As usual today, many system problems are actually a multiple off issues interfering with each other simultaneously. In this thread I had previously complained of inaccurate color and pink in the screen.
Based upon a properly working second sample, I can now state my first Olevia 265 had a defective screen. It had light diffuse pink colorations which varied by angle but were always there. It had a couple of bright corners too.
Being within my 30 day return at Sam's, I exchanged my display for another. There is a huge improvement as the pink is gone and the viewing angle is very wide with minimal shifting. Grey is grey and not with blotches of pink. The corners are not brighter either.
The factory technicians were of little help but forced me to go through the hassle of exchanging/moving this monster. I did have second thoughts of just returning it. But my gamble paid off. Its a keeper.
Now on to the skewed color temperatures. Native mode is blue overall but goes down to ~6500K at highest brightness. Native mode also skews down to is ~5500 at full brightness. So I'm going to calibrate the display externally using the Lumagen HDP with the HCFR software and the Eye-One Display probe. All for $1030 with a lot of fiddle time. Then I will have close to perfection.
Olevia is not alone with sample to sample variation, as a technician has replaced my Samsung 52" mainboard twice because I knew its performance was lacking (a clue was DNIe did not work).
New technology is usually rewarding but is almost always guaranteed to be a pain in the ass.
