I previously had a Sony 28 inch CRT IDTV and the PQ on Sky and DVD was excellent. We live in a fringe area for digital terestrial reception and although freeview reception was a bit erratic, the PQ was also very good. We decided it was time to upgrade to a larger screen and after trawling the local TV stores and these forums finally decided on a 37 inch LCD. I won't name the make and model here as i don't want to give my views on the product until I fully evaluated it. I did notice in the shops that PQ on LCD was generally worse than my Sony CRT but I assumed that this was due to the sets not being set up correctly. I also undersand that it is generally considered that LCD's can't match a good CRT picture. However after taking delivery of the new LCD set, I am somewhat disapointed. There seem to be two areas of concern. Firstly when using the sets preset settings for colour, contrast, brightness etc, the picture is way too contrasty and bright, and almost unwatchable. However moving on to user defined settings, it seems impossible to get a decent picture. The contrast needs to set very high to get decent blacks which in turn makes the whites much too bright. After some perserverence its possible to get a reasonable picture, then switch to another channel and I have to change the settings again. The second problem is with Sky. The PQ is downright poor in comparison with my previous TV. All moving objects seem to have a haze around them and the overall picture is just disappointing. My questions are: - Am I expecting too much from my LCD in comparison to my Sony CRT? Is Sky generally poor quality on LCD? Is 37" just too large a screen size for LCD - maybe I should have chose plasma? I do have the option to change the set for another model, but how do I know if this would be any better?
