Despite what I said last spring I've warmed up to the panel. It's a cheaper variant of IPS but it's still IPS. I've come to appreciate the strengths of that technology over time compared to the VA mode panels. If they elected to replace my set and I got one with the cheap MVA panel some people have been seeing I'd be quite upset. Since it is the display controller that failed I'm wondering if my set will come back with a Trident HiDTV Pro LX in it like it has now or if I'll be stuck with the new cheaper processor they switched to. I guess time will tell.
Oy...yeah, Westy really screwed the pooch with the changes to this set, they were building a decent reputation with the LVM line, then came the TX failures, the long wait for firmware, and then they started throwing cheaper panels and components in without changing the model number. I have to say, as happy as I am with my set, especially for the price, I don't see my next one being a Westy. Better sets have become affordable. I might trust them if I was looking for a PC monitor or a small panel for a spare room, but for anything 37" and above, I think I'd look elsewhere now. Which is really a shame.
