Recently purchased 17r SE (900p), Picture quality bad?

Hey guys, I recently purchased an inspiron 17r SE and am a little curious. The specs stated the screen is HD, however when I watch videos on youtube, netflix or even DVDs I'm extremely underwelmed by the picture quality. Colors are all fuzzy and washed. Watching 720-1080p on this laptop looks very similar to when I watch youtube videos @ 360p on my desktop. Also, the camera quality is even worse! I've tried updating the drivers, but it didn't help at all. Any help?? Is the screen just bad or is something wrong with my new laptop? Please help.

Specs are:

Silver Anodized Aluminum
Intel® Core™ 3rd Generation i7-3630QM Processor
8GB Memory
1TB Hard Drive
DVD/RW
Integrated Webcam 
17.3 Inch HD+ (900p) Truelife WLED Display 
Microsof®t Windows® 8
Nvidia® GeForce® GT 650M 2GB (this is a very strong video card)
Intel® Centrino® Wireless 2230, 2x2 b/g/n + Bluetooth®
