I purchased a HD-D45 from Comet about 4 weeks ago, and couple of days after purchasing I noticed that when viewing from around a 45 degree angle side on, from either side, there is a white line that appears about 1.5 inches from the bottom of the screen, however, it does depend on what is on the screen, if there is a bright part to the image at the same vertical level, the white line appears and shimmers along the horizontal axis. If viewing the screen straight on, you cannot see it, but from as you move to the left or right, the line becomes more apparent and is a right pain when watching in the dark. I went back to get a replacement thinking a had a faulty model, and received a replacement yesterday, but to only find that the replacement has exactly the same problem. The guys who delivered the new one, asked what was wrong with the old one, I told them, and they said they had swapped quite a few out for people who complained of the same problem. Is this a feature of the Sagem, or is it just that my local store has a dodgy batch. I have also noticed that when people on the TV move their head quite quickly, there is a weird effect on their skin that can only be described as a soft of break up in the colour as if a computer had degraded the bit depth used. Where the is little movement, the picture is amazing, especially on landscapes and wide open spaces, the depth makes you feel you are there. If these problems are common, then I have no choice but to take it back and look at getting a plasma, but comparing the picture to what I have seen on plasmas, I would prefer to have a HD-D45 without these problems. How are all other Sagem owners getting on with their sets and has anyone else experienced these problems.
