Well time for some not so great first impressions...
I'm pretty sure mine has backlight bleed, if you can call it that. Tried playing with settings more and no matter what, there's always a big ugly splotch in the lower right area on black screens.
FALD performance also really seems suboptimal. As I said before, there is some fairly extreme flickering happening, that is noticeable even in regular content, and especially in dark scenes. Blooming is also occasionally noticeable in real content. Also, I'm not getting any inky blacks in the background of black menus on my Xbox, either, almost like the FALD algorithms aren't recognizing that there should be true blacks right there and those zones need to be fully turned off.
And finally, motion sometimes looks really bad. Like just a slow landscape pan on some YouTube vids occasionally shows stuttering. This is probably my most minor complaint though so far.
I can't stay up too late tonight fiddling with it, but I'm not as impressed as I had hoped, even with tempered expectations. I haven't decided if it's worth it to try and get a replacement for the backlight bleed problem, cause I gotta pack it all back up and send it back, and again go back to my old 40" in the waiting period.
I do think the colors pop on this TV, really well. That feels more impressive than the Vizio P55 I owned just before this TCL. And the Roku interface is simply amazing, super speedy and very very easy to navigate. But I feel conflicted
Anyone have any tips or settings I can try out to get better performance from this TV?
