Just bought the 42" D30 version of this TV, can anyone tell me how to access the ISFccc settings? Or are the "Pro settings" what I am looking for?
EDIT: Pics added as per request. March 2011 build date.
Pretty darn good horizontal viewing angles as pictured (Vertical viewing angles are definitely not as good)
With the backlight on 100, you can see the bright corners are rather obvious.
My crappy camera does not show it, but in total darkness, you can still see bright corners at 50 backlight :
It is still there but is no longer bothersome for me at 25 backlight (sorry my camera sucks, I need a DSLR):
For those returning their TVs over this... I think it will be hard to get a "perfect" one. I didn't buy this TV looking for top picture quality. I needed a TV with good viewing angles, decent motion clarity, low input lag, and safe to use as a PC monitor. If you need better image quality, buy a plasma, or consider an overpriced full array LED-LCD with 256+ zone local dimming.
P.S. This TV surprised me. While obviously not lag-free, I was able to play timing-sensitive PS2 games with results better than any other HDTV I've tried (e.g. Beatmania IIDX and SFIII 3rd Strike were fairly playable... not suitable for tournament use or anything but still very playable.)
Another thing I noticed with this TV is while watching cable TV... Video seems ahead of audio. You need a keen eye to notice this, it is maybe only 2 frames off. Maybe because I am using component cables instead of HDMI? or is the audio delayed by the broadcasters to compensate for the average lag of todays TVs?
Okay, I tried again... I increased the ISO sensitivity to 200 to get these. They really exaggerate the backlight issue, but it helps show the uniformity...
25 backlight (very watchable at this lower backlight setting... this is one bright TV)
Took this at 100ISO, -1 exposure. TV in Cinema mode, 25 backlight I believe. This is what it looks like in practice. Pretty good picture quality. I will say though that this TV is extremely unforgiving with low quality sources.
