I received a new Loewe Vitros from House of Fraser last Tuesday. I bought this model because it has received nothing but praise on this forum and others, after a bitter experience with several Sony KV32FX65s over several months. However there are a few niggles which I hope are not "features". In the order of me noticing them, these are: 1. The picture appears to be slightly brighter vertically in the centre of the screen. Admittedly, this seems to be getting better as the set burns in. 2. The picture is not as sharp as I would expect from this TV. On DVD the sharpness, with Sharpness = 2, is worse than my old Sony. This is particulary noticable on skin tones. Again, this seems to be improving slightly with age. I realise that the tubes of the two models use different technology. 3. When there is no AV signal on an AV channel and the blue screen is shown, the colour is not 100% pure with four large patches of noticable (red?) staining at the top and bottom, approximately 1/4 of the screen width from each side of the screen. 4. The picture size seems very susceptible to dynamic contrast/brightness e.g. 1) If you PIP split the screen in half with teletext in the right half, the teletext noticably moves left and right as the left hand picture changes; 2) In Pan. mode the right edge of the pictures bows when a bright picture is present, but can be perfectly straight at other times; 3) In full screen mode, the ITV1 title screen (with a convenient grid!) gets bigger as the animation kicks in (i.e. I can see the ITV1 logo shift to the right). If these problems weren't there I would definitely say that this is the best 32" TV money can buy - even if it is a lot more money! For £1,500 (with 5 year warranty) I expect it to be perfect. I am seriously thinking of calling the engineers in to recommend a replacement. Has anyone else noticed similar "features"?
