What I am increasingly surprised with is how many people are willing to sacrifice what all TVs should provide, a great picture, just to get a large screen size.
I posted in another forum my story. Sadly for me, Dish Network HD,no matter what tried with techs present, looks horrible on 8 LCD / LED TVs I have tried.
Plasma has smoothed out most of the issues but now created a new issue. Basically my room is smalller, can only sit max 8 feet away, I watch both blu ray and day time network HDTV. I would be fine if only watching blue ra,. for $189 a Walmart Quantum View 1080p played movies just as well as Samsung Series 6 $700 tv side by side (as well as both showed the flaws in Dish signal equally) so why keep the $700 TV?)
I really wanted 32" but lcd/led trials showed issues , espeically in faces which looked fake, pixelated around the talking mouths and zoomed out table scenes Also saw it on higher channels that even state they are in HD.
it has been amazing what people are saying they "settle with" It seems like they are trying to be ahead of the curve but I am just about ready to go back to mhy 480i tube tv...
Now Plasma smoothed out all the fake computery faces and things look more natural I have beenable to over come the high gloss, still using less power than the tube TV but to have to sacrifice picture quality by loosing whites on majority white scenes? I will be honest. I honly had this E450 a couple days. I have not tried a blue ray on the 720p and want to see a white scene
When I was trying the the Panasoncic X5 I had scene CBS morning show a snow scene as that was better than the commercial scenes. The TV seemed to react different with actual snow scene than a bright white commercial. I do not know why it looked natural in that scene so want to try to see how it works with snow in movies. Maybe then I could "sacrifice"
