All new HD flat panels are relatively poor performers with SD.
LCD's being worse than plasmas or DLP' with SD.

I think you expected too much. These sets were made for HD with SD not even an after though unfortunately.

The better the display the more flawed SD looks though, double edged sword.
I've owned a plasma from all three of the big three and a few dlp's and an sxrd and none of them can touch an HD-crt.(like the 34xbr910 I have in a bedroom now)
His old rptv was probably a 7" crt.

Well, the top of the line Sammy LCD's and the Pioneer Elites don't look nearly as good, after specific SD calibration, as my sony xbr crt. Not even close ime.
Except for size.

Well, the Sony 34XBR910 is better in three of its' four modes(all but vivid) after calibration with DRC in custom 3 than my Kuro Elite was in either User mode (calibrated for SD) or Pure mode(alibrated for HD)

The Elite was 50", which also shows any flaws/less original information more readily.
The colors are just as good and same with the blacks.....but the image noise, jagged lines, etc. make for a less pleasing image.
