i understand its the nature of these TVs - i have a older XBR 4 lcd and i have to say - i dont really have that problem of bleeding - screen is uniform - some very slight clouding on a black screen - and blacks are not really dark - but at least its even and bleeding is at a minimal -
i am not expecting this set to have plasma blacks etc. - but dont want excessive black light bleeding -
do you have your set Calibrated or did you make adjustments etc. -
scale from 1 to 10 -- for the back light - what setting do you have yours ?
thanks for the input -
Well I have the E50 model. I don't know if this is the same one you have, although companies tend to use the same screens.
My bleeding occurs mostly on the lower left side and a bit on the bottom right. Like I said its not too bad. I can bare with it but some people just cant stand it. Like you mentioned plasmas do a much better job than LCDs and LEDs. But plasmas for me suffer from a much more terrible issue... they have highly reflected screens and that really bugs me because Im not a vampire and I don't want to have me room completely dark just to watch tv.
And yes I did do a calibration but I did also mess around with settings to adjust them a bit better to my liking. I would like point out that this bleeding problem will not get solved with a calibration. Calibration will only better the picture as a whole. The bleeding problem is due to the LEDs behind the screen.
The backlight on the E50 goes from 0 to 100. I posted I had mine at 60 but Ive recently switched to 40 which minimizes the bleeding a bit. Try to mess around with a balance between the brightness and the backlight.
If youre not happy with the tv you should definitely exchange it. I had an LG before this one and I tried to bare with it for a week before I just returned it. If you do... I'd recommend a BACKLIT LED not an EDGELIT LED.
