Anthony, Garnoch and all the 8000 bro's... You all know I got my set in June with FW 1013.2 and stayed firm in not updating. I was 100% satisfied and loved my settings. Tolerated the minor flashlighting, but had no V issue or clouding to speak of. Well, the worm has turned.
1046.2 is the T*Ts!!!!...The bomb!...."its where the party's at"
I use hdmi direct to tv for bluray, fios and hdvdvd source. Optical out to my soundbar. Test material on bluray was Lawrence of Arabia, Revenge of the Sith, Fifth Element and Casablanca. Fios was CNN and a boatload of channel surfing. Results....Call me crazy but I'm with you guys!!!
-ZERO flashlighting...zero, nada, NONE!
-Blacker blacks in source material as well as letter box bars...I'm convinced this unit is WAY more software based and I'll side with people who think Cinema Black may have been switched on.
-Deeper better colors, especially in detail of red, orange and fuscia garments....OMG...
-CE dimming, much more tamed as I am at 45 brightness and the stars stay pretty bright as credits dissapear in StarWars
I'm rolling in Standard Mode. all 3 hdmi sources individually got the "reset" before tweak city.
-11 for Backlight althiugh this may be dialed vack to 10 cuz panel seems brighter now...
-12-15 for Sharpness although needs observation since the update really sharpened up an already sharp image...wow
-50 Color...amazing and may need to dial back to 48 or 49 after I finish my acid trip with the Sammy
-Dynamic Con, Black tone, Flesh tone, OFF
-Native Color space...love this
-OFF for gamma
-Motion Light ON
-Color Tone is Warm1 but Standard is much richer now as well and it wouldnt surpise me if i switch back and forth...white does look white on my Warm1 when looking at white "BMW's and Benz's"
or white business shirts on CNN and football jersey's
-AMP is on...game effing on babay however, clear is a 2nd choice
-LED Motion OFF
LOVE THIS UPDATE, loved my TV before it, loving it even more after the FW update to 1046.2. Yes, all...the ".2" will show when you check the "Connect with Samsung" window.
Anthony...you called this one spot on!!!
