Hi I've had this plasma for about 3 days now and I'm still not sure about it. The model on display in the store was the D4 and that is what I thought I had bought,the supplier sent the V4,the store informed me that they had been sent the D4 by mistake but Samsung could not supply this T.V because it was exclusive to Dixons/Comet,However having read previous threads on this T.V on here I know that they are virtually the same Plasma...so I accepted the set BUT on the understanding that I could return it if not completely satisfied with it.....so much for the back story. Here are my thoughts on the T.V Contrast range = v.good Brightness = v.good (deep blacks) Sharpness = good range Colour = v.good (strong solid colours) Sound = good So far so good,now on to the picture quality.Fed an RGB signal via SKY + the PQ goes from not too bad to awfull! the main problem by far is the terrible banding? effect.I beleive this is the correct word to describe the effect when you get shades of light or colour that instead of gradually changing shades (like in real life) you get distinct lines of shade/colour,almost like it's been painted on!.Now not being an expert on plasma telly's I don't know if this is a common problem with the technology,a problem with Samsung plasma's or just a fault with mine?which leads me to my question; Is it possible to get rid of the banding effect either by changing leads (I'm gonna try component leads at the weekend) or some other way? I feel that if this problem could be cured the picture would be great (it is better on dvd) I don't think sky is entirely to blame although PQ on some channels are bad. So can I fix it or does it go back? Ideas?
