So far no brightness pops. Very happy. Thanks again zoyd. I firmly believe Samsung owes you some preferred stock for your help.
I do however, notice one very perculiar quirk with this new logic upgrade: Some of the Blu-Rays from the Planet Earth BBC set make my TV pulse with light. It happens with a lot of high contrast scenes; particularly with scenes of sunrays through vegetation.
The TV makes a very fast pulsing during these scenes. Like a strobe light. Very slight but highly noticeable. Its weird, its not like the FBr because the whole TV doesn't fluxuate. Just any part of the TV with higher spectrum colors.
I don't think its a defective TV; it might just be a limitation of the plasma technology. It appears the TV is working its butt off to do this.
Very happy with my TV, but if any of you watch these amazing blu-rays, see if you notice this. Thanks.
