KDL55NX720 Picture Quality

by EA67 / December 8, 2011 1:51 PM PST

<div id="post_message_21320184">I bought the KDL55NX720 recently and have had it
set up for about 10 days. I also have a KDL52W4100. I am not as impressed with
the NX720 as I was with the W4100. I see a lot of motion blur and pixelation. I
have played with the settings and color but still am not impressed. Every now
and then I will get an extemely good picture much better than the W4100 but it
is not consistent at all. I have Verizon Fios, with a Sony receiver and Blue Ray
player, with a pair of Vienna Acoustics Mozart Grand and the Maestro grand, also
a sub woofer (Name?) . Is there any advice anybody can offer. I bought this TV
based on price and reviews, CNET has it as an editors pick.

I do remember
experiencing the same thing with the W4100 but it evenyually went away? Do these
TV's require any kind of break in period? Any advice on settings (Motion Flow)
is appreciated.

I am not as AV savvy as most on here, but


Currently the set is on the factory
"Vivid" setting

Every year TVs get brighter, and seem to add more processing to make the TV look sharper and smother in motion, the problem is, all these things show pixalation* and add more crap to the picture....

Good news is, you can fix it.... try turning all the motion, color, or enhancements of and turn down the sharpness and contrast on the TV and see what you think, it may look softer on edges and less colorful but everything should look alot better....

Sony or Samsung

Hey is the Sony working? I'm in a sort of dilemma right now because I keep going back and forward btw this model and the Samsung UND6400. The only reason that I want to buy the Sony is of because of the review on CNET but I was always looking to buy the Samsung beccause it was my favorite. Now that my wife want it to get it to me on christmas I'm undiced. Any Help guys?
