But none to the degree I'm seeing.
Still, the days of me spending $3,000+ on a television are gone. I knew when plasma went off the map we would suffer for awhile so I'll prolly just make do and ignore the faults the best I can.
Well, I do consider myself an enthusiast, and not a noob, and I have typically done a lot of research into panels, settings, etc. I went from a 58" Samsung plasma (I love and greatly prefer plasma, but can't get the bigger size I want) to the 70" Sharp (really worked to dial the settings, and was quite happy with it) to this Vizio (BIGGER is better!!). That said, I tend to take a general view of the PQ, and do my own "eyeball test"...meaning, does it look good to ME? And man, it sure does...!! And I am keeping an eye out for any obvious flaws, issues, etc, but nothing is jumping out at me. It...just...looks...good!!
And I am actually liking the "Calibrated Dark" setting, even though I know it has extra processing. And my wife LOVES it...can't believe the sharpness and pop...she prefers it over the more "cinema-like" settings that I strive for (that I think is always the goal here, in the forums).
And the SIZE!! I am THRILLED with this thing!!
Anyway, my .02 worth...YMMV...
