First, forgive me b/c Im not really a AV guru and probably dont have as good an eye as most of you. I just happened to get very lucky. I stumbled across this thread looking for reviews AFTER I purchased the TV. I honestly knew nothing about it when I bought it. I looked up the model, saw it retailed for 3k-4k and said for 900, done deal. Pics are below, but as you can see they are really bad. I just moved into this house and the basement (tv room) has terrible lighting...which isnt necessarily a bad thing for watching TV, but Its bad for taking pics. The pics are from my iphone and the copy of Elysium isnt that great. If you can give me some tips on how to properly take pics of a TV, what content I should use and what you are looking for, I would be happy to do so.
To answer some questions. Would I be happy if I paid 3k... I dont think I would spend 3K on a TV...just not in my budget at this point my life. I was originally looking at the 65" Vizio M series and the Samsung UN60F7500AFXZA - basically something in the 1800-2000 range. The black levels are great. Sometimes, I feel like maybe its a little too black. That might just have to do with calibrating the tv or making some minor adjustments. So far, I basically plugged it and and thats it. As for screen uniformity (I had to look up what this was) I do notice some backlight bleeding, but its not terrible. Im also watching basically in the pitch black, so it really stands out. I have zero issues with the curve. In fact its awesome. Looking straight on, you dont notice the curve at all, however it really does help the viewing angles from the side.
I do have a question - On Amazon, the TV is listed as being 120Hz. However, it has Motionflow XR 480. I was under the impression that if it has XR 480, then it was a 240hz panel. I cant find info on this anywhere
