UE from Woodbury MN. delivered our new, September manuf., 52725 yesterday and all I can say is that it was worth the waiting and reading of the forums. I had already purchased the stand and was just waiting to get the word that they started shipping.
The delivery guys were very helpful when they looked at my "rats nest" in back of the tv and asked if I wanted them to connect it up. They even knew by looking at the mess how all the stuff was running from the Denon reciever. They seemed to enjoy the challenge. And I relented and said YES.
The SW version of the set is ....... V26 004.02
I have not seen any "tilt" issue at all, so that must have gotten fixed with the XX725.
I have noticed that the PQ on local digital is better with the Dish-811 than with the 725's tuner. I still have what seems to be a very dark picture, but this may be fixed with a good calibration. I plan to have that done shortly.
The screen reflectivity issue seems what I expected, and am pleased with the results.
I think the remote that comes with the TV is just adaquate. It has the ability to turn on components, but not to tweak the major settings for them. Maybe I need to study the manual more and get to the meat of the settings.
Keep this forum going, as I have had a great time reading and learning from the "Pro's"
Will keep posting as more experiences happen.
