One more added point. My improvement is still holding up very well after surgery, but I always view THX cinema calibrated and when I check calibrated pro the blobs are good also. This means that if I can still see a hint on normal mode then calibration can be of some benefit.

After 2 weeks on the ECO/Energy Saving mode, I can report that it does help to significantly reduce the yellow blob on both sides. With ECO/Energy Saving off, the blobs would catch my attention on every high APL image. Now, I don't really see the blobs unless I actively look for them. For my next re-calibration, I intend to do so with ECO/Energy Saving turned on.

Stash64 very cool thinking. I wonder what exactly the Eco mode does. Apart from adjusting contrast automatically depending on ambient light.

It could somehow reduce other energy resources taking heat away from the panel. I don't know but well done on bringing new thoughts to this thread

If my blobs come back on the new panel (hoping not) I'll give this a try!

I don't think it is dependent on ambient light. I think it just rolls off the brightness/contrast on high APL images. Another side benefit that I noticed from the very beginning is that board "buzzing" is also reduced. I did use the ECO Energy Saving during the first couple months with my VT50 for break in and also because I am sensitive to the buzzing, but I ended up calibrating with Energy Saving turned off.

Overall, I really prefer the reduced brightness under high APL. The picture seems to have more depth and blacks appear blacker, even with moderate APL images.
