All TV's are not created equal...except for Panasonic Plasma TV.
After looking at tons of LED and OLED tv at Costco and Best Buy, there are significant issues with uniformity and DSE.
Panels with FA suppose to be Samsung. Better viewing angles...but less contrast (rtings)
Per other forums...FB04 is a better panel but thats for q7 series.
I initially had AB03 on my Q7 then replaced the panel which was version AA04 then replaced a whole new tv that has panel FB04....this new panel is so much better.
The ticking is not a panel issue. Per Rtings
RTINGS.com states they believe it's from the expansion and compression of the plastic and metal when the TV turns on, warms up, and then cools back down again. However, the fact that the "clicking" can be heard for SUCH a long time and can be heard even over the sound of anything you have on TV is inexcusable."
What should you do? You like a big picture but hate the DSE. Do what I did. I have my regular TV and my projector Optoma hd141x. Big for Movies and Sports. No DSE no blooming no banding and no motion issues. Yeap...you need a dark room unless you pay for a special black screen.
We need a new technology. LED has to go. We need Plasma. Perhaps a super plasma TV which is light, great in bright rooms, and can do 4k. Plasma is Perfect.
