Here's a perfect example...
Me: You lost me at Backlight 100.
Quantum: Then make your own damn settings. Problem solved 🤷🏾*♂️😂but know this, you can't touch My settings on your best day!
Me: So... show your settings. I mean... You're turning brightness down so far that it has to be digitally clipping blacks unless you're doing some major grayscale changes on the low end to mitigate it. And with the FALD on Low and backlight on 100, you're playing hell with their FALD algorithm. No need to be defensive, man. Just curious as to why anyone would EVER set the backlight on a Vizio to 100. Is that part of the optimizations you talked about that you're going to reveal later?
Quantum: No I've shown enough. It's your turn. Prove you have the ability to surpass any of My settings. I'm sick of the uneducated having opinions, given to them by mainstream reviewers. Show up in this conversation with facts. From where I sit you haven't even tried the actual settings, on the 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum. You're just being a f**kin a**hole.
Me: Again, I don't know why you are being so defensive, acting like someone was attacking you. I am asking you why you would ever use 100 backlighting and brightness in the 30s. Typically, Vizios digitally clip blacks if you set that below 49. Are you saying that this model is different? Or did you make major adjustments to grayscale?
Quantum: You're no one to question me. You have no experience, your opinon is worthless and you cannot possibly determine, by ear, weather something is being done incorrectly or not. Buy the tv I'm showing, and provide equivalent work.
Me: I do have some experience. I have done calibrations since CRT projection and have an older Vizio right now, but am looking to pick one of these up for my living room. Every Vizio P-series since 2016 has clipped black under 49 brightness unless you have modified grayscale. That is why I am asking you why your calibration has those two extremes. 100 backlight in SDR would be way over the peak nits target, and in HDR would skew the EOTF. So I was just wondering why you did it. If you don't want to answer the question, cool. Not sure why you are acting mad like you are being accused of something. I just wanted to know if there was a reason you calibrated that way.
I feel pretty certain that he'll end up blocking me... but it really is an honest question. He uses 100 backlight for a comparison vid and wonders why the Vizio looks washed out by comparison. Gee, I don't know... Because you're maxing out the backlighting unnecessarily? Then he posts his "universal" settings for it and backlight is still at 83. Is he even calibrating to any reference? I'd love to think it's just incompetence, but it seems awfully willful. Either way, it doesn't provide you with any useful information about the 2019 P-Series Quantum.
