I just got another replacement which, I believe, is better than my previous screens, but the vertical banding is STILL prominent, particularly during SDR hockey games.
Hi, I just got the PX65-G delivered from Costco. I don't see noticeable bands when I'm directly in front of the screen running this test in the calibrated setting. If I move off to about 35% angle however, I can definitely see some lines, one in particular. The effect seems to be lessened with the off angle viewing enhancement. I would say it is nearly perfect if I'm square to the screen. No discolored blotches from any angle as far as I can tell. Also did the test with the UHD on some Arctic documentary footage...looked basically the same.
I am not as sensitive/aware as many posters, but I am coming from an LG PV400 plasma that I bought long ago (based on discussions on this site and favorable comparisons to the pioneer plasmas) and slightly modified the panel at that time. It has been years, but we all did something to make the blacks darker, if memory serves. I didn't get it calibrated but I bought some calibration disks/blu rays that I used.
I have not seen a non-plasma that I liked but my set in the bedroom finally crapped out. I basically see these bars in all of the non-plasma displays when watching football or hockey and from the side...yeesh, they struggle. I was going to get an OLED and put the plasma in the bedroom. I have a lot of sunlight in the family room during the day, however, and the OLED are still pretty shiny (the plasma glass screen was always a pain in my ass during the day).
I bought this over the Samsung q90 because I decided quantum led was good enough for my high light exposure use case and the two sets seemed to be basically a push as far as I could tell and the cost was like half. I bought from costco to somewhat mitigate the risks of vizio reputed quality control. I also looked at the TCL in store and this set smoked it (admittedly in store in not a good comparison for most people but as stated, I am interested in high ambient room light performance)
As far as initial problems: I have noticed that RDR2 on my ps4, with the HDR feature, appears pretty washed out. It is like I'm playing in a sand storm. I will try and toy around with settings to see if I can correct. I have been using the Rtings calibration/settings with some minor tweaks to those. Also, the youtube app in the smart cast goes to a dark screen. Not sure what is up with that...used my Roku streaming stick+ for the hockey/dse test. No Disney + app in smart cast, but I will probably mostly use the roku in any case.
Right now I am planning to keep it, but I am going to try and work it over for the next 90 days.
