Just leave it Dynamic Mode - will burn out your eyes, but to each their own!

I don't think the light output variation is due to FW, because I've gotten results all over the map with the latest FW (light output in the 40s to mid 60s with similar settings, and very different black levels as well). I do not have any "insider" information on the subject, but it just seems like a high degree of sample to sample variation. I just did one today on which I was able to squeak out 52 fL with contrast at 98, cell light 20, BO at Auto, 5% size 18% APL windows. It looked great, BTW.

The F8500 doesn't seem to be clipping or stressing with those settings, and I believe it'd be OK to use settings like that for a day mode provided the rest of the calibration is built around them.

No change with black optimizer off.
I've tried lots of permutations - it seems like setting Film Mode: Cinema Smooth helps minimize it when watching Dark Knight Rises.

It's weird though - I'm able to recreate it if I bring up the system menu and leave it for 10 seconds. Not every time, but more so when I've been viewing dark content.

It's not that weird - mine has similar behavior. I was going to try and keep it, but was advised by two different Samsung tech support personnel to return the set because what I was seeing wasn't normal.

Perhaps try calling Samsung about your issue just to see what they say?

I can't speak towards gaming but for sports this TV is the best money can buy in my opinion. I've had the 64 inch model for 2 weeks now and couldn't be happier with what I'm seeing. Once I figured out the settings I tried watching World Cup games, nfl, and nhl content I had saved on my PVR from last season and the picture is fantastic. My girlfriend has a "middle of the road" LED 50 inch set and I've recorded the same content on her PVR as mine and the difference in picture quality is extremely noticeable. The motion blur on an led for sports drives me insane, on the 8500 it's heaven. Buy this set while you still can
