Is this cloudy mess acceptable for an LED edge lit TV? Vizio 50" M Series. ***Picture***

Did I get a bum Vizio M501d-A2R???


Is this just the crap way that edge lit LCDs look now a days? This is totally unacceptable. Changing the setting won't make it go away. Obviously its most noticible in dark scenes. But even in regular scenes it makes the corners Iook "chalky"

That's my lack of photography skills.

Setting local dimming on and making the set no brighter than a match light doesn't make the screen any more uniform. It just lowers the bloom a bit.

Didn't you already return one set a while back and this is now your second (different brand) set? I would just throw in the towel already. laugh out loud
