Ok, so after some problems with UPS I ended up getting a 37LH30 from NewEgg for $450
Model is 37LH30-UA
Manufacture date: August 2009
can get in all 3 service menus.
My issues are
1) Angles, the screen gets slightly darker from the sides, but standing up or going down it seems to become whiter like its washed out, I thought Super-IPS panels were not supposed to be like this?
2) Blurring, I think the tv is responsible, but I am not sure how to double check. My girlfriend has taken over the tv since I first got it to continue playing Fable 2 and it appears to glitch when running etc. Also QVC HD (free clear qam, best quality channel i get) during quick or even slightly above average motion like a hand moving appears to pixelate.
Is the LGD the best panel I could have gotten and indeed the Super-IPS panel advertised?
The angles I will just have to live with right? It's a property of the panel type?
How can I check the blurring on the tv, and what is the best way to fix it? Which modes are best etc? Right now Fable is set to Game, but QVCHD is just set to tv, its the only option with coax.
Have not checked input lag, will check with COD4 soon and should be getting a PS3 in the near future to check other games etc. Can post watt usage in different energy modes with different settings upon request. They are as accurate as the Kill-A-Watt is, so pretty close
