Because I can't take it.


I just purchased a Panasonic PT-61LCX66 LCD RPTV and the Silk Screen is really bad. I was watching Hockey and the sparkelys were everywhere, it made the image lose it's 3-Dimensional-ness. When watching World Trade Center, when they went to an all white screen there is a line of it going through the middle.


I don't notice it bad in Best Buy but when I bring the thing home.. man.


Also, what Calibration software should I use for and LCD RPTV? The blacks are screwed up, really blue.

Yes. The Panasonic RP LCD sets do seem to have noticeably more SSE than other RP sets like the Samsung and Mitsubishi DLPs and Sony SXRDs. As you've noticed, SSE is more evident in the middle of the screen when viewed from directly in front.

Its the nature of the beast. SSE is caused by way the screens are constructed to produce a bright picture with a wide viewing angle and very little glare. OTOH, plasma displays suffer from reflections and maybe burn-in depending how you treat it.

Yea, I'll take reflections any day over SSE. You cannot do anything about SSE, but you CAN close drapes and utilize plasma perfectly.

Is there a general consensus on which of the DLP and LCOS tv brands have the least amount of SSE?


Has anyone viewed the various different brands extensively and determined which brand is superior in NOT seeing SSE?


I'm getting the impression from reading that the JVC's are the worst?

I do not see any SSE on my Samsung HLS DLP set.

My JVC definitely shows the sse but the Sonys I looked at did also. I don't remember noticing it on the Samsung but I did see the rainbows. Others have commented that the see it on their Samsung sets. No rear projections set is immune to it if you are prone to seeing it.

Its on a, say, black and white shirt, or black hair sprinkled grey, it looks like the whites are moving, or the black is overlapping. It's a grainy effect. Really only see it on Vivid mode, but I do see it.

Did a little eyeball comparison of SSE on JVC, Samsung and Sony SXRD's today at Best Buy. Looks like the JVC's are worst followed by Samsung which is better and the Sony, where I could barely see it. Gotta check the Mits's soon.


Anyone else do something similar?


Unfortunately I've got a new JVC 52" 1080p...who knew?

Once I knew it was there, I find it hard not to look for it, damn it!

I could exchange for a Samsung 50 or Sony 50, but I hate giving up those extra 2" for the same price point.


Wish I wasn't such a shtickler for perfection!

Yea thats sse. Most noticable on sky backrounds and white scenes like hockey or sking. The blue blacks also are a eyesore and cant be improved unless you use a nd filter.
