I can see them but dont care. They don't appear when you are intently watching the show. They usually only appear when you are glancing around.
- scsiraid above in response to RealAudiophobe, RBE
- RealAP, I do see them. scsiraid sees them and UMR, one of the ISF Calibrators also sees them.
To speak for myself, right now, without settting it in stone, I'd say I am leaning towards keeping my 6187. Why? I'm trying to weigh any sort of tolerence I have for noticing RBE and the absolutely beautiful picture I get with it, and this is pre-calibration.
My situation is similar to scsiraid; if you're intently watching a show and keep your eyes on the screen, you don't notice them. I've seen them at various times, rewind what I'm watching, and don't see them again the second time around.
Additionally, I would imagine people around this thread were bored with my posts concerning SD quality b/f I got this set -- when it arrived I was stunned at how good SD came in, even compared to other sets. I don't have to just watch HD with the 6187, b/c the SD is more than satisfactory to me.
I loved my Sony WEGA; if you want something comparable to the 87 series, while maintaining the quality of lets say, the vga's 1080p resolution, you won't be looking at the a2000, you'll have to go up to the XBR2 -- a four figure difference with current prices. That is hard not to notice, but to each his own.
I feel in love with this TV and I am reluctant to give it up. I'm still trying to put it through it's paces. I hope this helped you.
Good luck, RealAudiophobe and thank you scsiraid for your comments, it's helping me with my decision.
