samsung ln52a630 picture...am I nitpicking?

by withanf1 / March 1, 2009 4:23 AM PST

I recently purchased this t.v. and I'm very happy with it except for one thing -the detail. I have an hd signal and I am using an hdmi cable from my satellite box. The detail on the people isn't what I expected. Their faces look as if they have way too much make-up on and lack the detail that some lesser t.v.'s have. I hate to compare brands here, but I think I have to. I purchased a sony bravia 52s4100 and returned it immediately because I realized how much I needed the 120 Hz. I then purchased this t.v. because it had a matted finish and all the reviews have praised its picture quality. Many reviews claim that the PQ is on par with the xbr4 and 6. Well, I don't know if this is true because the level of detail on the s4100 (which is supposed to be a 'lesser' tv) seems to be noticeably better when it comes to human faces (that's what I use to compare detail). Am I being to picky or do I have a reasonable problem? I have tried messing with the setting and I can't get the detail I was thinking I would have. Does the bravia 52w4100 have better detail than this tv? Thanks and sorry for the long post.

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?
