60" Model - jagged/pixelly horizontal lines
I've had my 60 inch H7150 TV for a few months now and generally liked it. But one specific thing has been bothering me, and I figure I might as well see if anybody else has the same problem!
On my panel, horizontal lines/gradients with sharp contrast look pixelated: if I look really close, I can see that the red and green subpixels don't seem aligned across columns - they are offset at a subpixel level, and that affects the horizontal line because it's not a straight horizontal line with identical colors by design. That sub-pixel offset might not sound like a lot, but it's noticeable at my viewing distance. Gray lines on the PS4 are a mix of several colored pixels in a crosshatch pattern, instead of the same uniformly gray pixel column after column. Once again, that is noticeable to me - if I stand further away, all colors blend together. But at my viewing distance (with is in the TXH-recommended range) I notice it. I would post pictures, but I haven't used this forum before and I'm not allowed to attach or link to images.
That said: if you know what I'm talking about, the description is probably enough. So, have any owners of the 60" model noticed this, as well? The size is important, because according to Rtings.com, all H7150 models have Samsung panels (so no panel lottery) - EXCEPT for the 60" models, which have Sharp panels (supposedly, Samsung doesn't make even any 60" panels for any series). My TV has a HH01 panel, to be precise. I'm doing a 1-1 1080p pixel mapping with no overscan, have turned off all other potential image "enhancers" (I think) and have calibrated the TV with the Spears & Munsil disc. I have several other Samsung TVs in the office and checked out showfloors as well - I haven't seen the behavior I'm describing here on other TVs (except for the UN60H7150 that I looked at at Best Buy).
Any outside experiences would be appreciated. This isn't killing my enjoyment of the TV. But it's bothersome, anyway.
