Any "Westinghouse LVM-37w3se" owners here that upgraded to the LD450? Or perhaps variations of that model, like the LVM-W4207?
I know the Westy 37 has bad blacks, but how do they compare to the LD450? Are they better or worse? How about shadow detail?
I already have the KDL-40EX400 as well as the LN40C500 sitting in my desk, waiting for me to make a choice. The EX400 fails 4:4:4 big time, although everything else is rather impressive. The C500 passes 4:4:4, but locks Sharpness at "20" and Color at "50" (looks extremely dull, and still not as sharp as my Westy 37). They both have major drawbacks, which pretty much leaves me with the LD450 as my only choice.
-I read that "Game Mode" supports 4:4:4, but does it block any features like the C500 does? Or are all the picture adjustments still available?
-Also, for people who upgraded, is the LD450 just as sharp/clear with text as the Westinghouse?
-Lastly, is there any difference between sizes? I'm going for either the 37" or the 42". I know is harder to keep viewing angles in larger screens, because one needs to sit farther away, but is there ANY other difference? Is the Lag on the 42" greater than the 37"?
Ok, thanks a lot, and hopefully you guys can help me. I need to make a choice fast, before the return window runs out on the EX400 and the C500.
