"Amazing Colors - No IR Problems."4.0 stars
Pros: Amazing Image quality, No problemes whatsoever....
Cons: Haven't had any problems with it except for what happen after the geeksquad came to calibrate tv. Also sound is not the best, but then again, if you're able to buy this TV I'm sure you can pony up for a nice surround sound sytem.
Summary: I purchased this TV around February from BestBuy. Got it up and running with our local Comcast cable company. Never, and I mean never had any problems with the remote control. I then changed to Direct TV (more HD channels) and had no problems either. The colors on this TV are amazing. Blu_Ray Movies on PS3 look sick with the 120hz option turned on. Everything was perfect with this set until Geeksquad came and calibrate it the TV (or at least they tried). Geeksquad came over and the first thing they did was to upgrade the Firmware. Now I had read of different forums that upgrading the firmware would probably degrade the image quality and believe me it did. I don?t' know what the factory firmware was on the TV when I purchased it but Geeksquad upgraded it to FW1005. After this, the picture looked HORRIBLE!!!!!, there was a yellowish tone to it and the image look bland, not crisp and bright like before. Also dark scenes look whitish. I played around with the settings and nothing would help. I had to downgrade my Firmware to FW1003, which seem to fix the problem. I still don?t see the image quality as good as when I got the TV out of the box. Overall if you get a good working set for the LN46A850, with none of those IR bugs mentioned on the different forums, believe me you won?t? regret it. This TV is solid.
