Mass produced products are not exact copies of each other. Each one is different. It's easily proven by reading reviews of the same model, then looking at the 'settings' they lits. That and all of...

Great place to do business except for one thing; YOU pay for return shipping if you don't like the set. For a 60" set delivered in the east coast, price was $135.

I hope you guys know and understand settings for white balance and especially the "Color Space" (CMS) are specific panel dependent. What works for one TV probably won't be proper with another of the...

If you can narrow it down to where the exact problem is, strip all the other boards from the set and sell them for parts on e-bay. With certain models and certain boards, there is a huge...
