Wanted to upload a few pictures of the pinkish issue I'm having. The color is supposed to be red but as you can see it's pinkish. This is the 2nd set and it's the same as the first with the pinkish issue. I've tried adjusting but as most know with this set you are pretty limited on adjustments.Thinking of returning and just getting my money back and waiting for the next deal. I really wanted to like this set but the color issues are just aggravating between the pinkish issues and the transparent blue/purplish at times issue. Others have mentioned the pinkish and transparent blue/purplish issue too so it's not just my set. Once you see it you will notice it all the time after that.
Looking at your pictures, the problem seems about the same on mine. I haven't had any purple/blue issues that I've noticed. I seem to have found some settings I'm tolerating well but different channels seem to just have different colors and I might just be nitpicking. I'm thinking of giving it another week or so. Maybe it needs some breaking in. The price is what's really keeping me from returning it.
Only if the customers in my CL area are like these! All I got is offerings that were even BELOW my cost! And the majority of calls are asking about how the items work. I'm like "Read the specs on your own. I already list them on my ads. Just read!"
Avoid being racist, there's "certain ethnic" group (with a thick, easily recognizable accent, like Apu from the Simpons) ALWAYS low-balls my ads. I think they're just pissed that they missed the deal and now jealous of my deals.
I see this all the time, then they go and flip it to their cousin for the full $599 price minus the taxes.
Got one of my own for $299, thank you just the same.
You see, what I did was found my local store, paid $299 for it. The first thing I did when I got out to the car was post on this thread, updating my location, the number of TVs left.....as I asked if they had any left. So I grabbed my phone and posted on here, letting others in the area know where more TVs could be found. I then edited the WIKI to reflect my location and price. I also thanked and repped the OP for posting the deal. I like to share the wealth....as it were.
Now you can buy as many as you like and flip them on eBay or CR. That is perfectly fine, it is well within your right. However, it is well within my right to tell you I think you are a POS and I hope you throw out your back while helping one of your victims load the TV you sold them. Causing you to miss work and be forced to sell everything you own, including your personal TV, just to keep your house. And when you finally get back on your feet you go searching for a new TV to replace the one you had so you could stock up on ramen noodles while you were not collecting a paycheck, and you stumble across a few good deals on here. You find a good deal, head to the store, arriving seconds before closing time, jump out of your car....gingerly, afterall you are still nursing a bad back, and walk to the electronics dept. You ask about the TV and the clerk tells you that someone just bought the last 3 of them, but left a number to call to buy one. You decide to walk out to the parking lot and call, hoping against hope that the buyer is a fellow "slickdealer" and will cut you a break. You call and ask what he wants for the TV, and his response is twice what he paid for it. In a rage you throw your cell phone at the ground, throwing out your back again, and the cell phone bounces up under your car, dislodging your fuel filler pipe, destroying your phone and causing all of your gas to leak out, leaving you stranded at a closed store, with no cell phone, no car, and you can barely move because you threw your back out again. Then you finally look up to the sky and think "Why is this happening to me?"....when out of nowhere the manager, in a rush to get home and watch his TV, slams his vehicle into you.
I was on the fence about returning mine and then got around to downloading the AVS HDTV calibration disc (http://www.avsforum.com/t/948496/...alibration good guide on using it is the HDTV calibration video on the disc or http://lifehacker.com/5858625/how...es-or-less ) to work on the picture settings. As noted, there aren't any numerical values but these are the settings I found provided the best picture for my set. I also have the noise filter set to off and color temp normal. With these setting the picture is a lot better than stock and I think we'll hold on to it to use in our room. Hope this helps some of you out!
edit: I'm glad some people are reporting positive results using these settings! However I did want to add that while these worked for my set in my typical lighting conditions (lower light/night viewing) I would highly recommend downloading the disc from the link above and running through the basic calibration yourself. There seems to be a lot of variability with the screens and everyone's lighting conditions will vary making the contrast settings unique to each application. Good Luck!
bet you're the type that yells at the neighborhood kids to stay off your lawn. chill, dude.
Not really. I was only explaining why other people hate those who buy up all the quantities to sell for a profit. Let me give you a more extreme example. Black Friday comes and there are deals people wait in lines for. You get into the store and the employee at the door says that every item in the ad was purchased by several employees, but you can still buy the item from them for a slight markup. The store still gets the sale, the employee gets a little profit, and you still save money from retail price. All good to you still?
It's a bogus thing to do because the person comes onto this site to share with other people the good deal they found. They didn't make the post so one person from each store could buy up all of them

Thank you - will give those settings a try and see how they look.
I went ahead and picked one of these up. But whenever I tap lightly on the screen, the whole thing or area lights up bright. They had one left and I'm thinking about going to get it. Does anyone else have this same problem? I'm thinking there's an issue with the panel that may cause a short life on it.
