In reading these forums it seems that the universal opinion is to disable VSM (velocity scan modulation) whenever possible. I know that VSM is supposed to sharpen the edges on images, and to my thinking a sharper image is a better image (within reason) no? I've found a description of VSM online as the following -"this TV feature creates sharp transitions between objects on your TV screen and improves overall clarity. If you can imagine a big letter E in white on a totally black screen, a set with V-Scan will show crisp, sharp edges on the letter while a set without V-scan will gradually transition from black to gray to white with a much softer look." Now, I understand the whole 'faithfully recreating images' philosophy, and if something is artificially sharpened when it shouldn't be, then that's not good, but...my question is: on the whole, why is leaving VSM on such a bad thing? Can anyone provide an example of when VSM has caused a problem?
