The closer you sit to the TV the most off center washing out you get.
I sit about 6-7 feet away from the 52" set and I can easily see the difference when I move out to the most left/right side of a couch.
Yup, I think alot of the debate here is subjective.
Nothing of ANY hard data has been posted as of yet.
What is expected and what is excepted varies from person to person.
One may see my LCD's viewing angles and say "looks great to me" while another may not.
I have the 55" mounted on my bedroom wall. (kids are sad.....lol....too bad for them)
I sit (well...laid down..lol) at the appropriate distance from the 55" at around 13.5 feet from it. Dead Center.
However, even from an acceptable distance, the Washout is horrid. I have a queen size bed. If lay in the middle of the bed its great. To sit to the right or left of center on my bed from
13.5 feet away there is STILL a noticeable degradation in PQ.
I have a Technician coming to my home on December 24th to take a look at my LN55640B with a CN01 panel.
I have no way to return it from where i bought it, (Leons in Canada) so I have to use the manufactures warranty. I've only had it 2 weeks.
I'm going to question him on the viewing angles. I'm going to request politely I want a replacement for an LN55B640 SQ## panel.
I will report back here what he finds and what I can gleen from his perspective.
I really am trying to be as bipartisan as I can about this panel debate.
Hopefully with the tools he brings along, we can get some real data to report.
Assuming of course he's open and honest with me.
