Hey all.

I got a KDL-46S4100 the other day at best buy. Blu-ray movies look awesome. Some HD broadcasts (dish) look awesome. Other looks questionable. Things look grainy sometimes.

And I feel like motion, especially slower movement rather than quick, blurs images. Is this because of the "8 ms response time"? (Anyone know what the V series response time is? I can't seem to find it.)

I'm wondering, is this because I chose the entry level S series? Is the V series better in picture quality or is it mainly menu features or what?

We sit about 8 feet away. I'm wondering if I'd be better off and/or happier if I swapped my 46" S series for a 42" V, which is about the same price. Better PQ? or maybe even just dropping in size a bit will crisp things up a bit.

Also, will geek squad calibration do much for these tv's? (as in, more than what I can do with a calibration dvd with red/blue/green filters.)

Thanks for any input.

Thanks for the reply!

So, I will take what you're saying as: The picture quality of the 42" V will be more enjoyable than that of the 46" S, and the sacrifice in size will be worth it.

Appreciate it!

If anyone else wants to chime in, word. I'm debating swapping tonight with the one store in my area that has it in stock. They are holding it for me through the day.

Also, I'm debating canceling the geek squad service if I determine it's not worth it over what I can do with the dvd, so thoughts on that welcome too.

Thanks again
