I've had the LHX for a while now and was starting to get a bit bored with the picture quality. The DSE and blooming was always a little annoying, but lately the picture seemed dull, cloudy and just old. I noticed that that it was starting to get a bit of a red/pink tint to the whites as well. We just moved to a new house and set it up in our bedroom so I started fiddling around with the picture. I didn't do any customizing, I just reset it back to the factory THX mode, and then changed color temp to cool, and a few other adjustments. The thing that made the biggest impact was keeping the brightness level low but boosting the back light up to 100. The blacks still stay black as ever but wow does the picture pop now! It's quite beautiful. Gamma still seems good, but I'm not a calibrator so I have no means of testing.

Another interesting bit is that boosting up the back light seemed to take away much of the "dirty screen effect" to my eyes. And no, it's not blindingly bright either. Everything just looks so crisp and clean. I know this is probably frowned upon by enthusiasts, but I also turned on edge enhancement, and found the effect very slight but favorable. Apart from that, all other processing effects are off besides real cinema.

Anyway, the 55LHX lives on! I'm getting a Samsung 51" P5300 for the living room today so I can have my plasma cake too. I hope I don't find the reflective screen too intolerable. I couldn't find the F8500 anywhere for a reasonable price or I'd have gone with that. Looks like the Panny plasmas are all about gone.

CHAD, if you are ever in Oregon and want to calibrate my set let me know!
