Most people purchasing a new tv complain that cinema or movie mode is too dim and the colours aren't strong enough, but if you watch exclusively in cinema mode for two weeks, the majority would prefer the cinema picture and not go back to vivid or standard. The torch mode you see at most retailers is very offensive to my eyes.
Totally agree. I just helped a buddy "tweak" his 46" set the other day as all he did was, as most non-techies due
, pull it out of the box and fire it up. I was over there watching a Blue Jays game and I tried to hold my tongue as long as I could, but I just couldn't stand it anymore. I made a simple comment of, "...don't those uniform colours and grass (well fake grass at the Skydome) look fake to you?" He looked like his puzzled pug for a second and then said, "Yeah, they do." I then suggested movie mode. He said it was to dim. I said turn the backlight up. So he did, he was happy, I was happy, and the world seemed right again
. The picture was still a bit too bright for my tastes, but at least the colours and shadow detail came ALIVE!!!
tech junkie, but recently it's been junkie tech
