Cooperjs1 --- Just an up-date. Samsung is reviewing my pictures of the light bleed and stuck pixels, but nothing mentioned or resolved on the AMP issue at all.
As a side note, I read the CNET review of the new ES8000 and the reviewer seems to believe that the when in clear or customer (Judder=0, Blur=10) that the cadence is being properly processed. How is it that this issue may have been solved for the new series not not others? I quote ---
"In terms of motion resolution all modes, with the exception of Off, delivered the full 1,200 lines in my test, and Clear looked the best of the bunch, with a bit less trailing than the rest. To get the full resolution I set Custom's "blur reduction slider" to 10. If you've been paying attention, that means that in Custom, at 0 "judder reduction" and 10 "blur reduction" the UNES8000 actually delivered full motion resolution and correct film cadence, a feat few TVs can match."
This kind of corresponds to the SamyGo forum threat engineer that changed his model to a higher one to apparently solve the problem.
Also, the thread on the ES8000 shows that they are having major issues with the Micro Dimming Ultra and the CE Dimming. So, the ES8000 is not without issues too!
