Last night I was watching a show (Penny Dreadful) with my wife and pointed out how in dark movies the zones light up. She see's it as flickering.
I know know that it's the zones because in a movie I was watching the bottom 2 zones were illuminated and then with a move of the screen the 2nd row of zones from the bottom also illuminated. So 4 zones were not as black as the top 4 zones.
Do you all watch movies with some sort of ambient light on?
Do you think a prof. calibration would help eliminate this (not that it'd go away but bet better because back light, brightness, grayscale, etc... would be properly set up)?
I always shut off all my lights but a set way off to the side when watching my old CRT set. No with this set I think I either need to turn more lights on or get used to seeing this happen with dark movies.
Currently the kids have The Croods on and it looks fantastic. So watching in daylight it's great.
I found an open box Panasonic 55" ST60 plasma... i haven't seen it in person yet but this was the set I had originally planned to get. It's the right size and Plasma would eliminate my issues. I am very tempted to see what Amazon is going to hit me with to return it.
