Likewise... I bought into an 8350 in July, retiring a 7 year old JVC HDiLA 56 inch rear projection. I was also slightly discouraged by the near-black level, but found a happy medium with a hard screen and Maxx Mud sprayed surface. For the price, I am happy that I now have a better and larger surface to watch movies that fits more closely with the 7.1 surround system it accompanies. There are better units, but this one fits my wallet and lives up to the hype this forum has provided.

As a note, I opted for the ceiling mount and went with the $90 cheaper universal bracket over the $230 dedicated one. The cheaper one uses a plastic joiner that lends to vibration and movement. There is a room above and anyone (person or pet) moving around up there causes a bit of screen shake. Just a heads up for those interested in saving the difference.

This is just review, in my opinion.
I totally agree with pretty much everything you covered with regards to our 8350. However, I use the xv color mode along with tweaking the settings on my ps4 and vsx53 and let me tell you wow! I have never professionally calibrated this pj. Due to the fact of current living situation. I would hate to calibrate then change the dynamics and would have to do it again. Kinda hits the pockets. If you still have the projector and love seeing natural colors try the xv color mode.

Let me know if you like the xv color mode as much as I do!

My questions is the aspect ratio choices and the 2:2 drop down options along with overscsn % still wanting to find out if this would benefit or not.
