i was getting alot of that noise people where talking about but after taking off some of the extra stuff in the pro adjust menu the noise went away immedietly. i also noticed that when i take my cable box off of 480p the noise on sd goes way down. some of you probably have certain settings on that shouldnt be on.
i cant understand some of the complaints with this tv. this is by far the best looking picture i have seen. this is the first tv i have seen where you can identify different color tones in peoples faces. the sharpness is outstanding even with the extra sharp settings on. this tv has by far the best dark secen detail i have ever seen, even when compared to crt's. in the darkest scenes i can still make out the area of the face which are in the dark area. sd quality is outstanding in every way.
i have been comparing this tv to my xbr1 which has an outstanding picture and the difference is huge. the only thing my xbr1 does better is sound. i wish this tv had that sound then i could call it the perfect tv of this generation. i cant even imagine how much better the elite models can look because this 5010fd looks amazing and im not even gonna bother with a calibration.
