I tend to agree that if you are not satisfied with the pictures it is due to my old 5mp Sony camera and my lack of picture taking ability
. The camera I'm using just can't catch the texture and detail I see in person. Example I can see skin imperfections (pimples, bumps, small facial hair, cuts) on actors, baseball, football players.
I can't get the camera to properly focus.
I stand by my impressions that the color, and black levels, and overall PQ of this set is top notch especially in HD. Source is everything IMO. If you use a good source and proper cabling you will not be disappointed with its output.
Here are few comments and answers to a few question in the previous thread. All my opinion are totally subjective.
1)uzonbize- Don't know if I can test the xbox360 this week, once I test the connections I post my impressions and a few pictures.
a)black levels- are very good, as good as a the samsung hps5073, I can say this because I had this set and used the same sources.
b)I have a PureAV pf60- it measure amps in the amps in front. 4 backlight settings
off=high is the baseline
low=plus there is a .8A drop
med =med there is a 1.2A drop from baseline
high = low 1.8A drop from baseline.
Hope you can understand this
c)Most likely I will get a cable card in 2 weeks, I'm going to be busy the next 2 weeks so I would have no time to test it.
3)Taphill - my designation just describes the cable I am using so DVI-VGA means DVI from x800 to VGA input of set.
Things I can confirm from doug post
- 15 month warranty - special card inside
- User friendly and very comprehensive service menu-
Anyone know what ssc, PC disp ident, Shop mode, DT-RTT are? Looks like I have to find a service guide if I decide to adjust anything?
-also looks like you can adjust movie mode, and the DNIe
4)DVI-HDMI-(delayed) -sorry guys I can't find the cable I used with my old moxi, I'll look again tomorrow, If I can't find it I'll have to order one online, BB is over pricing these cables. Once I get the cables and complete the testing I'll post my findings. Maybe one of the 2 other owners here can perform the test before me? I'll confirm the results.
