No 'out of the box' issues so far. It's as quiet as a mouse and watching a sky movie panning shots are so smooth compared to my 2008 Panny Plasma (that's going to take some getting used to) you feel as though you're actually watching through the original camera if that makes sense. Can this be altered?
Keeping picture mode on normal but I have touched up contrast and touched down colour. Brightness and sharpness at half way and colour balance normal. Not too dissimilar to how I like it - not far off Cinema mode.
Next up blu ray viewing.
glad it's looking good out of the box. My 2nd gt50 looked good out of the box and then I watched the football, oh dear
changed some settings and waiting for this Sundays match.
What did you experience with football? Motion seems an issue on mine when I was watching Eng-Bra in itvhd the other day. Using the IFC feature seemed to help though.
The England-Brazil game was probably not a good test, the picture in general was bad that night, try again with a different game. I watch on Sky and the picture on football is great, I rarely watch in HD either because of how good it is!
I use normal factory settings, so the IFC is on max, and I find it works great, I have not once had any issues.
Do you use normal setting on blu rays too?
Yep, I have never changed the settings.

I can't seem to get used to the IFC setting either to min, mid or max. Although I admit motion is sharp on max but for me it introduces an unnatural experience to motion due to the pin sharp images the screen is trying to produce at all times. I guess I prefer (as I've always had) the ever so slight blur in motion shots on normal tv viewing.
I will try it again with sports that may work well.
