My girlfriend has a 50 inch model and I have a 60 inch model (ST60) On movies like Star Trek and Total Recall, regardless of input, there are lots of scenes with bright lights or lighting in the background that ends up causing a bright streak across the entire screen. Very distracting, almost as much as the ABL issue on my former Samsung D7000.

Has anyone seen this? I haven't seen a single complaint on AVS which makes me wonder if we just have two defective sets or some setting is wrong? Running it in Cinema mode, turned off most of the cute little functions that everyone else seems to disable.

The system is not letting me upload any pictures......I'll try and post again with some photos.

If you are looking at 2 different TV's in 2 different sizes I would say the odds are pretty slim they both have the same defect and would think it is the way the TV handles certain scenes. I picture would help more though.

I know Star Trek is full of light streaks that were put in in post-production. Maybe it is just the film?

Both movies are full of lens flares. Nothing wrong with the sets.

Adjusting settings according to personal preference is not calibration.

Thank you for the input. Oddly enough, we went to watch the new Star Trek at the theater last night and guess what? It too was full of lens flares. Everytime one popped up, we would look at each other.

There's not really anything odd about it. J.J. Abrams is notorious for (over)using the effect.

Those are lens flare effects, nothing to worried about.

Lens flare. Seems to be the thing to do in movies nowadays for whatever reason...

Something really needs to be about it. It's the most annoying thing I've encountered watching movies although shaky cam is close.

Don't buy the movies that use it?
