    Anyone else notice how blurry the on-screen menus of some tv's can look. I know this shouldnt really be an issue when looking for a tv, but i have definitely found it off putting on several occasions in the shops. You'd think that a signal coming off a chip, directly to the display, would look a lot better than some do. :confused:

    Usually the case on CRTs because they are being overdriven into something called 'blooming'. A commonplace occurrence on CRTs. Usually because shops (and default factory) settings have the brightness and contrast way way higher than the tube can actually cope with.
