So I will say that blooming can be seen but I basically have to construct a situation to see it. I'm not going to keep setting up tough situations but since I do watch from off-axis a lot, I will report if I find "normal" content where the blooming becomes visible. Menu blooming way off-axis -- I personally don't care.
BTW, my main viewing position is about 7.5' from the 52HX909 so it's relatively easy to move a few seats over and be off-axis. (Versus a far back seating position.)
when i see sonyinsider web site i check the Cnet review for Sony High-end HX90x series.
And i shoked when i see the blooming effect.
On the other hand, when you check best HDTVs choosen by Cnet's some of them graded as:
HX909 very good
ok i understand VT is really good TV and it is right to grade as excellent
nothing else to say it.
but when you look at the LE8500, there is something wrong here.
Because LE8500 has horizontal banding issue from suffer FULL LED local dimming.And is realy horibble level that noticed by some users in europe and tester noticed it too.
you can check resources:
avforum reviews+comments and flatpanelHD
(i was going to put links as link here but i cannot allowed:) sorry)
so when we compare tvs which one is best HDTVs_?? Hx909 or LE8500
LE8500 does not deserve more than HX909
for me and as i see it from the queto i can say that HX909 must be better than LE8500.
PLS forgive me if i was rude or wrong
