Edit: Found one on display at a Costco. Right out of box with Directv live on it. Football in HD. Pic didn't look so hot. Just blaa. What am I missing here?
Not sure ... out of the box the picture settings Really need a good amount of tweaking so that's a huge part of it .... but other than that my HD on football with Comcast looks great!
Viewing a TV in the store is NEVER what it will be when you get it home ... I could never figure out why they don;t take time to adjust the TV sets they put up ... they are trying to sell the products ... you think they would tweak them even just a tiny bit to help with sales.
Keep in mind this in no few thousand dollar TV set ... it won't look like a Panasonic Plasma or anything .... but holy **** for the price it kills just about anything 2K and below I'm sure ... and I would go out on a limb (speaking with my experience with the 70" Sharp I bought ) as to say it's as good as some in the 2-3K range (minus the Plasmas probably).
I couldn't be happier with the massive amount of money I saved.

There is Zero humming or Buzzing .... it's not normal at all really to get anything like that on any LED TV (only Plasmas really). And no I do all my gaming in my office with my 42" .... and I have only had this TV for the week and watched HD TV on it .... I fired up The Avengers for the first couple minutes just to see how it looked but that was it ... the few minutes I saw there was nothing that didn't look great ... So I would assume the rest of the movie will look just as good.
