Just gotta make sure you calibrate it right. And it seems like this is where LK450/520 shines the most... its ability to change so many settings while not sacrificing input lag (at least I haven't noticed while playing fast-paced games such as Black Ops).
My 47" LK520 is coming in next week. I'll keep you guys updated.
Please do (about the 47LK520).
I've received the replacement before they even came to get the old one, so that's a good thing.
The bad thing is, I have the same problem: faint vertical lines/bands that are visible when the picture is moving. (look a few posts above to see directions to a similar problem). Another way of describing the problem: it's like the tv is dirty.
I haven't finished calibrating it yet (using the avsforum dvd), but I'm doubtful calibrating will resolve the issue.
I'm afraid this issue isn't really an issue: the tv is just made that way. Unfortunately, it looks like I'm sensitive to it. Though it's odd that no one is mentioning the problem.
The picture is otherwise very good, but this banding issue is very, very distracting, and I won't be able to get past it, unless the calibration proves me wrong.
Good thing is I have 90 days from the date of purchase to get a full refund, including shipping, so I can afford to wait and tinker with it as much as I can.
I'll keep you posted. In any case, I could post my calibrated settings before sending it back.
