What's the source of the banding you are seeing (blu-ray? Cable? DVD?)
I don't really have a camera good enough to show it. I've tested it on blu-ray (WoW Disc) and video games.
Turning off Active LED doesn't help.
Yes, I only see it in like a blue sky or a green field when PANNING. I'm on my 5th set, the 4th was replaced by Vizio themselves and I think (correct me if I'm wrong please) that they check their replacements before they send them out.
For me to show you I'd have to setup my phone on a stable and level enough surface thats high enough to capture video and I'd have to post it probably on Youtube. A picture might capture it.
You can see it barely on still images, but I dont have that really dark grey on a disc that really shows banding on a still image, I've been lazy.
Mainly, I'm just looking for a claim from someone who notices no banding from panning at all.
I am using stock settings. I cant find good calibration settings that would affect it a bit. The ones David K posted are off for some reason.
Keep in mind, I have seen TVs that don't have any banding at all at this large of size and bigger. I really think its a FALD thing -- This post and quote kind of summarizes what I think is happening :
Official 2014 Vizio Mxxx-Bx Series owners thread
I feel like that's just the norm of the TV since I've seen it across 5 (3 from Amazon, 1 from Best Buy and my current replacement from Vizio) sets.
Even more. Sony's last year FALD had banding complaints and even this year with their flagship, I see complaints. Local dimming with traditional LEDs on the side, I don't really see consistent complaints. I ordered a Sony X900B which is ranked #1
for picture quality besides a plasma on CNET, but it's not FALD, just local dimming, so I'm hoping for good things. I still have this TV and am thinking of giving it to my cousin as a birthday present.
