I'm disgusted, disappointed, etc., etc. Gonna make a trip to BB in the morning.
That is about as sad as a sick puppy. Wow. I would like to be a fly on the wall when that one comes back into the distribution center and gets reviewed.

So, with the HDR "mode" is that like a pseudo setting you can use for any content? If you play a native HDR feed, will the TV automatically switch into HDR mode?
I bought this TV as it was this or the JS8500, and mine had blue corners. I don't remember seeing a dedicated HDR mode on that tv, but it could have been there (only had it for 48 hours.)
My question is this.. Is the Sony's HDR mode just like a preset on the display settings or does it truly change the way the tv present an image. I'm trying to understand how a tv would be able to get dark enough with a direct lighting system.
Either way, it's a damn fine television and I do like it. Any tips on how to reduce DSE would be appreciated. Not like it's a MAJOR issue, but it was pretty common on the Toshiba 42HL67 720p lcd that precedes my new set. I know that set is over 8 years old now.
This article provides a good explanation:
It's source content and TV/settings related, so no, you can't just select HDR picture mode on all your content and have an HDR picture.

For me it was a big deal to get a TV this nice but i am kinda having buyers remorse.
I noticed the Samsung JS7100 was marked down to the same price for blackfriday sales
and i am wondering if i should send the 65x850c back to bestbuy to get the JS7100
I spend most of my time watching movies and playing ps4 and xbox one.
Ive read so many different opinions on the tv's my head is spinning.
So here are my questions. When i was playing halo 5 last night i felt like i could feel the slightest bit of input lag.
I have the TV in game mode is there anything else i need to do to reduce the input lag?
Another thing i noticed that was horrible was when watching cable TV (i have FIOS)
SD channels looked super grainy and i couldn't get the image to fit properly on the TV.
The only setting that made it full screen was ZOOMED but when i accessed my cable box UI it was zoomed in as well and i would have
to change the picture back to normal to see the menu. Are there any settings within the TV im missing to fix any of these issues?
Thanks for you're time guys look forward to hearing some feedback.
Sounds like you need to look at the output resolution settings of your FIOS box...I have Time Warner, box is set to output w/out any up/downscaling, so HD channels are either 720p/1080p and look very good to great, SD channels are at 480i and look good, but you are limited by the quality of the input - an old grainy movie on TMC ain't gonna upscale to 4K as well as 720p/1080p content. GIGO is still the rule even w/the excellent upscaling engine on these televisions.
