My room only has 2 windows with coverings on them and the glare is night and day from the Sony.
Sure the Vizio looks great in the dark, 3d Bluray is awesome, but I want a TV I can watch the rest of the 85% of the time I usually watch TV and movies without seeing myself or my living room in the screen.
I also have pretty noticeable flashlighting and blooming too from the corners and sides of screen that randomly move as bright objects are displayed. And this is after calibration and turning off the extra option stuff. Pretty sure this set is going back to Amazon
I wanted to love it....
I'm in the same boat as you. The flashlighting, DSE, and blooming are worse than average on this TV. I not only have flash lighting on the side but on the bottom near the middle as well ( how does that happen ?). I also have these dark lines on both sides. Do you have these ? The 55" in BB had pretty bad Left and Right edges too and the 60" did look much better, but I assumed since it was the same model that maybe the 55" was a "bad" one.
The 3D is nice, I really do prefer passive over active, overall I'm pleased with the ( not dark room) PQ but this is my 4th set (2Sams, 1 Sony) in the past 3 weeks and this one ranks lowest next to the Sony 802a. I really wanted this to be the one, I really don't want to return another TV, it's starting to get awkward, but gawdamn either I have the worst luck ever, or tv's really suck nowadays.
It seems like people on here don't want to talk about the blooming, flashlighting, or banding. Either that or they all have perfect sets. My luck sucks !
