I played for about 2 hours, including through a long boss/end of section scene with many running targets, before I realized that I was in Movie Mode. I noticed no difference in game play at all and was able to hit fast moving targets.
Anyone play outside of Game Mode? Do you not notice the higher lag or do you notice no difference either?
It depends on the game for me. I find it more noticeable on faster paced games like Halo or Titanfall. Sometimes I can tell because I'll make a quick tap on the joystick and once I've stopped, THEN I see the picture move. But mostly I noticed that my scores are consistently lower. Putting Game Mode on remedies that. Other games tho, I've played in Movie Mode and not noticed at all.

I didn't want to put too many triggers in one post!

Nope. I eventually got around to updating to 1168, and haven't checked since. I don't have any issue with the TV as it is, and the picture quality is the same as it's always been so there hasn't been a need. Now, if Game Mode gets a separate profile added for HDR I'll be spamming the Refresh button!

I have a Samsung UN65H6350 from 2014 that has a AUO panel and the picture quality is good. My best friend also has a UN75H6350 and a few years ago I brought my set over to his house and fed both sets the same feeds synced up so we could compare the sets. We also had a few of our friends come over just to get more feedback. Everyone agreed that my friends UN75H6350 with the Samsung panel looked better. Blacks were better along with contrast. His set had some clouding and some bleeding on one of the lower corners. My set has none of these issues so you can certainly pick your poison. Also I never said anyone was offensive just petty with this type of talk. I do think the original poster has a point. If you bought a car that had 130hps and you found out someone else bought the same model car but his had 200hps, you might be a little upset. Unfortunately none of the professional reviewers are looking at both panels. Until then we can argue this point forever.
We aren't talking about the UN75H6350 tho. We aren't talking about older Samsung models either. We are talking about the Samsung KS line - and specifically this TV, no others. No one is disagreeing that in other manufacturers TVs, or that in older Samsung TVs, that panels didn't make a difference. This is well known. You posted an anecdotal story about how you and your buddies preferred one panel over another - on a different TV. But again, we aren't discussing those TV's. You say that Panelook has some CR #'s
for AUO panels but all panels are different. Do you have the numbers for the one used in the KS TV? To use your car anology, just because the Ford Fiesta has 120 hp doesn't mean ALL Fords do. There would be a lot of upset Mustang drivers out there if that were so!
There have been other posts where people have had both panels side by side in their house at the same time, and while individual differences were noted (one maybe had more blooming or backlight bleed or back panel separation) no "huge difference" in picture quality was ever noted. Many users have also had their TV's calibrated and no drastic differences have been reported between panels. In a year and a half. As has been noted before, it's always fun to play detective and try to learn something new. It's also good to be aware of as much as possible so as to make a proper informed purchasing decision (which is becoming less and less relevant as supply dwindles out). Speculation without proof doesn't outweigh a year and a half's worth of experience tho. I stand by my previous comment: no matter what panel you have, enjoy your TV since you have a great TV.
