I have a Sharp Aquos 46 inch LCD (8 months old). In going through the stores I see TV's with a "glossy" screen which make the colors POP. Is that only available on other LCD's or just plasma?

The Sharp I have dos'nt really have that poping effect. Is that the way I have it calibrated?

What year is yours? Mine is 2008 model. I set it to Movie Mode and OPC on. You can adjust the Brightness to a darker look but I just leave it alone. I use the Movie Mode for S-Video, Component and HDMI. Glossy look just give it a nice look laptop had that feature, the computer monitors LCD and now some HDTV. I like the Sharp after getting the image to look right. Now I can enjoy it much better!

WOW, I set it to movie mode and tweaked a bit. Now it's looking amazing. I did leave the opc on. Bright and sharp. It's sort of got that wet glossy look I was looking for. Just tried it in HD. Now I'll look at in Bluray. THANKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
