I hate my new TV!
Will I ever be able to be happy with an LCD HDTV? After researching TVs for about a month, we bought a 37" Sharp Aquos this weekend. I never liked the way the LCDs looked because of the strange foreshortening affect that some shows seemed to have and the cut-out like silhouette affect of people on the screen. I admit I am used to regular ole TV with its saturated colors. But my DH was gungho to get one and I caved.
We bring the TV home and hook it up (with the proper cable) and we have Verizon digital FIOS, so I was expecting to be blown away. No such luck. Now, even my DH doesn't like HDTV after watching it for a few shows. He doesn't think the TV is sharp enough. When you look close up at a face, the pixels almost look like an impressionist painting - like daubs of paint. I don't see the pores that I was expecting to see :-). On the other hand, the silhouettes of the people are almost too sharp - they seem to float above the background. It may be something you have to get used to but I'm not sure. I think this might be the nature of the beast.
We are planning to bring it back, but I don't think we will buy another unless what we are experiencing is unusual. Anyone have opinions about this?
