I noticed immediately the blacks seemed blacker on the 64 compared to the 59, but I attributed it to the panel size and differences there. I was not aware they changed the RBF. I think the 64 has worse uniformity and more line bleed than the 59, but I can't confidently say I'm just more OCD about the 64.
I don't think the new RBF makes the black level worse. It's just that the characteristic of the reflection is more prismatic on the new one and makes it more distracting if you have direct light reflecting off of it. Blacks seem the same to me when there's not a light bulb shining behind me.
But I may have steered OT with that. I don't think the change in RBF has anything to do with what .bin to use. Just hoping to find an easier way for people to tell which one to use. Also just curious.
So I did the update on both mine and my Fathers
Both of us have 64D7000. The Panel version / Type were the same (DS/D5) as well as the Logic SW and CheckSum.
After the update the Logic SW/CheckSum were also the same
Both took 64DS_ITO_Deepblack
Only difference between the two is July vs August and the different RBF. So go figure. Seems it's random.
Both have had great results. I've watched material that I knew exhibited pops and there were none. My Father watches a lot of old B&W westerns in 4:3. He always bitched about the pops. He says he hasn't seen one all day when normally he'd see dozens.
So we'd both like to thank Zoyd and Larry for this great work. It's helping a lot of people.
