Are you sure? Samsung's own website
description for the feature says the following:
~Setting Shadow detail into the negative (-) direction makes the TV dim more for darker images.
~Setting Shadow detail to 0 disables the auto dimming.
~Setting Shadow detail into the possative (+) direction makes the TV brighten the darker images.
Could be the feature has different effects on different TV models, I suppose.
Anyways, I just recently bought a LN46D550, and I'm enjoying it quite a bit.
Anyone noticed there seems to be some "under the hood" differences between movie and standard modes? What I mean is, even when each setting on both modes
is manually set in an identical manner, there seems to be a subtle difference in the picture nevertheless.
Quick question for those using a Playstation 3 as a source, what RGB Full Range [Full or Limited] and Super White settings [On or Off] are best for this display? I know there's a Playstation forum here as well, but I figured I'd ask the folks who know our display best.
