Picked up my 47 inch yesterday via Amazon price match at a nearby Best Buy. I have relatively minor bleed compared to many of the photos posted. Have not calibrated any settings beyong doing it by eye, but putting local dimming on high gets rids of the worst of my bleed in the uper left hand corner. Tv is currently doing the software update.
Trying to use the built in YouTube app froze the tv up & I had to turn it off to get it working again. I have a 20mbps fiber optic connection to which the tv wirelessly connected easily; is this typical? Do any of the other web apps function?
Also, I haven't checked out any of my digitized VHS files yet, but the relatively low res dvd rips look fine. Had to screw around with the setting for a while to make OTA look tolerable; everything initially looked like a cheap soap opera, no depth of field, badly and overlit, etc. but it all looks good now. And I like being able to lable the various HDMI ports for what they're connected to. And I'm finding the magic remote much easier to deal with than I'd feared; my LG vhs/dvd player/burner remote controls the basics (on/off, volume, channel, input) and Hippo Lite on my iPhone 4s covers all my needs in regard to the laptop functionality.
