"Amazing! Great!"4.5 starson by wobble
Pros: Superb picture quality
Cons: None - Bought solely on picutre
Summary: I purchased this item based solely on picture presentation. Right now I am not ready to buy the glass components shelving that surrounds the base of the unit to hold all my other components. Out of the box connected to my Directv HD H10 receiver, wide screen viewing is great. Connected to my surround system, everything is superb. I tweaked the contrast down to 50, turned down the color to 50 and sharpness down to o. Set the picture to warm1. Picture has all the normal tones instead of this high contrast glowing picture out of the box. I plan to purchase calibration software to further fine tune. A note to others: Manual says this HDTV may not be compatible with Motorola boxes. I love my 5085W!Updated
This HDTV continues to be a STELLAR performer and have bought a back up lamp that will need replacement in a couple years. I finally got around to mounting my 3-way, 22lb, JBL EC35, center speaker, above the screen. Previuosly I said I was going to purchase CD....etc for finer picture adjustments. Well, I changed to Warm2 from 1 and kept the other settings as is and am happy as a lark with picture quality. We are still awed with picture quality from all sources using HDMI and component inputs!
