Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Samsung PS43E450 43-inch Widescreen HD Ready Plasma TV with Freeview (discontinued by manufacturer) (Electronics)
I bought this TV because of the good reviews so i dont know whether i had a duff one or not.I just could,nt get the picture right, even with cell light,brightness and contrast set to max the screen looked dark and the Whites looked muddy. In movie and dynamic mode it made it look worse. I ran Gladiator through the DVD and the opening scenes where they are all in the wood i could barely see. When Maximus went into the sunlit arena the picture was good but when he was in the tunnel waiting the picture was way too dark to see anything. This happened in all programs and not just on DVD. Tried adjusting all the other settings ,gamma,Red Green and Blue tint etc etc and nothing made a lot of difference.I was really looking forward to owning this TV as it was going to replace my Sony Trinitron CRT. I could have ordered another one to see if it was any better but to be honest its put me off of buying it now. As always Amazon were as good as ever.
I found the sound to be very good with plenty of adjustment to suit all tastes.
Hope this review helps instead of confusing
