Okay, either I have a defective television or every other person that left a four and five star review has never seen another HDTV. I bought this television about three hours ago due to an unfortunate accident to my Phillips LCD TV. The Phillips was a great TV and I had every intentiion of buying the exact one. Instead of buying another television exactly like my old one, (for $300 less), I was enticed by the internet readiness and LED technology. This is my first LED and I feel like I'm watching TV with a piece of celaphane in front of my eyes. It gave me the worst headache within minutes of watching it and nothing seems remotely fluid. But my biggest complaint is the color. There's no white! Whites are displayed as egg shell white, yellow, grey or light blue. Mot of the time, there's no distinction between greys and whites. This is especially true in video gaming. I've tried to figure out how to adjust this in the picture settings. Brightness does NOTHING. Now you can choose different settings: standard, vivid, movies, gaming, baseball, football, golf, etc.; whereby the movies is the only one that is tolerable. Okay, next complaint seems trivial but relevant: when I change the channel it should change now, or at least within a fraction of a second; not two seconds later. This is a cool looking TV and displays well in the store. I especially like the thin design and the fact that it is so lightweight; however given the murky picture quality, I feel these advantages are lost. The internet applications are also really cool, however they aren't anything you cant get from an X-Box or Playstaion 3. Needless to say, I'll be packing up the TV in the next few days and taking it back to Wal-Mart, where I'll exchange it for another Phillips LCD.
