The one thing that has thrown me from day 1 on the Sony is the same issue I had with the Sharp 70" ... GHOSTING / HALO Effect!!!
The Sharp I bought was absolutely horrible.
And when I look at the Sony side by side at Costco running the same feed from DTV on the same station (today it was sportcenter) The Sony had pretty bad halo / ghosting effect around the player when I saw some Hockey footage and what not ... you can just see that pixely halo around the players as they more and football players as they run.
But the Vizio right next it it ... Looked perfect!
That REALLY scares me and has me not even wanting to give it a try. Maybe some settings on the Sony can be adjusted to help with that but if it's anything like the Sharp not a Damn Thing could make it go away.
And I have yet to see ANY of that on basically any Vizio for that matter .... I am a BIG into sports so that ghosting around players would drive me BoNkErS!
The PQ on the Sony looked really goo and vibrant and I have heard so much talk about it having bad viewing angles but they we're almost Exactly the same as the Vizio M to me ... the angles on the Sony IMHO are perfectly fine.
I I hadn't seen that horrible ghosting / halo effect when I saw this TV on the Costco loop a while back ... then again on an DTV HDMI perfect feed doing the same thing .... I may have given it a try ... I think I may just stick with the Vizio .... Worst case scenario maybe exchange it for another one in a month or so to see if I can luck out and get one with a little better panel and less light bleed (knowing my luck ti will be worse ..lol)
