The first thread was a public service announcement but then i realized new Sharps were coming out soon and i wanted to see if it was just an anomaly on the LE835u or if it will affect the 2012 Sharps.

Showing you "natural motion" also relies on visual trickery.
I have the moral courage to tell you that things you see at ridiculously close range or in still frames might be interesting or important, but might well have no effect on picture quality whatsoever.
Viewing it at a distance of 1 to 2 feet was just the distance i recommended to see it easily
for a quick answer
. I saw it clearly at around one meter which was my normal viewing distance a the back of my desk and from that distance it totally made an otherwise excellent panel unusable in all 2D modes. I originally understated the severity of the problem to ease people minds which was a mistake. A larger version of this photo was set to "fit" on the desktop. All of the lights were smugged and little square windows were turned into triangles. Shallow gradients of color, like the sky were not bad but any strong color difference forming a line, even a short 2 pixel
line formed by a tiny light far in the distance for example had turned into a triangular mess.
Its not a pixel problem, its a processing problem. To solve it, i simply had to enable a 3D resolution of 1080p at 24hz via Nvidias control panel. This didn't make the display 3D as there was no actual 3D or image doubling going on, but the display put up a message that it was receiving a 3D signal, thus it was clearly a different processing mode or something. This mode resulted in a quite stunning 2D picture and i even considering using it despite having to endure the huge amount of input lag brought on by that mode.
