It's not the LCD "clay-face" problem. Instead, it's an utter lack of filmic quality. Things are too crisp, kind of fakey, like everything is CGI (even people). I fiddled around with various settings and got it to look better, but it still doesn't look realistic. Also, the darks aren't quite as good.

Does anyone else have both panels? If so, do you have the same experience?
I have a TH-50PX50U, a PRO-150FD and a 64F8500. To eliminate the "video like" image rendered by the F8500 disable the Dynamic Contrast, Black Tone, Digital Clean View, MPEG Noise Filter, Film Mode, Motion Judder Canceller and Black Optimizer picture settings.

black optimizer doesn't need to be disabled


dynamic contrast, black tone, DCV, and MPEG NF shouldn't have anything to do with the SOE either, but I agree they should be turned off.

I randomly browsed a site I haven't been to in a long time and to my surprise they have a relatively recent review of the f8500 (August 20).

It's at Tom's hardware, and it's pretty favorable in case your interested.

Wait a tic, you use game mode for games? I thought the lag on that mode was unplayable?

Any difference between builds made in Mexico F8500AF compared to US models F8500AFXZ?

I think HSN is shipping me a AF model made in Mexico.

I'am praying that the Mexico builds have deeper blacks.

Thanks for the heads up

I checked out the review. At first i thought the review wasn't going to be thorough as most non-a/v review sites usually miss segments that CNET or hdtvtest.co.uk would cover and most of the time those non-audio/video review sites tend to leave picture enhancement settings on ( bc they couldn't tell if it affected gamma/shadow detail or that the picture looked more lively )

But this reviewer seemed competent enough to advise leaving dynamic picture settings off cuz he said it crushed low end shadow detail which is a good sign he knows something about picture quality. He said 3D performance was bright enough and great but didn't mention anything on brightness pops which has me thinking....either he doesn't know about it to notice it or just didn't notice it at all

I guess I could send him a PM and ask but i wanna know now not next week lol
