I've been wanting to say this and now seems to be the opportune moment to do it. I had the "Surround" problem, so upgrading was not really an option for me. Now, I don't work for Samsung and I don't claim to have any special knowledge, but I am an EE and I do know that not every change made in many firmware updates is documented in the public release info. When I upgraded to v2003.1 all of my controls, just like everyone else's, were reset to the factory defaults contained in the new firmware. I simply started a recalibration from scratch...Yes, my settings are now quite different from what they were with the 1003.M version. Having said that, however, it doesn't imply that my image is any better, or any worse, than it was with the earlier version. It is just calibrated on a different baseline that Samsung has coded into the firmware update. Prior to the update my display looked pretty good with the CNet settings (plus very minor tweaking) and now it looks, IMHO, even better with my new settings.
You know, the old adage "If it ain't broke, don't fix it." still holds true I suppose. If you are happy with the image you're getting with the 1003.M version and you're not having other issues, then leave it alone. If, however, you do upgrade...for whatever reason...then do a scratch recal and unless the new firmware has extended an error beyond the range of your set's particular controls, then why on earth would you want to downgrade the firmware?
I'm sorry, but unless something is preventing you from achieving an accurate set up, why would you not want the latest...and probably best...version of your set's firmware in place?
