I'm toying with this screen using my PC over hdmi in ISF Expert 1 and I'm having trouble getting fonts to stay crisp without over-sharpening.
Horizontal sharpness has a noticeable jump in detail between 43 and 44, where it appears that text loses about a pixel's width of blur and becomes sharp. It also appears that test patterns have the least amount of halo effects for the amount of detail.
After going through vertical sharpness dozens of times I can't really hone in on any particular area where I can balance detail and blur. I just gave up and left it at 50.
For both horizontal and vertical it seems like the amount of detail lost under 40 is too large, but anything above it begins to over-sharpen images with very fine detail. Is there any opinions on how to set sharpness for this set? Most settings posted in this thread and the LE5300 thread seem to be between 15 and 65, both of which appear to me as extremes of blur and overly sharpened images and text.

I am looking at either the 47" or 55". Can you customize each input to their own settings or can you only customize the Picture Mode?

Sharpness set at 50 was the trick to get my Mac Mini dialed in with the TV. 50 seems to be the "0". Anything below is -, anything higher is +.
hey i've been browsing and decided to finally join the forums
I just bought an 42LE5400 from Tigerdirect and have been reading about the IPS panels, just wondering if the panels matter that much, since i just ordered it 2 days ago, is this a new panel on their new TVs or what, just worried because it's being delivered the 4th and wondering what i should expect

does it make that big of a difference? (what is the difference too?) or do some VA models just have more problems than the IPS?

Definitely send everything to your receiver and 1 cable to your TV.
The TV is going to downmix everything to 2-channel when you send out of optical audio.

It will work, but what you will need to realize is that the tv will be very tight to the wall. You will need to take into consideration where the connections are in the back of the TV. I have a regular wall mount (not low profile) for my 47" and without 90 degree swiveling HDMI connectors, there would have been no way I could have gotten the HDMI cables into the jacks without them.
I am not sure of your intended setup, but just be aware that you will have little to no room behind the tv once on the wall with a low profile mount.

I want the TV to be as close to the wall as possible, I have some 90 degree adapters on order. So I am aware of this issue. Thanks for the input!
Edit: I also need to have the network hooked up....hmmmm, this might be tougher than I though....any ideas??

The short of it is that my 47LE5400 is consistently 99ms slower than traditional analog monitors.
This isn't that far off from a measurement done by somebody else in that thread who reported the 55LE5400 at 82ms.
I'd appreciate however if somebody else could test it as well to confirm my results as I am in the process of deciding whether or not I should get a different TV.
