What An LCD Screen SHOULD Look Like

AVSForum user Irunnoft has sent in photos of his cloudless September-manufactured KDL-40XBR2 set. Here is a prime example of what the Sony LCD displays SHOULD look like. He's taken full screen shots from movies and video game systems (like the PS3), as well as of the screen corners.

Below are some good sample pictures from the above link of the crisp blanks in the XBR line. Note the absence of clouding in this set.

This TV looks great. Mine that I just bought has the cloudiness issue and the shots of this make me want to take mine back for a new one.

Thanks! It's been an ordeal just to get an XBR2 that looks like this. I felt like my part-time job was TV delivery man. I don't live anywhere near the Best Buy I was playing the exchange game with either. I live about 120 miles roundtrip away from the store. So, for me, this was a huge inconvenience.

Anyhow, some of the pictures in this slideshow look very light and washed out. The blacks look very light and gray. I took some of these pictures with the brightness and backlight cranked way up just to show that the backlight was, in fact, even. To show that I was not adjusting the picture to hide clouds. There are, in fact, no clouds on this TV. The pictures that show accurate representations of black are close to what the TV looks like in person. None of the pictures do the actual experience of viewing a cloudless XBR2 panel in person justice.

Can anyone recommend the top performing Remote Management & Monitoring tool for a small IT service company like mine? Does anyone use Kaseya.com or GFI.com? How do they compare to these guys I found recently: N-able N-central configuration management
? What is your best take in cost vs performance among those three? I need a good advice please... Thanks in advance!

Amazing blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
A design like yours with a few simple tweeks would really make my blog jump out.
Please let me know where you got your theme. Kudos

Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the web the simplest thing to be aware of.
I say to you, I certainly get irked while people think about worries that they plainly don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
