severe eye strain with new led/lcd tv...
I'm jumping over from one of the gardening forums..I hope someone can help!
A few days ago we purchased a Sony LED/LCD Mod # EX720.. 3D capable 55" TV. It's a beauty and it is in a 15' square room. This is a bright room with many windows but this TV has a matte screen and this helps considerably with the glare issue. We are sitting about 11 to 12 feet from it and both my husband and myself are experiencing eye strain..especially me! It feels like my eyes are being pulled out of my head! We have set the brightness and color settings down as far as we can without compromising the quality of the picture.
At night with no outside light from the windows, I am still experiencing extreme eye strain...
The refresh rate on this TV is 120 and would a highter refresh rate as Plasma TVs have be easier on the eyes? So..would a Plasma TV have been a better choice?
We were also looking at a Samsung Mod # D8000 51" Plasma and at the time we thought the picture wasn't as bright and sharp as the LEDs. Of course I know if you don't have another TV to compare it too, it would have been just fine.
We still have a few weeks to make a decision even though there will be a whopping restocking fee, but I can't worry about that now..I just want to enjoy an HD TV with out a headache! This is our first (if you can believe it) HD TV!!
Also, we are just running off of our local cable company, and have yet to buy a Blueray player or rent a movie...
Thanks, and any thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
