Maybe a little early, but I know at least one other person that already got this TV, and I have one at home now too.


I have the 60" version.


I'm hoping some of the video guru's out there will get this set, test it, and come up with a great setting that I can use! I'm not great with that kind of stuff, so right now I'm just using the Standard setting, with the backlight all the way up and 120hz on for gaming and sports / off for movies (unless it's a documentary style).

Congrats for your new TV.

Any impressions concerning fast movement in games and also movies in blu-ray?

Any clouds visible in dark scenes?

Looks like there is already a firmware update for this model. Update at your own risk........


Does not look like a major update.


Results For KDL-60EX700

Does your new sony have separate controls for motion blur and dejudder like samsung does? Are you able to turn dejudder off and still get the benefits of 120 hz, or is dejudder blundled with the 120hz like last year?


thanks

I play Modern Warfare 2, and it is absolutely beautiful. I can't discern any "input lag." I'm no professional though.


Blu Ray's are gorgeous as well. The blacks are deep, the whites are bright. I have the settings set to Standard so it hasn't been calibrated, I'm sure there's room for improvement.


I haven't noticed the "clouding" effect, but maybe it's because I'm not looking for it. It doesn't stand out to me.

There isn't any dejudder control. It's only Motionflow control, and it can be set to either Standard, High or Off.

I plan to buy either the 40" EX700 or the NX700. Has anyone seen these side by side? NX700 list is $300 more than the EX700.


Most features are the same except:


ex700

"S-Master" ????

Ambient Sensor

Wireless LAN "Ready"

2 component inputs

HDMI PC Yes

32.9 lbs. w/out pedestal

Presence Sensor


nx700

Deep Black Panel ????

Wireless LAN

"Upward Style" ????

1 component input

HDMI PC Yes (see owner's manual for supported timings) ???

uses 2 watts more power

42.9 lbs. w/out pedestal

Internet widgets

LightSensor Technology


I don't think I care about the internet widgets, but the built in wifi on the NX700 is appealing. Biggest question for me is the "Deep Black Panel" on the NX, and the nearly 10 lb. weight difference. Does anyone know what "Deep Black Panel" is? Could it account for the greater weight?

The suspicion is (although not confirmed) is that the NX series could utilize UV2A panels. If this proves to be true than the extra $300 is well worth it.

Hey CIVIC, would you mind taking an up close pic of your TV and seeing if the pixel structure is similar to this:

Went to Costco today and I saw the Ex701 on display. Same TV as the EX700. It looked very nice. I did see however that the screen does dim when the screen gets dark as is known with Edge lit LED tv's. Also worth noting is the TV cost 200 hundred less at costco then I saw the EX700 price at the Sonystyle store.

"Sony calls the LCD panels used in its HX800 models Deep Black Panel. Its employs a special low reflection non-glare coated panel for improved contrast with minimum glare.

I tried taking pictures, but my camera (Sony DSC-T20), doesn't show that much detail!


Visually looking at it, the pixels do look similar to that picture. Blue, Green, Red rows vertically, small like that. I don't know what else to really look for. The pixels look pretty much the same too.


I did take some pictures of some of the menu settings, and same with the remote but those didn't come out so good. I'll post them in a second - just need to upload them to photobucket.

Crappy remote pics, but I guess you get the idea;





This is the best I could get from my camera of the pixels;




Please don't tell me about my crappy photography skills, unfortunately they didn't teach me that during my finance classes.

No, I meant the television settings.

Well then! You're absolutely right though, it's set at Standard, basically the same way it was out of the box. I think the only thing I did was turn up the backlight.


Just waiting for one of our TV guru's to figure out some good settings.
