So I just got a pretty good deal on the Toshiba LED 50 inch for $450. I was thinking the extra 8 inches and the 7 or so years of new technology would result in a better viewing experience, but....I kinda wanna return it.

The blacks are very crushed. So much so that my non picky wife noticed.
We also noticed artifacts (like that blocky digital stuff) when action happens or scenes change quickly.

Are plasmas just THAT much better? I am comparing a cheapo Maxent to a brand name toshiba. I kinda expected hell and a hell and gone better experience. Am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for any assistance you can give me.

I just bought this TV too for $450. I upgraded from a 42" Plasma. I wasn't sure if it was blocky just because the TV was bigger. My dad has a 6 year old 50" Samsung Plasma that was a lot blockier than my 42" is, so I think it could just be the size, since it doesn't happen with bluray at all. As far as the color goes, it's definitely not as nice as the plasma was. I have been playing around with it for days with no luck of making it look as good as the plasma did. I may or may not return it. I really want a 1080p 42" plasma, but they don't seem to exist.
