Finally! Hopefully I can get Rogue One in 4K! I'm not buying it until that's a possibility. This is good news!

Definitely not "unanimously". SOME have felt it was the best firmware and declared it as such, others have disagreed. It seems to have popped up recently out of nowhere that 1165 is "best". I'm on 1168 and it works as well as 1165 and all previous firmwares. I haven't had an issue with any of the firmwares, they have all worked as they should. Various people have had various issues with various firmwares that others haven't. It seems to be down to individual sets as opposed to individual firmwares. It would be a shame to have people be paranoid to upgrade their firmware for nothing. Although ideally we would be able to downgrade our firmwares to whichever version we want. When a new firmware comes out, try it - if there's something you don't like about it, go back to one you do like until the next one comes to try!

The problem with 'WoW' placebo quality is that, by definition you would be seeing something that is or isn't there. It's "in your head". That's what a placebo is. The 'WoW' quality may be better, or may not change (or maybe never changed), but if you have it in your head that it's worse, it won't matter what the reality is. Even if 1180.5 did improve the 'WoW' effect, it wouldn't make a difference, so how are we supposed to recommend what you should or shouldn't do?
How about this - since the 'WoW' placebo quality is purely subjective and up to you, you can end up with three results: 1) 'WoW' is improved. 2) 'WoW' stays the same 3) 'WoW' is worse. You have a 2 out of 3 chance that 'WoW' stays the same or improves. Reports from users with 1180.5 are either that quality has improved slightly or has stayed the same, no reports of it getting worse. So you have a better than 2 of 3 chance of it not being worse. I say go for it, you have very little to lose. If you don't like it, you can always blame me. I can take it.
