I'm considering purchasing an Aconda 9381. The press reviews have generally been very good and its regard in this forum is also very good. However, after viewing it in a number of show rooms I have some reservations, so I'd be very interested to hear feedback from real owners. I'm no expert on TVs, but I think I know a good picture when I see one. However, I'm moving up from a 4:3 18" TV to a 16:9 32" TV. Maybe my expectations are a bit high. The main use of my new TV will be analogue terestial TV, and later digital terestial TV (when free-to-air STBs are available to buy). My viewing material will be pretty mixed, but will included a fair amount of sport. I'm not likely to be interested in DVD initially. My first concern is regarding the colour setup. I've found it very hard to get a satisfactory colour on the TVs I've demoed. The colour really is too vivid, it doesn't look natural. I've tried the settings suggested by BB (col=25, bri=25, con=40), but its still too vivid. The whites also seem too bright, and so lacking detail. This has been very noticable while watching sport where there are great swathes of colour (rugby pitches, tennis courts, bowling carpets). Secondly, I've found the skin-tone complexions to be quite unnatural, too pale, too pink. In addition faces appear more like masks, than faces; there is a lack of detail, a lack of character. People just look so unreal, semi-animated. Thirdly, the picture looks very soft, sometimes to the point of blurry. The picture is just not as 'crisp' as what I'm used to. Also objects seem to come in and out of 'focus'. Actually I suspect this is due to the camera auto-focus being picked out by the TV. Is that possible ? And sometimes the depth of focus seems quite shallow. Again, is that the TV being extremely 'honest' with the input signal ? Fourthly, I've noticed some judder. Twice with a fairly light object moving across a white background. And also with the ball while watching tennis. The effect can be reduced by turning off DMI, but then the picture stability is slightly reduced. Sometimes the demo TVs have had a poor analogue signal (standard department store setup) but other demos (in smaller showrooms) seem to have a very reasonable signal. Is this TV well suited for handling broadcast signals ? How much do you think my observations might be down to signal strength ? Is the performance with a digital broadcast signal better than an analogue broadcast signal ? Does anyone turn off the DMI processing with broadcast signals ? Any suggestions on picture setup to improve the colour 'balance' ? Ian.
