Hopefully this is will resolve the issue.

Thanks for the response G_Sup

Glad I could help! Please follow up once it's done and tell me if you could see any burn evidence inside the cable. It's small but fairly easy to see against the white plastic of the cable.

Vizio also has the "R" - Reference Series (4K/UHD) with FALD - Full Array Local Dimming. In this case, 384 zones.

I looked at their website and it said the screen sizes are 120" and 65" - - which is kind of weird to only have these two options.

The biggest TV I can fit in my man cave is 100" - which would retire my projector if I could get the right picture at the right price point.

I saw the LG 9300 OLED TV this past weekend. Absolutely stunning - - but the cost and image retention problems are a concern. Plus - it's a new technology.

I've been very happy with my Sammy set. I get deep, dark blacks - - maybe a combination of my Darbee Darblet with the Movie settings. There are occasions where I can see vertical banding but it really isn't noticeable in 90% of my viewing (never with Bluray.) I've looked at other sets at Costco and Best Buy and I really do not see anything better than what I have, save for OLED (picture wise) and 4K content - - which there isn't any.

I'm at least three years away from buying anything and hopefully by then, this will have sorted it self out.

Option wise - I see the following:

  1. UHD/4K - but no content. Bandwidth issues - - maybe HEVC will solve this but I think this technology is five years away from being close to mainstream.
  2. OLED - stone cold picture, gorgeous. But - - expensive and not without flaws. Plus - - a new technology.
  3. FALD - Full Array Local Dimming. I think this will be the most viable option, cost wise and PQ wise. It takes proven LCD/LED technology a step further and will provide the biggest bang for the buck - - IMHO.

Please let us know how your new Vizio compares, picture wise, to your Sammy set.


Best - Rico.
