i was considering sharp new led along with the LG model i bought. I felt sharp more glossy (more black frame than LG) and LG looked better and went with it. though it was my decision and sales person did not aware of glossy issues.

wmoore: One thing you could try at night is put the light behind the TV. So the light is directed at the ceiling and not directly at the screen.

yes wmoore that would work. but many times you watch tv while doing something else at home feeding a baby,wife cooking etc., and this makes non-practical light behind tv.

looks like i dont have choice but to look for alternative tvs ! hopefully store would take this tv back


How about placing some floor standing lamps by your seats and other  work areas. So the light is directed on the seats and not the TV. If the light behind the TV is bright enough and is focused on the ceiling. It should be bright enough.
Have a play around.


thats what i ended up doing today. with only floor standing lamp switched on, wow ! the picture looks amazing! its pity that i needed to buy extra stuff to watch TV but you learn new things.

you guys are great help, thank you.

I bought a new Sony LED TV on boxing day to replace my 4 (or is it 5?) year old Bravia LCD.  I did all my research and narrowed my selection down to Sony and Samsung.

When I went into the store, I thought I'd humour myself by asking what the difference between the two panels was.  He simply pointed to the Samsungs on the shop wall and asked me to look at the glare from the shiny screens.  Then pointed to the Sony with its matte screen.  He asked if the room I was going to put it in was bright.  There was my decision...

We didn't go into any technical differences, but I knew them anyway from my research.

i mentioned that its bright room but sales person was not fully aware of reflections issues as discussion did not take same route as yours. i did not realize relections will be so strong.
