If this doesn't look like a wow factor then get a 100" projector screen to be really wowed. Your 50" will look like a toy once you setup a 64" in the same space.

You do not need to calibrate your TV to get an improvement out if it from vivid mode, you just need to choose any other mode on the TV to see an improvement.

Vivid mode on the F8500 is one of the worst vivid modes I have ever seen. Why oh why would you ever buy an F8500?

It's mostly colors that will drift over time so without a meter you won't be effected by that anyway.

For the stuff like brightness (black levels) and contrast you can set that whenever and check...

So why can the F5300 hit all of its saturation targets beautifully but we are struggling with the F8500. Doesn't make sense.

Sure Chad B is a pro but why are we so far off.

Of course the panel will be more susceptible to IR early on but by breaking in the panel early on will not help IR later on. No matter how you break it in at the beginning, you won't be any more IR...

It is amazing that they were ever allowed to go into commercial production.
