Ok, so my 65" is up and running. For everyone, Im running the version MH01. I can report that my issues with banding an minimal to virtually none. These pics were minutes after I hooked the tv up. Factory settings (for some reason, around the mouse pionter....and well most everyhting else, there was ghosting....I changed 2 things from the time I took the pictures and now, and its completely gone and everything is SIGNIFICANTLY more sharp and to a point where I am extremely happy with it (and my regular monitor is a dell 24" 1920x1200 u2410 ultra sharp monitor....so my standards are high)...I switched over to pc mode and used nxsfans settings and I switched from using an old DVI to HDMI cable and replaced it with a new mediabridge HDMI cable with ethernet support and all the bells and whistles.
I actually think it was the cable switching that fixed it, which bums me out because I need that HDMI port to output HD audio (it wont output over optical).
Ok, but that issue is gone now. At this time I have really not run any other tests, but things look great so far.
Ok on to pictures
Sorry for image quality....i might try to upload more tomorrow. The banding is hardly there, its very tough for me to see it, when looking for it..
Here is a picture of me in xbmc
I also just thought those pictures were bad, my driod dna didnt like taking pictures of a bright screen. I tried shooting a video....I hope I dont break any rules by trying to show it on youtube....in the video, you can see the ghosting around the mouse (gone now)....actually, Ill just upload another picture to show its gone
I will take that video down at some point somewhat soon.
Thats a picture showing the ghosting is gone...gradient is smooth. Mine looks absolutely nothing like like yours nxsfan. Id call and ask if there is any way to switch yours out (if you think mine looks as much clearer as I think it does)
