I've had this thing for about 5 weeks, and I'm pretty disappointed...grainy and so contrasty that some scenes are almost unwatchable. I've played with the menus so much that I think I have them all memorized. Sure am glad I saved my old Sony 570; I'm going to try taking this one in for repair (should be under warranty, I hope). I noticed a similar thread a while back: http://www.hometheaterforum.com/htfo...threadid=51407 and I'm starting to believe there was a bad batch of these players. Anyone else having problems like these?
