I'm looking for a low-mid range panel to replace my old Pio 506HD 50" in the bedroom.. it's on the way out.
I have been looking over the Sony models and found that the one display that comes close to the "look" of plasma (smooth,natural, non-grainy picture) is the EX720, when properly calibrated with brightness and contrast dialed down and the panel taken out of "torch" mode.
I was just wondering whether other owners of the EX720 might have opinions and comments to share in relation to the overall smoothness of the picture quality on the EX720 once it's actually in the home and used for normal DVD viewing, bluray, streaming etc. I've very cognisant of the fact that the stores that have these things on display always chose high quality Bluray content and quite often it's common to get the panel home and see a million flaws that weren't visible in the store.
I am a little fussy on picture quality owing to the fact that my main HT is kitted out with a Pioneer 60" Kuro.. if the EX720 could get even "close" to that once correctly calibrated I'd be happy. I don't expect it to match it..... but LED/LCD scares me a little because I've seen a LOT of panels in the last few weeke and a lot of them look "grainy", "noisy" and "dotty" even when displaying high resolution content (maybe this is because the stores don't calibrate them ?).
Any opinions and experiences would be a great help.
