Summary: I guess the extra 5 inches made me giddy but this TV is being returned. After a week of tweaking the picture(and using settings recommended online) I just cant get a picture even as close as my 2007 50 inch panasonic plasma... I watch alot of sports(football and hockey mostly) and the picture is just horrible. the 240hz is just not enought to get rid of the judder in fast plays or action scenes in movies.
Summary: Ok, first off I never write reviews, but had to in this case to save anyone for experiencing what I did with this TV. I love my HD movies, and TV shows, but this set just doesn't cut it. I bought the LC-70LE735U 3 days ago because of all the outstanding reviews it had gotten. It was between this and the Panasonic 65" VT30. All I can say is that this is being returned tomorrow. No amount of calibration can do anything IMO to help the picture quality for this videophile.
