Katzmaier has posted settings for the 55HX950. Review should be out shortly. http://forums.cnet.com/7723-19410_102-578191/sony-xbr-55hx950-picture-settings/?tag=contentBody;threadListing http://www.scribd.com/doc/113814548/Sony-XBR-55HX950-CNET-review-calibration-results (calibration report) Interestingly, the backlight needed to be max'd out using the custom picture preset.
No problem. Just sharing info that I've come across. It's a lot of money for most, so I understand the consternation.The statement which you initially took umbrage with was these comparisons were silly. People are capturing these images on different equipment with certain ISO / f-stop / shutter speeds and then viewing them on displays of varying capability -- displays that almost certainly do not possess commensurate PQ attributes (gamma, grayscale, CR) to your 929. So...
The plasma is a way better performer than the 2006 LCD in a dim environment. Photos are a very unreliable way to compare PQ
My point exactly.
What do you think of these photos from my 2006 Westinghouse LCD? Better or worse than my 2010 Samsung plasma...? The HX950 easily bests these displays for black level in low APL scenes. Pictures can be deceiving.
Well, that extra 10" commands a higher price because it offers ~40% more viewing area. Though I'll grant you that the markup on the 65HX950 is more than 40%. It could be related to scale (Samsung selling a lot more I would reserve judgment concerning PQ, viewing angles, etc until someone can perform an objective side-by-side comparison or determine what panel tech is used in the 65HX950. You're free to distrust Samsung -- I certainly wouldn't buy their current generation...
The pixel structure on the 55HX929/55HX950 are both consistent with PVA w/ PSA. However, the 55HX950 uses a different panel than its 55HX929 predecessor, suggesting Samsung's newer panels are being used. Note the HX850 series uses the older 55HX920 series panel.55HX820: FQLL550LT0155HX850: FQLR550LT0146HX920: FQLR460LT0155HX950: FQLF550DT0265HX920: V645H1-PE155HX950 (PVA w/PSA)http://tech.hexun.com.tw/2012-09-27/146332725.html65HX920...
It's not uncommon for CEMs to use different panels within a model range; Samsung is well-known for using different models even for the same size of a given model (i.e., the panel lottery). There was a report earlier this year that Sony was using next-gen PVA panels in their 2012 TVs. http://www.digitalversus.com/tv-television/sony-bravia-kdl-46hx750-p12640/sony-sticks-with-pva-panels-2012-tvs-n23055.html Historically, PVA panels have higher native CR, better color...
All 1920x1080x3 subpixels in my 55"-er are working properly. So that's one data point.
This paper discusses some methods PDPs use to reduce crosstalk. The third point could create a dimmer picture or one with more flicker as a consequence. My understanding was the sample-and-hold nature of LCD tech makes it more prone to crosstalk.Use of phosphors with faster decay times (miminize afterflow)Reversal of subfield order (brightest subfield 1st)Faster (4x) subfield driving (create "dead time" period where neither eye receives light).
