Morning all,


I have recently purchased a Samsung PN60E6500 plasma (Canadian model, 2012) and have a question about RealBlackPro on this panel.

I have looked at calibrated settings for optimal picture quality on my panel as posted by various professional reviewers.

Under all reviews I've found, I've noticed that the "Black Tone" option is generally recommended turned "OFF".

I was wondering, isn't this "Black Tone" the menu option to turn on/off the RealBlackPro technology as well as to set varying levels of its black performance?

Why is this setting recommended "Off"? If this is in fact NOT the correct menu setting for the RealBlackPro... where can I find this setting?

Is RealBlackPro on by default with no ability to turn it on/off or change various levels of it?

Please explain...

Cheers!

Real black pro is the panel itself not an option to turn off. Black tone can be adjusted in the menu

Dabsac, Thanks for the reply,


Ok.. so in that case, RealBlackPro is always on by default then?

Why do the blacks levels and shadow details "appear" more detailed when I switch this "Black Tone" from Off to Dark, Darker, Darkest?

Yes real black pro is always on because it is the panel/anti reflective filter. Someone more knowledgeable about this could give you a better answer than me, but all black tone does Is increase the black levels which I have heard increases "black crushing". On my e7000 I have it set to dark or off depending on the source.
