I too got the Dreaded Clouded curse!
I picked up my 42" LK450 yesterday at Visions, and when i had it finally set up i noticed right away that there was a blotchy-like cloud in the upper right corner of the screen whenever the screen would go black. . Plus, i think I got a VA panel. When i got home i noticed that the styrofoam inside the box was broken, plus the sloppy re-taped tape job on the top of the box was a clear indication that this model had been returned previously, which i hadn't noticed until i got home. The guys down at Visions must of thought my brother and I were a couple of clueless punks so they gave us a pre-owned TV. Maybe if I came in with a bow tie and a pipe i may of got a sealed TV PLUS an ISP panel.lol
But at this point i honestly don't care anymore.
What I'm curious about is how you can achieve high Clear Whites
on Expert mode? in the regular modes like Standard, Vivid, Game and the like there is an option to set Clear Whites to either OFF, Low or High....But there isn't that option in the 2 expert modes unless it's part of the color management tint, color, brightness or Contrast system....
Anybody know? I guess I'll toy around with it.
I had the 32" LK450 previously and I never had any clouding, plus 'Middle' temperature gave off more of a colorful punch which i don't quite get with the 42" model for some reason. I stick it on Cool for gaming and it looks fantastic, and 'warm' for film. Anyways, I pretty happy with this TV! If only the motion were better though, because i can't stand it at times during movies and gaming....
