When Enterprise first aired, wasn't everyone complaining that the NX-01 and it's bridge looked too advanced to be 90 years before TOS, considering the technology used in TOS had knobs and buttons and stuff. As I recall it was a big uproar amongst the die hard TOS fans.
I don't think there was quite that
big of an uproar about the bridge and its knobs and buttons. I think a number of people had commented that the back area of it could have been closed off as a separate room and asked why did Archer have a ready room when Kirk didn't (the general feeling being that the producers were just used to having one on TNG, DS9*
, and VOY, IIRC).
I do recall that some thought the bridge displays were more overdone
than anything else, but by the fourth season not only were they more toned down but had adopted a color scheme closer to that of TOS.
*Technically, a ready room is just a captain's office and Sisko did have one on Deep Space Nine, even if it wasn't called that.
