Methinks we need to start specifying WHICH 8550 we are referring to in this thread, since the 85" clearly uses a different lighting technology (maybe not full FALD, but definitely not Edge-lit) than the rest of the lineup.
For example, the assertion that "8550 shows dark grey with letterbox movies" isn't an accurate generalization, as on my UN85HU8550, I get "almost black" instead of "dark grey."
I'd love to see a professional calibrators' comparison of the UN75HU8550 vs UN85HU8550 configurations. Heck, I'll host a calibrator at my house if he needs an 85" to work on (I'm in MA).
