Are you saying you never looked at this set on display before buying?

Yes I did look at the display in the shop and I could not see anything wrong with the picture on the screen in the shop

If the delivered unit differs.

Then you have them take it back. It's that simple. The goods shown don't match what you received.

Thanks for the advice

So if my tv does develop this clouding or bleeding issue what should I look for or will it be that obvious

The display unit runs many hours a day, 6 or 7 days a week so if there is any development, you would think you would see it in the display models.

But there is a new type of consumer today. They didn't live through the ratty display days of broadcast (480i) days where all displays had snow. These new buyers grew up on pixel perfect computer screens and many are now pushing the makers to the brink as they point out display flaws.

I'm only now trying to find a way to describe this phenom and haven' quite put together the words. But it is interesting to see this new consumer complaining about the screen when the screen is off and no image is displayed. They'll point to the set with the power off and complain about the non-uniform image (which is not there because it is off). I'll turn on the set then the next thing I see if their nose less than an inch from the screen looking at pixels that are not perfect.

I can't see that from 4 feet away so you wonder at times.

But I digress. Best of luck!

Fair enough that's a good explanation I certainly won't be watching the tv from four inches more like 4metres.

But like you said if I notice any differences or lines that shouldn't be there then like you say I was not was the display model was like so I shall be taking it back

I will keep you posted on how the picture looks and if any problems develop

Do you think it's best to leave the picture settings alone or to play around with them

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
