Lg-incredibly excellent on hd sports and anything with bright screens.Reddish color especially on dark screens.not dark enough blacks.cinemazoom makes it fill more screen(cut more bottom than top adjusted).Not good on dark movies and when there is black bars.Super smooth on hd.

Traded for

Samsung-incredible blacks,bit more black crush than lg.looks Better than lg on sd unfortunately no adjustable cinemazoom like lg.Better sound than lg,has equalizer.Got good colors after adjusting although bit of red push in skin tones.looks like my old Sony CRT.Not as Prominent picture as
lg on hd.More stuttering and not as smooth as lg.

Is there a way to adjust the screen position in samsung service mode?

What are you trying to adjust for the black bars on sd content?

I want the video to fill as much of the screen as possible.

Other thing on lg I didn't really like was the dirty screen effect.Dirty screen more noticable on angle.The samsung has better viewing angles.It's a sq01 panel.

There should be a way, like the ratio button on the LK520 remote...I can only assume Samsung would have this feature.

Are you saying your D630 has no dirty screen effect?

read the owner's manual, the picture size function is what you want and some modes of it allow you to set position

no need to access service menu, such a control doesn't even exist there in the first place

any vertical banding on that sq01 panel? I had the same panel version on a D550 and it had vertical banding that was present on uniform gray and white screens

it also created a DSE effect of sorts when the camera panned

My(briefly) D550 also had vertical bands. And both LK450 VAs.

I've also seen Sony EX500(in store) with the exact same vertical banding.

Could it be related to *VA technology ?

My LGs were A-MVA.

Sony uses Samsung panels, i think.

On lg I used cinema zoom(which let you zoom it bigger AND you could move it up and down which I did so the TOP of the picture is NOT as cut off).

Lg was ips.Sammy does fade lighter softer when off angle(Sammy),but its better than lg.If there is dirty screen it's not as bad.

Sammy The zoom1 and 2 just stretch it up and down,which make people 10 ft tall.

I haven't noticed any vertical banding,but have some little sparkling white dots on some dark scenes.(think that is not normal).The jittery screen I'm not liking.i don't remember the lg doing it but I only owned it 1 month.

Could be wrong but the Sam might be a bit clearer on NON moving image,but a moving image like a hockey game the lg is smoother and clearer at least on he channels.

As for the black crush, you might be able to reduce that by making sure the "black tone" option is set to off.

Not sure if there is something broke on my Sammy,as the lg is a lot clearer on hd,but Sammy better on sd).

an amazing tv with below average black level(lk520) vs a very good solid tv with a great black level(d630).Of course after properly calibrated.
