Well....this tv is still leaving me perplexed about its lack of detail and clarity on my DirecTV. I went and watched a scene on my 5 year old LCD and noticed it to have more details. Specifically in the face. Netflix is really good in details. DirecTV is not. Again, it is like things are just not sharp. Looks dull. I have been able to fix everything on this TV except for this issue. Very weird and disappointing.
I am thinking about returning my F7100 and possibly going with the w850a. One reason I didn't go with it in the first place was the half inch shadows on either side of the screen. I've read about them, seen it first hand a few months ago, and also in some pics here. I'm just wondering if it's present on all screens and does it bother those of you who have the sets. Doesn't seem to, but I think I might be sensitive about it. Since my NX720 died and took over two months for them to tell me it wouldn't be fixed, I'm hesitant to be returning tvs and trying new ones only to have other issues.
