2.4 is the way to get to the 9300's "Sweet Spot". No doubt about it. Contrast at around 80 or so, Brightness at about 54 or so give or take, and OLED light to taste, although I find keeping it as...

What are your settings for picture mode, brightness, contrast and oled levels?

As for break in, I am currently at 4000 hours and my 9300 looks better than ever. It took a good 300 hours or so for...

I am seated in a Laz-y-Boy exactly in the sweet spot. The distance is closer to 10 feet when I recline which is about half the time. Correct setting of the Darbee will result in NOT seeing it work,...

Been using the combo for over a year now and would not consider running my 9300 without it. I sit approx. 10 feet away and depending on the program material, the difference is striking. I run the...

Put a few hundred hours on it minimum before paying for a calibration. Otherwise it will drift and be out of whack visibly within 6 months. Mine settled in around the 300 hour mark and has been...

I absolutely agree regarding the break-in period. My 9300 changed character massively over the first 300/500 hours. Only rarely do I even see the dreaded 'vignetting' at near black and usually only...

I am now about one year into owning and enjoying my 9300. (paid the full 3500 back then) I can honestly say I will NEVER go back to LCD. I do have the upgrade urge already, but am waiting for an LG...

That is exactly what I did and have programmed a custom "toggle" button on my Harmony One for all activities that involve the 9300. Easy on/off for lengthy pauses.
