I just remembered... Black Optimizer is known to introduce a bit of flicker on dark areas. I notice it in mostly black screens. I assume the solution is not that easy and you see flicker in bright...

Don't worry about slides. All the advice above is good. Just vary what you watch for a few weeks. The panel is most prone to IR when new. So really just watch it but try to avoid the majority of your...

$2100 for a 60 inch is profiteering. I don't think it's THAT nice of a display.

It might be more appropriate for me to say F8500 flicker. Did you ever try a last gen Panny?

I arrived too late for the contrast discussion but definitely put it at 95 and leave it. Any higher than 96 and you'll start clipping colors. Misc patterns on the AVS 709 HD disc has a good...

Sadly you might just be bothered by plasma flicker. Interesting about the Korean panel though. I don't think to check that on my replacement. And won't now that it's back on the wall.

Interesting. I took some readings of my warranty replacement panel. Yesterday at MRT 2 black level was consistently 0.005 ftL. Today at MRT 18 in measures 0.004 ftL. I expected break in might change...

You have to redo the CMS when you change the Color setting.

One more thing... I have seen a MRT as high as 12 on a brand new set so don't freak out if it seems a but high unless it was sold as new and is CRAZY high. Lowest I've seen right out of the gate is 2.

Not sure what you mean by final calibrated settings. Put it in movie mode. Maybe drop the contrast and cell light by a few ticks if you want to be paranoid.


Use 16:9 during break in but yes...

It's really not that complicated.


If I throw up a full screen white field on my Kuro 5020FD the screen appears to the eye to be the same uniform color. Certainly not as bright as the F8500 can...

The F8500 is not my main TV so it's just a Vizio sound bar, bluray player/cable box and the TV. I made sure to get a player that supported audio delay internally.

My advice is to use WoW and...

Frankly I'm surprised you found a F5300 with good uniformity. All the ones I've seen are worse than my F8500s.

Making a uniform panel would cut into their profit margins! You just have to find...

Interesting. I've been dying to try Sony's Impulse setting because I like the science behind it and I like Motionflow on Clear with my NX720 even though there is a hint of SOE with it engaged.

That would be a bit disappointing considering the weight their opinions carry with consumers. But I have noticed some of them moving away from loaded words like 'perfect'. :)
