Don't know if anybody else has noticed this and maybe it could be killed with more refined calibration? Just my $.02......
I was watching Pawn Stars last night & noticed the black shirts that everybody wears in the shop were a little noisy. (Could be my TW source is crappy too) So, I decided to see if I could help that a bit. In fact, when I turned noise reduction from "off" to "low" it did just the trick!! PQ was still about 99% of before, but the noise reduction was just what the doctor ordered.
I'm using Resultz settings from page 16 of this thread w/ minor tweaks:
Picture Mode - Custom
BackLight - +70 <----Resultz at 77 but I have mine at 70 to mellow a tad.
Brightness - +50
Contrast - +50
Color - +45
Tint - 0
Sharpness - +3 <------ I'm at 4 cuz it's right where I can't discern which = good to me.
Color Temperature - Custom <--- I'm ok w/ gains but clueless on offsets so just using Resultz settings.
Gain - Red - +125
Gain - Green - +120
Gain - Blue - +120
Red Offset - +128
Green Offset - +128
Blue Offset - +128
Smooth Motion - Off
Real Cinema Mode - SMOOTH
Noise Reduction - LOW <---- I actually didn't notice he's got it on LOW here too.
Color Enhancement - Normal <---- I have mine off to keep colors a little less torchy, imho.Adaptive LUMA - Off
Film Mode - AUTO
Smart Dimming - ON
Ambient Light Sensor - Off
I just came across this TV today on VIZIO's web site and started doing some research on it. Does anyone know if a professional review has ever been done? From what I can tell it has been out for over a year. I get Home Theater but don't remember reading a review. The last local dimming LED VIZIO review I read got a poor rating on black levels but I have no clue what the model was. CNET doesn't even appear to have a review.
Also, it looks like many other brands are transitioning models right now. Will this TV be phased out of a new model in the coming months? I just ask because, I was hoping to get a Panasonic 58VT25 for this same price point on closeout. That didn't work so well. The only places that have it in stock are the ones that were selling it for twice the going price. Has anyone ever seen this next to or have had experience with it and a Sony XBR-52HX909? I know the Sony was normaly twice as much and smaller but its prices are falling pretty fast. I actually seen it for only $99 more on line today.
Also as of 4/2/2011 what is the latest on the Power Off issue?
Thanks! Sorry for the long post!
