Is this still the case or is it safe for me to update to the latest firmware ?
on one hand, I think the ppl complaining about brightness are nuts, I've never seen any change in the picture quality from a fw update, and I've had the f8500 since may 2013
on the other hand, I've never noticed a change in picture quality from a fw update... so, unless there's something like brightness pops, or one of the smart features not working correctly, there's no need to update either.
