I'm very happy with the 4661F as it's a significant step up from the older 4695. Initially I wasn't a big fan of the rounded bezel design but it grows on you. Definately no regrets on making the upgrade. So far I see no problems with banding, clouding, flash-lighting, or dead pixels. The colors looks rich and the improved contrast ratio gives everything more depth. QAM tuner and Just Scan are both present as well as a boat load of new menu options including incremental back light control. SD viewing is pretty subpar, fuzzy, grainy and full of artifacts, worse then my Olevia 542i but of course SD viewing isn't what I bought this TV for. Another cool feature I noticed was that when you hit the source button, it will only cycle through the sources that are currently in use so no more having to click through blank screens. Also the bottom hidden speakers aren't the greatest but they get the job done. How is sound suppose to travel across the room if the speakers are pointed downwards? So onward with the inputs. I've tested every connection available to me as you can see below. I initially had problems with the 4661f recognizing the VGA signal from the xbox360 but this is easily fixed by reseting the 360 to it's default resolution with component then reconnect the VGA and it will recognize the signal.Xbox 360: How to reset the display settings back to default:
1. Remove any discs from the disc tray.
2. Turn the console off.
3. Turn the console on.
4. As the console starts, press and hold the Y button, and then pull the right trigger at the same time.
5. The Xbox Dashboard resets the display settings to the default settings, and then automatically restarts the console3 week review:
I've had the 4661f for about 3 weeks now and used it daily for 7-8 hours, looking for any issues that may warrant a return to CC before the 30 days. So far the only real issue I've encountered is the hand shaking between the tv and the PS3 during games, not during Blu Ray playback. I'm using cheap monoprice HDMI 1.2 cables so that may be it. Viewing HD content through cable/QAM is crystal clear, xbox360 through component has some overscan but nothing major but I'm using VGA 1080p so everything is ok. However, I didn't notice any overscan with the Wii through component. PS3 gaming loses signal about every 25 minutes with the occasional green screen but Blu Ray playback has been razor sharp and flawless. Blacks are blacks with good detail and no crush. Colors are good with no push that I can see and there are no flash lighting, mura effect or dead pixels. Has anyone else been able to verify that the cables are a cause for HDMI/signal loss? I really don't want to return this TV.
