I switched to 720p as oppose to 1080i when watching HD programming from my cable provider; I notice less motion blur and ghosting. Anyone else notice this ?
Actually that's a good question. No, it does not stretch the picture: the monitor has a "Standard" mode that will display a 4:3 picture with black bars on the sides.Hey guys, whats SDTV like on this set?
Is it like horrible since the HD points out the flaws?
Does it stretch the picture weird?
Excuse my noob knowledge of displays. Thanks for your time
LOL and me! I have the same GE fridge, that too on the "wrong" side. Not to mention, SysteX, that my desk and drawers are nearly identical to yours. College furniture... no fantasy.Looks like you and me both need to move the hinge on our minifridges over to the other side
and there appears to be a very tolerable, very small bit of ghosting in certain scenes, could be my eyes still playing tricks on me, or it could actually just be a notice of frames or movement of camera. (When a camera moves in a movie it kinda makes me a little ill)...
SDTV is, well, crappy---but not nearly as crappy as in some LCDs I've seen. Just sit 6-7 feet from it and it looks as it would on your average $200 CRT TV set. Oh, and HBO and Max through analog (480i) cable are very good quality for me.
That is a very good price. Be wary, though, that you will not be able to return it should something be wrong. When you buy large TVs from Newegg (and most other e-tailers), returns are handled by the manufacturer only. Shipping back to Westinghouse at your expenses may be a pain.
Get this. I ordered my westy last saturday from newegg ($99.99 shipping) . Monday AIT picks up the package. AIT front door delivery is a 3-5 day service, so it should be here today correct? I called AIT to get some kind of update since the tracking number shows nothing. They say that a different carrier ( J & P Hall Express) has my package now and gave me their number. I call J & P Hall, and they tell me it is being flown out of L.A. today and should be delivered on tuesday..the only day of the week my house is empty all day and I won't be able to recieve.. I called newegg and they tell me the day AIT picks up the package doesnt count as part of the 3-5 days, but told me if it dosen't arrive by monday they will give me a partial refund for shipping.. I was SO excited about getting this thing today and having the weekend to play with it.. how gay. Thanks AIT
I ordered from J&R and it took 3 days to ship. Although, I'm 2x closer to NYC than you are (I'm in MN). It still wasn't fast enough for me; I love this thing, and I've had it for 6 months!for those of you that ordered at J&R how long did it take for you to get the set? I live in Sacramento fyi. TIA
call newegg. i didnt get my monitor till 11 days after I ordered or 6 business days and I was able to get a credit on the whole shipping cost.
and apparantly AIT contracts out the local delivery service. i had some shipping company called ABCS come and deliver the monitor yesterday.
Congrats on both of your purchases! No, it's not supposed to look that way. How are you connecting your X360? The composite (red/white/yellow) cable does look like crap. If you're using component (blue/green/yellow/white/red), then try upgrading to Monster VGA, as it does make a world of difference.Ok, i finally got the damn thing. Took 9 days from Newegg (3 days my english ass).
Anyway, shes a beauty, PC image quality is amazing so far. I have notinced some VERY minor ghosting, mainly in Counter Strike Source but i am about as obsessive and anal as humans come so dont worry too much. So far for PC use id give it a 10/10
Hooked it up to my HD set top box and watched some Leno and Letterman in 1080i, picture quality was great but i did notice the ghosting some of you had mentioned due to the interlaced image. That being said the picture was still awesome.
Now, heres my problem, the day after i picked it up i hauled ass to Gamestop and snagged a 360 with Gears and Fight Night, i was pissing my pants with excitement all the way home. Hooked her up using the Microsoft vga cable, ran through the Avia calibration and set down to have my very first 360 experience.
I have to say i was disappointed. I dont know if i was expecting too much as id never seen a 360 on a real HD set but the image quality is nowhere near what i was hoping for. Grainy, blurry, ghosting, jaggies everywhere. It almost looks to me like its not even running in HD. Im trying to get hold of the Monster vga cable to see if it makes a difference. Unless im doing summin wrong with the 360 then im seriously bummed about that. I think i have all the settings right, set to 1080p in the dash n all. Tv calibrated with Avia like i said. I was wondering if 360 games are upscaled and if this would cause image quality to suffer as i know it would with a computer signal. Id love some opinions from you Westy having 360 owners out there, hopefully you could tell me im doing summin wrong.
I need to get some new Duracells then i'll post some pics of the set up here too.
