haven’t played any PC games in [email protected]
, my main game is PUBG and I prefer the higher frame rate over resolution. Playing PUBG on an 82 inch screen only 12 feet away and with 7.1 surround sound is just a fantastic immersive experience and it really elevates my gameplay (which admittingly isn’t that good haha).
In my opinion, the “weakness” in my TV and my viewing experience has been when watching normal 1080 content from my Verizon FIOS provider. I have the latest 4K boxes and I have set its output to 1080 and let either my receiver (Denon 4500) or my TV upscale the image.
To put it bluntly, the picture quality is mostly just average. There are times when the picture looks pretty good but there are often times when it looks really really bad. I find it really struggles on certain low light or dim scenes. The TV will have what I describe as noise or graininess mainly in the background of a scene but sometimes in the forefront. I have found this quite frequently in many scenes from HBO’s Game Of Thrones that they are currently airing. It is so bad it becomes unwatchable.
I have tried every setting or combination thereof but to no avail. I find that enabling contrast enhancer or disabling digital clean view further diminishes the picture quality in those scenes in which it struggles.
I use the following settings to make it the best that it can which like I said before isn’t that great:
Picture Mode Standard
Digital Clean and Automotion AUTO
Local Dimming High
Contrast Enhancer Off
Color Tone Warm1
Color Space Native
I’ve tried having my AVR upscale the picture to 4K, having the TV upscale it, and even the Verizon FIOS box. I’ve switched HDMI cables an even switched AVR’s. But nothing really helps.
I am posting here to tell about my experience, I have heard others mention issues with this and was wondering if they were still experiencing these issues and if not what they did to make their viewing experience better.
Returning this TV is an incredibly hard decision for me because I love this TV so much when viewing 4KHDR content and gaming but at the end of the day when I am watching normal content and my TV picture looks worse than my 10 year old 70 inch Sharp Aquous TV I simply cannot justify having this TV at its price. I really wanted to have this TV for a long time but now I am trying to figure what I am going to do if and when I return it. My return window comes to an end in another 9 days, so I do have a little time.
I could try again with another 82 Q90R but I highly doubt that it would make a difference. I was thinking maybe I could save some money and getting a Q8N or 900F and then wait a few more years before buying another high-end TV.
