Wow I wanted this set because I thought it had a true 10-bit panel. I guess that's why Samsung mentioned st CES that the 2016 SUHD sets have "10-bit" panels. I've seen 8-bit banding in the UHD version of Exodus in scenes with a blue sky. Guess 8-bit+FCR is not that great.
I'm increaseing becoming more annoyed by this model. The fact that a panel lottery exists in 2016 is malarkey and also the fact that after BF they make the set cheaper. Regardless I lost again! Will there not be a third JS8500 in my life... Nope not worth the possible blue bleed. I will see what happens over the next 30 days with this set and see if I can deal with the banding and clouding.
If not, the TVs going back and I'll buy the new XBR-65X930D when it's on sale for 3k. I've heard that the black uniformity on this edgelit set are amazing. Guess I'll have to pony up and buy a set when it first comes out.
Current gear: UN65JS8500 (Main TV), M40-C2(Guestroom TV), I1D3(Using HCFR)
