The only worry I really have is the statement that "Motion resolution not brilliant". Hmmm, oh b*ll*x to it, let's go for it.


On the Ambilight TV I just posted, I ended up turning off virtually all of their software tweaks and picture enhancements and got a simply astounding picture in comparison to what it was out of the box with all of their processing shit turned on.

Highly recommend (although it is somewhat tedious but absolutely worth it) with any TV, disabling everything like that and spending some time turning things on and off and making some notes about differences each 'enhancement' really makes when turned on while watching a pure and good HD source with flesh tones and face close ups that you are familiar with and use your judgement. And make a note of all your settings once setup perfectly in case they get wiped for any reason, I speak from bitter experience.

Also, as time passes, make sure to keep an eye out for new posts, reviews and such like appearing on forums, of other peoples' settings setups and try those out.

Well, given it's nearly the World Cup now is the time to pick up some bargains for a new telly.  

Picking it up tomorrow and hopefully installed in time to watch the League One play off final (hope it's better than the Champshionship one but I'm sure DMB won't think so)

Only worry...?  

Against
Motion resolution not brilliant
Flawed Football Mode
Underpowered sonics
Quite costly for non-4k

:) Flawed Football Mode is relating to a mode you chuck the tele in when you're watching footy.  It will then record what it thinks are 'highlights' to your external USB drive so you can just wizz through the highlights after the game.  The issue was that sometimes it thinks the crowd noises are highlights so when the ref blew the whistle at the end the box recorded it as a highlight.

TBH I can do without the football mode as I'll be watching all the games live (and probably some in 3d Smile)
