Picture is certainly different -smoother looking with better contrast overall but it's the skin-tones and crispness that are bothering me somewhat.
The new smoothness seems to be taking away some of the crispness that I was used to and liked on the 6420.
Will experiment some more.
Well I've been playing with the settings for several hours and I agree with you Guitar.
A couple of pluses though with the 7000 vs the 6420 are..
1. Std definition TV channels look better though I hardly ever watch Std. anymore.
2. 3D is much improved which is the main reason I got the 7000 upon finding out the 6420 wasn't in Full HD for the 3D.
Bottom line is my old 6420 definitely had a better resolution than this 7000 does for 2D which comprises 95% of my viewing.
I assumed (wrongly?) I'd be getting the same TV resolution as my 6420 but with improved 3D.
FWIW the 7000 has a 301 panel. I notice some clouding and "washed out and hazy" is a good description.
If I had to do it all over again I would have kept the 6420.
Not sure what my options are at this point because I'm not sure if it's a problem with the 7000 or not.
Suggestions? Wonder if I can get my 6420 back..lol
