceived) to the extent that you already have returned a perfectly good set. One that you were told (and finally realized) was a cable provider problem (source issue) and not the TV’s. However, you were convinced otherwise. That return was partially a result of the crap posted in here about S, A, & C panels and other such nonsense that permeates these threads and has a way of becoming reality for some.
Your replacement now has “issues” that your first set supposedly did not have. The amazing part is they weren't problems you had experienced with the first set you returned. Not surprisingly they are “problems” that you have seen posted in here while you were awaiting the delivery of your replacement. As a matter of fact you were posting your worries about getting a replacement with these other problems before you even got your replacement. Your replacement arrives and lo and behold it has all the issues you were posting "worries" about that you read about in here. The predictable result in your eyes is your replacement TV is another “lemon”. The end result-----you are a victim more of your imagination than anything else.
You and many others in here will disagree, but that is my observation. That’s fine but with the exception of a few legitimate issues some may have that are truly related to their TV it is the case. I have been lurking in these “owner threads” long enough to see this phenomenon become a trait for many. Some people with a set that looks perfectly fine to them, who come here looking for calibration tips or just out of curiosity, begin reading about all these “problems” and before you know it they are seeing the very same problems. Funny how that happens now isn’t it. What follows is they can’t enjoy what was at first to them a great set, which now has all these “issues” that were never noticed before. All of a sudden they have the wrong panel or bad firmware etc. They are never again happy.
Heck there is at least one poster in here who is on his third TV, and a second panel on that set as well, who is still reporting the same problems and looking to exchange it for another TV. Odds are he will always see the same “issues” regardless of how many TV’s he goes through, and will never be happy with what is probably an excellent product to anyone else. For most of the world that would seem odd, but for the anal bunch that feed off each other's perceptions in here it seems perfectly normal.
Such is the nature of these types of forums. You just can’t take what is in here too serious. Frankly some people should never come here and they would be perfectly happy and enjoy their viewing experience. I hang out in here to try to help on occassion, and also to pick-up on a good tip every now and then about improving viewing; but also for a good laugh over what is posted. It is what it is. http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...=#post15734454
