The easiest way is to pull up your menu and look at the white lettering, you'll see a red edge along the white letters. In test patterns are you seeing the red edge along all the lines? Christ, I don't want to watch a movie, or any white scenes with red edging.
is the screen that flexable? Geometry problems? How you carrying it when you put it on your stand from the box as to not cause any problems?
I just want to avoid the whole get, return, get return, get return. I want to replace my Mits 55 inch in time for GEARS OF WAR 2, as my 360 Elite is itching to run that HDMI!! My directv hd is using the one DVI line, and I have the Denon 3801 so no HDMI switching. Just waiting for the 3809!!
Thanks, and we should be able to run a poll as to what problems are happening, and who are not having problems!
I was a little bit worried about these things too but in the end there were no issues. I actually transported the T.V. home laying down on it's back (about a 15 mile drive) and it survived it. I think that you are going to see problems if you pull up test images, but remember that movies aren't test images. What you see in a test image, you definitely will NOT notice while watching a movie or even playing a videogame.
When I first hooked up my T.V., the first thing I noticed was that there were convergence issues around white letters. There was mainly a green border on the right side of letters. After tweaking a bit it seems to have gone away completely (but I only saw it before when I was really close to the T.V.)
The screen is flexible. If you push on the bezel you can see the picture move a little bit. If you happen to shake the T.V. a tiny bit (like moving it back a few inches) you can actually see the picture bobble up and down. I don't think this has much effect since the picture doesn't seem to get 'stuck' in a weird position or anything like that. If you really want to, just take the extra few minutes and move it extremely slowly and place it down as if it were extremely fragile, if you are that worried about anything happening to it.
As far as my problems, there are only two that really bug me. First, I think this is because I am sitting too close (max of 7 feet away) but I notice that the middle 1/3 of the screen is brighter than the top and bottom. When there's a white background, the top and bottom appear to be gray. I've messed with the settings a bit and moved the T.V. back a few inches and it lessened, but it's still there. I just have to get used to it
I also notice the rainbow effect a lot in movies. I really don't mind it since it is very minor but I wish I couldn't see it. I think that if I keep tweaking the settings, it will go away a bit but it's really not that big of a problem.
Other than that, this T.V. is perfect. Buy it if you can.
