I generally only notice this when the white goes full screen which is a result of the ABL kicking in and dimming the screen on full white. If white takes up less than 50% of the screen, it looks...

Yeah, any of these sites that list settings should be considered only starting points to work from. Besides the contrast being too high, an OLED light at 16 would be far too low for my taste. Really...

Do you think you can find another OLED set to compare, too? That would be the only way to definitively tell if its just your preference or something is wrong with your set.

I was thinking the same. Shouldn't it be complete black screen (pixels off) behind "A long time ago..."? Don't know if I am remembering right.
