Happy new year!!
Got my 151 last night and hooked it up. I have a love/hate relationship with mine.
Couple of things. I do have the dreaded buzz. Mine is not the type you ahve to be 2-3 feet away from. I sit about 10 feet from the screen and I hear it easily, sounds like a refirgerator practically. Im not even exaggerating. I can get it to become inaudible ONLY if I put the power save mode on 2. BUt then the screen seems a little too dim. It is really annoying. I wish mine was only barely audible from the rear, then I could care less, but this is pretty annoying.
The PC input cannot handle the resolution from my computer and it looks like garbage. I know my LCD was in fact a huge computer monitor, but this resolution on the TV strethes everything- it is not clear at all. very fuzzy like an 80's monitor. ho hum.
Some side notes- It seems that unless you actually DISABLE the sensors, that even when not in optimum mode, the seem to be doing something to the picture. Have a look for yourself (i noticed this at night though) I turned it off. I also dont think i am a fan of color space 2, i think one looks alot better- Color space 2 looks washed outin comparison.
72hz mode. (advance) even though the manual states this is not available in 1080P, I swear the pic on bluray gets a little sharper with in on. I will leave it in advance mode....
Do I like the TV? for the most part I do. I understand that this tv needs to be broken in,
and that this is the videophile set to have, But dare I say that I wasnt truly head over heals when I turned this thing on.
The buzzing as I type this is pretty annoying. I know we all have different thrresholds for what is acceptable. And I really do not want to enter the new year with more AV psychotic issues lol, but this buzzing is a real bummer. I dont think ANYONE would come in and not notice. If you want to watch the TV, but with low/moderate sound, you notice it immediately, YOu need to have the whole HT going to not notice it.
I cant believe a product like this is sent out and engineers think that this is okay? within spec? World class TV with some major flaws. ARGH! Does the buzzing aleviate itself over time? Or will it get worse. I sure hope it is not the latter because that would just be horrendous.
I still like the TV, and the pic is still superior to my series 7, but it is definately "different"
Any help with this buzzing
