*READ BEFORE YOU CONSIDER THIS TV* Returned due to light bleed issue
11 December 2011
Summary: Stunning looking set to have in your lounge. Really good picture for general viewing / gaming. HOWEVER......when watching at night with low lighting this TV has a serious light bleed issue. Specifically when watching two blurays this weekend that have the normal black bands on the top and bottom of the screen you can clearly see ghostly white light clouding from the top of the TV into the picture, it also carries into the picture in dark scenes of a film.
Summary: I had this for over a month now. Very happy with the quality of the picture and the sound. I have a few issues I wanted to share with all - there are some problems with the HD channels, but to be fair i think this is probably a signal issue from the HD freeview. Other channels are fine - My main problem is the compatibility issues. I elected to pay extra for some of the new features that I'm not able to benefit from e.g.
Summary: Great TV in all but one respect - really poor light bleed along the bottom of the screen when sitting in normal viewing position. Much worse when viewed from the side or above. I put up with it for 3-4 days, but decided I couldn't live with it - returns process now underway. Glad I didn't opt for a replacement unit, looking at the other reviews!
