Not really a flicker, but almost a flicker. That's the best I can describe it. I remember having a 60" LED that I returned and watching that in the dark was never an issue. I've messed around with cell light, contrast, and brightness. ...I'm watching a dark movie called the Fountain and my eyes are killing me. I though this is something I would get used to, but with only having a 15 day return period from BB, I don't have much time.
It really bums me out, because the uniformity, colors, and clarity are the best I've seen. It makes Uverse look better than I've ever seen it.
These are comments I posted about 2-3 weeks ago in the other thread.
About 4 days ago, I watched a DVR'd Game of Thrones in the dark, episode 9
!!, and afterwards we were talking about the episode and this and that, when I realized that I had no eye fatigue nor noticed any sort of 'pulsating' in the picture. After a while, we watched that week's Mad Men and I was sort of waiting for the eye fatigue to set in, but forgot all about it and just enjoyed the show. Since then I've watched other shows in the dark and haven't noticed any eye fatigue, pulsating, or "like-flicker". Just the amazing PQ this display puts out ;D (FWIW, I've only been watching Uverse these last 4 days, not blu-ray, which is what previously gave me the most eye-fatigue, so it may still be too early to tell)
I'm trying to understand how I could go from this being an issue for me, to not an issue at all. Either: (a) I've become used to "plasma flicker" and don't notice it anymore, (b) my pixels/display has settled down and doesn't "pulsate" anymore, or (c) my 5-year-old Sony blu-ray player is the main culprit and was creating a placebo when previously watching Uverse.
