If I just watch the grass...it looks like its dancing around. Of course....if I dont pay attention to it...it is no big deal. So do you use the Brilliant setting...or are you able to get the same pop on Bright or Natural? Thanks...and this is one gorgeous TV! Went with the BDI 9640 stand and friends are very impressed...as I am!
When I first got my 65831 I was in the same boat I liked the Bright and Brillian
much better than Nature. The Bright and Brillian seems to give more pop in the
pictures. After playing with it for 2 - 3 weeks than realize the Nature setting is
the way to go, it gives more neutral look. Yes, Nature setting still have less
pop, but everything looks real, on one football broadcast last week,
there were shoots in the anouncer booth, these people look like they are
sitting in front of me. The skin tones look more real compare to Bright mode.
What I see is in Bright and Brillian mode, the background is darken and added
some color to the focus image to show more pop, but cause black crush in the
background and little unrealiztic look on image. I think that why people said
after they have their TV calibrated they don't feel right at first, but once
they give some time, they said the image look more real. I wonder what
mode UMR used after he calibrated the 732 and 831.
I do use Bright mode when I play XBOX 360 and some HD broadcast
with bright images to get more pop.
