You can check out Blu-ray picture quality here:The New PQ Tier thread for Blu-Ray - Discussion
You shoudn't worry too much about owners who report changes in the picture quality over a couple hundred hours. It's just too hard to evaluate subjective reports. For instance, some folks think that the new Sony Blu-ray players are "softer" than the new Panasonic Blu-ray players. It's possible but very hard to evaluate because both groups of Blu-ray players should be passing film based 1080p through unchanged. If the owner chooses, their player would be deinterlacing 1080i TV sourced Blu-ray disks to 1080p which might make a difference, but probably shouldn't.
I'm not super picky or a pro by any imagination, altho I'm quit technical in certain area, I'm just a typical end customer when it comes to critiquing PQ.
So if my eyes tells me it seems fuzz/blurry, then it must be (even my wife point this out to me). Like I told my wife, I'm super easy on food, so if I ever said a food is bad, trust me, it is bad....in that sense about TV.
Anyway, it was on default THX cinema or THX bright room. Did not change any setting at all. I will try for a few days, if PQ don't get sharper, then I have no choice but to return it.
I will see if I can post some pictures...
