My first post. Like to thank everyone who's posted so far in this thread especially cawgijoe and larrimore for the useful information. I had originally ordered the Sceptre but they had oversold them on the website, and got cancelled. I'm glad because this set came in to the B&M store, and thanks to this thread, was convinced to spend the extra $100 for the VX32L. I've had it for 3 days and am very pleased with it. No dead or stuck pixels, no turn on issues, no backlight spill. My previous TV was a Philips flat tube 26" CRT wide screen with external Samsung tuner for OTA HD. Aside from the obvious size difference, I prefer the rendering of the Vizio. It has this 'snap' to it that is very appealing. I get basic Comcast here in Bellingham and the HD channels are unencrypted. Both SD and HD look great. There is no halo, ghosting(which I think are more source dependent) or motion blur. What's most impressive is the absence of jaggies, which really annoy me. I knew going in that I wasn't going to get solid blacks and I guess that it just doesn't annoy me as much as a lot of people. I'm able to get detail in the shadows which surprised me. I hooked up a 6 month old Toshiba laptop in to the RGB input and it looked great. It was chopped off a bit at the top but was able to fix that in the control panel of the laptop. I had no success with a 5 year old iBook.
I started with the settings suggested in this thread. I then adjusted to taste. Here are the settings I came up with for the cable signal that I'm getting.
Color Temp Normal
Black Level Extender Off
Peak White Limiter On
Flesh Tone On
Adaptive Luma On
For its feature set and adjustability, this set is hard to beat for the price. I hope at some point an ISF tech will chime in with some settings that are more instrument based rather than my own perception.
The only glitch I've had with this set is that occasionally it will freeze and nothing short of disconnecting the AC will restore functionality. It seems like its happening less and less.
Overall, I'm extremely happy with this set.
