Horrible back light bleeding.

Lights On, Amazon
19 November 2011
  • Summary: Bright images and scenes on the TV look great and have lots of detail. I was perfectly happy with this TV until I watched a movie in a dark room and a dark scene came onto the screen. The TV's economy side showed it's ugly face with an extreme amount of back light bleeding extending nearly 1/3 of the way across the screen on both the left and the right sides going all the way from the top to the bottom.

tuner is not as good as the series 4 TV's

  • Summary: I also have this TV in the series 4 models so I expected good things from this series 5 model. The picture quality for mpeg-4 digital reception (Irish channels) and analogue (from my old sky decoder box) is very very good. I expected this one to be the same but alas it is not. You do have to adjust the settings to improve the picture - I found movie mode to be the best - all others are poor.

Screen scrambles when I adjust volume - anyone else??

  • Summary: Bought the product in Sep 2010. Easy to set up and looked great. However after 2-3 days everytime I adjusted volume the symbol on the left hand side disappeared on the screen and the screen scrambles. Therefore I sent it back to Amazon who sent out replacement. Was suppose to arrive on Fri but did not arrive till the following Monday - annoying as I had taken the day off work. Anyway was glad to have a replacment as I did like the look of the TV.
