Firstly Hi all. This is my first post! I have been looking online to no real avail regarding my 435. I have not been at all impressed by the picture quality. It looks grainy and washed out on just about every setting and I was beginging to think I am either completely mad or something is amiss. To my suprise I have found that Feb 2005's What Hi-Fi had similar results with their intial review model a few months back. They have reviewed it again in the Feb edition (With the XDE tuner), given it a 5 star rating and best plasma award! They to state that they cannot understand how the first one was so bad. This is all good and well but I am in the same prediciment only I bought it! Any ideas why this would be the case? In honesty I am not using prog scan dvd players or any other high end equipment. Simply TV, RGB's for both Xbox and PS2 consoles and a few other bits and bobs. Any feedback/ advice would be greatly appreciated! Dave.
