The people who post about problems with their displays here may be just a small percentage of people who get displays without problems. I've had my 42ST30 since the end of April and have not had nor found a single problem with it at all. Didn't run any slides, just used DNice's final settings he posted for use if you did run the slides for the display, tweaked a few things and have been enjoying amazing PQ ever since. This is a science forum so many, many people are very particular about their equipment and are always trying to make sure they do everything the can to make sure they are as close to perfection as they can get. This is the first display I did NOT get ISF calibrated since it looks so good the way it is. Very happy I got it for my living room.
