Is it possible for panels to degrade in picture quality over time?
I have a Samsung UN55C8000 LED TV - which I thought had amazing picture quality since I purchased it new back in 2010. Its still pretty good but lately ive been noticing alot of color/gradient banding artifacts when playing blurays with very dark scenes. I have disabled game mode which improves it but there is still some apparent artifacts. Off angle viewing seems worse possibly as well.
Its hard to know if im just used to seeing better panels lately (especially when I have an 8000 Nit display around me) or if my tv is actually starting to show its age.
