Each panel has its strengths and weaknesses and some prefer CMOs.
If your panel is performing to your satisfaction I wouldnt worry about it.
If all SQ panels performed alike it might be a different story but like panels from other manufacturers there are also some poor performing SQ panels out there, possibly due to minor flaws, poor quality control, poor assembly or for some other reason.
I was confused with that SN instead of SQ, but I thought it started with S so it must be Samsung.
That was the case in previous years but it looks like Samsung has changed it
this year. Will be interesting to see if other non-Samsung panels are
identified with S.
Its also possible that "tvserviceparts.com" where I got that info has the wrong panel description for SN02. Time will tell
At any rate if SN02 is a Samsung panel, its not a SQ.
I believe there isnt any difference between SQ panels whether they are labelled
SQ01, SQ02 or SQ10, however SQ, SS, SX etc and SN if it proves to be Samsung are all different panels.
