Congrats! Try out Buzz settings and see how things look.
Can you elaborate some more.. Not familiar with ATI settings.
I'm watching my Friend's full array LN55A950 again and it still strikes me that despite his TV being 5 years old it still appears to have a higher contrast ratio than the F8000. Blacks are just stupid deep no matter what the program and where on the screen. Text on black backgrounds give a huge sense of pop that I just don't seem to get on my F8000. If I upgrade again before OLED then it'll be to another LED but one with a much much lower black level. I'm so frustrated with the contrast ratio!
Can anyone please give me a little bit of consolation?
For those interested, you can see my "game room / home theater room" --> http://www.avsforum.com/g/a/2333763/gameroom-hometheater/
note: when I watch TV, the room is dark. No lights are on. I have the sofa reclined.
TV is not on during the daytime. Mostly used in the evening for either watching network channels or watching blu ray movie or playing PS4 game.
I currently play "Lego Super Heroes" game with the kids. It is a kid game, but I kid you not, it is a tough hard game.. We are still trying to figure things out. Highly recommended!
My panel is US02.
Nice game room. What night is poker night ? I'm coming over. Personally, TV looks little high to me, I like mine at eye level. But I guess it helps with the sofa reclined.
Thanks. I only watch TV with the sofa reclined. I need my legs extended to watch a long movie. Much more comfortable that way..
The TV is actually positioned correctly. I think the picture doesn't really capture the depth distance properly since I took it from a sitting down position on the sofa. If it is a little bit lower then it will interfere with the poker table..
As for poker, yeah, with the small kids around, we haven't had a poker night in a while.. Kids will do that! lol..
Glad you liked my setup..
i was curious so i played with the different settings. I like movie and I like natural but standard and dynamic was just too bright..
Interesting find.. when I move to natural, I see more grain in the background while in movie mode no grain is seen at all. I would prefer to not see the grain.
For me, from less light to most light it was movie - natural - standard - dynamic.. (followed exactly how the menu had it)..
and yes, I have backlight at 3. I double checked it.
Also the room is dark. No lights on.
Ah, you edited your post, the original "i was curious so i played with the different settings. I like movie and I like natural but standard and dynamic was just too bright..
hmm, i have to investigate natural more now." I have actually thought Natural showed some promise perhaps worth investigating more. And yes, grain is not good.
Standard while it does show contrast better it is just too bright for my eyes. One plus, there is no grain thou!
Dynamic - who ever puts this setting? not even sure why it is an option.. Just terrible. . It is just way out there. lol.
It is on the box. For me, it is next to the serial number details on the box. Also, if you have it on a stand, you can look at the back of the tv. It should be there as well.
Mine is US02.
I agree. The worst setting ever! Man, you have to be blind to use that setting. Everything is terrible!
it is like playing the lottery with edgelit tv's unfortunately.
Thanks for the info! Mine is a TS01.
Is there a thread I can be directed to find out more about this and other panels?
This thread and the Samsung 2013 line thread would be the best bet.

Just curious. What did you do on the iPad for the tv?
I will check it out this evening. Thanks!
Thanks for the update.
I "found" it on the net many years ago. I can't even remember from where. It looked cool to me so thought it would be a cool avatar.
I am at the park and typing on the iPhone. Very hard to do and the thing auto corrects me . I try to catch it but that time I missed it till after it got posted.
