    not too long ago I found all info on new tv's and decided for a lcd/led 240hz 60 inch ($1500) I thought the new enhancements might be awesome.
    low and behold everything looks like soap opera. I had to turn off the (film mode) for this tv and I had paid extra to get it. :(

    just letting you know that if your in the market for one of these then you may not want the option of these lcd/led ones - might want to stick to plasma.

    you must have bought the worst LED tv there is. My 40" cost me 1500. It was a samsung. Best 40'' model they had though. Picture on it is PERFECT. I love it. Every TV i saw in LED that was 50'' and above was well above 2500 per unit.

    Amazon.com: Sharp LC60E88UN 60-inch 1080p 240Hz LCD HDTV: Electronics
    Sharp LC60E88UN 60-inch 1080p 240Hz LCD HDTV

    i did find it at a discount but it has since gone back up alittle.

    its a very high rated tv. I found a site that ppl posted best settings for it and tried those. alas I do not like the soap opera look so i have to turn that feature off.

    Did some one bump a post from 5 years ago? My 3 year old Sony xbr4 has a perfect picture. Lcd where bad when they first came out. But that has been a problem for long time. Check out AVS Forum the have a big thread on you set they should be able to help you get the setting right.

    When I was looking for TVs I knew I wanted an LED.. cause they were new and looked awesome and were super slim. I wanted one!

    Well after checking them out, going to a few differnt stores I decided that LED was the absolute best on the market. When you're looking at an panel of about 30 different television. Ranging from plasma, LCD, LED.. you can really tell the LEDs apart. Perfect picture, vibrant colors and the slimness. I'll never go back to anything but LED.

    I have a 5 Series Samsung, and im quiet happy with it. Its not the ultimate TV ill have for the basement, but its got a great pictures, good color. But is only 60hz. But it still looks nice. Though my next will be 240hz for sure, just to do a 5:5 drop with blu-ray, since its 24hz....


    Crazy to think movies are still shot at 24fps. Silly.
