I ordered Syntax Olevia 332H for my coffee room, expecting to get an OK TV for use as a secondary TV with my Panasonic 42PWD8UY plasma. What a disappointment with Syntax. I am running Sony 777ES changer and Motorola Comcast DVR to Autopatch Matrix switcher to both locations. While watch Ice Age opening i can see a squirrel running on a snow on Panny, Syntax will only show a brown thingy moving across blue background.
On syntax 332H i couldn't see a difference between white snow and blue sky !!!!!
I played with all the adjustments but couldn't get an acceptable picture - so i had to send it back, lucky i bought it from retailer who takes returns.
So why did it suck so bad ? And what should i check when shopping for replacement ? Possible candidates Viewsonic 3251, HP LC3760N
Some problems problems:
Syntax's picture looked like it got 256 colors - will HP's "up to 16.7 million colors " be better ? Or there is no LCD that can match panny's "29 billion colors"
Syntax was loosing small details (like nose on family guy) - will good scaler in brand name LCD work better ?
I am looking for relatively small TV that must hang on a wall and not have screen door effect when watched up close.
