My first flat screen TV - not impressed
on 23 May 2013
I've had an olde worlde Sony TV for 13 years and following the death of my DVD player I decided to get a new everything so I could watch HD. I'm not a 'hang your TV on the wall' kind of person so I wanted a 32" and this seemed the best available. I'm really disappointed with the picture though. I was setting the colours using the BBC News channel (because you can see a person for longer to tweak skin tones) and even with the best picture I could get everyone still looks very airbrushed with little detail in their hair etc. Could this be a signal stength issue? There is no paper manual with this TV and the one that comes on the TV itself is worse than useless. There's no way to flick through and see what each and every setting is (or even a list of what settings are available). I can't get the HD channels - I've got the best aerial going and a top of the range signal booster - I think it may be down to the ancient wall cable. So I will get a TV person in to look at that. If that helps with the 'airbrushing' I will update my review.
