So I've had 4 TV's in the last 2 weeks, my girlfriend thinks I'm going insane! lol. I had picked up a un40eh5050 and a un40es6150 from costco. Both had dead pixels. Both returned, re-bought the ES6150 again. Clouding was too hard to deal with, back it went and this weekend went to Best Buy and purchased a eh6000 ts02 from Best Buy. By the way Best Buy just changed their return policy from 30 to 15 days!
Anyways, this TV seems to be the best so far. Before even turning on the TV (so this might not be a valid test) I loosened all 4 screws on the back corners about a quarter turn. I have to report that I have almost no vignetting in the corners.
Still trying to find settings that I'm happy with, as I'm not 100% sold just yet. My old TV that this is replacing is a samsung that had ccfl backlightning and I feel like the whites were nicer than this TV. The whites on the EH6000 seem more grey then white. I have my black light set to 12 and contrast 96 with brightness at 44 and gamma 0. Is this just a function of LED tv's? I'm using movie mode since I dont want the picture auto dimming. I have to say the dark knight looks great on this TV via my PS3.
One more thing I also noticed is I see more artifacts. I went from a 32" (720) to this 40" 1080p. Is the higher resolution and larger screen just making it more obvious now? I also read that my firmware version of 1018 is not actually correct and I should upgrade it to 1012?
Thanks for everyone's input in this thread.
