Its here!!! Its here!!!...I finally got my 500M delivered on monday evening and i immediately switched the input from the 1080p vizio i bought to hold me over till the kuro arrived (i calibrated it with S&M disc)...and the PQ was jaw dropping (as expected)...so i packed the vizio to the side and went through the various modes
Dynamic, Movie, Pure were unwatchable to me out of the box...I mean pure and movie was just crap and am not referring to it being dim, everything looked washed out and terrible. Dynamic should be renamed blue mode, nough said!
I loved standard and user mode (they looked exactly the same)optimum, game and sport are modes i'll doubt i'll ever use. So i tried to calibrate pure with the S&m disc that came with my oppo 83 and worked wonders for the vizio....the result was still crap!. Then I entered elite home's settings in to pure...it wasn't crap, but it was bad (all this time i've been using standard to watch my movies and loving it)...that's when i remembered that i've not done the break in and thus might affect the result of elite home's settings. So I started the break in on wed and by friday i swear the pic quality was a lot better, the black were better and inkier...either that or i need to see a psychiatrist for my mind is playing tricks on me.
Anyway i choose to reset pure and calitrate it using Avs disc...and the result was just great...well a lot better and actually very watchable for me. I also inserted elite home's pure settings into user for my amusement
..and i actually kind of liked it. But I have a couple of questions for Dnice (or anyone)
1) I read somewhere that the 500m were broken in from the factory for a 100hrs so they only need 50 hrs break in. does that mean i only have to break it in for 50hrs? (as am typing this I just clocked hour 49 i adjusted the color and gamma to new setting on hr 47)
2)Am now leaning toward getting professional calibation done, cause i think for me to love pure mode i might need to have it pro calibrated, but the decision is pending till after break in. my question is this, do u think pro calibration can remove the dirty white in pure mode, and that very slight dirty "tint" or should i call it "thin vail" or "overlay" I see in pure mode? and ofcourse the light output (minor issue).
3) Is it actually possible for PQ to improve so much so soon after the break in process (about 35hrs) or is my mind playing tricks on me?..The forbidden kingdom looked AMAZING!!!
For those who would think am just one of those ppl who dislikes ISF like or "accurate" pictures, let me say that the best PQ i ever seen b4 the 9G Kuros is from an ISF calibrated PRO-FHD1 in magnolia...it was breathtaking. So i have no problems with accurate or isf setting but the pure i see i far from it out of the box contrary to all the reviews i read from different publications. Thanks in advance for your response and sorry for the long post!
