It's not a gimmick. It noticeably improves black level/contrast ratio, and it's recommended by calibrators to leave on. With it turned off you're looking at mid range plasma blacks. That's not a...

There's nothing wrong with your set. The "pulsating" or "flickering" on an all black screen is due to black optimizer being turned on. It does some kind of pulse waveform to lower the black level....

As others have said, you would be better off getting a GTX 960 as it can hardware decode H.265. There's no difference in picture quality between a 980/970/960, or really any card for that matter.

You wouldn't get anywhere close to that, not even with the 60" model.

Same with mine. The longer it's on and the brighter the cell light/contrast, the brighter the pink. The only time where it's not that noticeable is the first few minutes after power on.

My set looks identical as the day I got it almost a year ago. It does have some DSE, as all of these models do. This won't be replaced under warranty.

For the price, it's not a deal breaker by...

I have an MSI Gaming GTX 960. It is completely passive until 60 degrees C. Even under full load the fans spin so slow I can't hear it.

IIRC the 50S64 was $599 and the 65S64 was like $1278 or something with some stores having them at around $1100 at closeout.

The filter on the S64/ST60 was not as good as the ZT60 or F8500, but it...

GTX 960 will be able to upscale 1080p24 and 1080p30 to 4K with NNEDI3, but not 1080p50 or 60. For that you'll need to use Jinc (which is still probably better than your tvs processing).

OK. Did a custom refresh of 23.976. MPC-HC says refresh is at 23.97605. Still says 1 frame repeat every 15 minutes. Doesn't seem right.

Also, after I saved it, it changed the refresh to 24hz in...

Every time a frame drops there is a stutter in the video, especially noticeable if someone is walking or there is a camera pan at that exact moment.


Can you post your settings or link to them?

I wouldn't recommend buying a $200 card just to run madVR. As long as it can do 720p60 at 16 neurons and 720p24 at 32 neurons (upscaled to 1080p) I'm happy. I can do 128 neurons but I don't see the...
