Resurrecting an oldie.
Figured I'd check out the self-calibration done early last year for drift yesterday. RGB levels (greyscale) needed a little tweaking. HDMI input was very close but Color Gamut had drifted some, mainly in the Secondaries. Gamma at +1 was good but almost spot on with a return to 0. White Balance and Custom Color really needed very little massaging overall. I was very pleased with the fairly steady and reliable performance over nearly 18 months.
I reported some slight
lower left corner burn-in on the 'Show your Samsung setup' thread. It looks to be channel logo related. Have downloaded a program to try and remove it but will approach with caution. Don't want to make a small issue into a bigger one.
Still very happy with this 58" puppy with no regrets passing on 3D. Figure I'll wait until the next great thing comes along before upgrading. Am close to finally getting a hand made cherry riser for the CC so I can free it from its trapped location behind the plaz ... and very grateful to the folks at Audyssey for still delivering excellent sound in spite of it.
Hope other owners are still as happy as I am. I'm pretty sure Spanbauer is.
