Yeah, seeing the difference first hand, the increase is truly surprising. The blacks go from being really dark and hard to notice the black bars during normal content, to seeing them very easily. It literally doubles, from .008 to probably .016 it is a very noticeable increase and it is unacceptable. If I wanted these crappy black levels I would have gotten a Samsung.
Luckily just doing a factory reset fixes this issue since it resets the internal clock and makes the set forget that this increase has already happened. Next time this happens I will call the tech and get something done about this, because this is ridiculous.
