- Clearness to High is using a frequency of 60Hz for the BFI compared to the 120Hz most other TVs are using and that probably explains why it is so efficient at removing blur with 60 fps video games since the BFI matches the framerate perfectly. That picture of the [email protected]
looks very good and I can finally see such a picture example!
- 24p over 60p/i has a bug that makes content judder sometimes
- A1E is lower brightness than C7
- ABL on the A1E seems worst than on the C7

I thought CLEDIS was individual RGB leds for each pixels, aka 8 millions zones just like OLED? But yeah, it will kill everything else on the market for it's non organic, non image retention, emissive display tech.

I also found that the TV is only single strobing at Clearness setting "high" (60 Hz). Super apparent flicker. Will probably box the TV up tonight.
So you are seeing the flickering at Clearness HIGH using 60 fps games as the source? Yes it flickers at 60Hz on HIGH and does not flicker at all on LOW according to rtings.
What about the removal of motion blur? Is it pretty much removed completely on clearness at HIGH? It should be great since it flickers at same rate as the fps but the disadvantage of 60hz BFI is some people will see the flickering and seems like you are one of these people.

On my personal A1 where I do my critical viewing, I tried out the Sony X800 and I'm about 8 feet away and could see the difference in fidelity between the X800 and 203.
I have a X800 connected to my bedroom A1.. and for the viewing distance there (15 feet back), it looks great.
I'm using an AudioQuest Chocolate HDMI cable and the video fidelity is flawless with the 203.
I still have my Oppo-103 here but I never liked the PQ that came out of it from day 1. I bought it for it's "stellar" deinterlacing back then because I planned to use it to watch my interlaced content and the rest too. I found the deinterlacing to be worst than my PS3 with black horizontal bars (missed deinterlacing frames) showing on scene changes on 480i DVDs which disappointed me greatly. As for the non interlaced content, there were graphical bugs during blu-ray playback sometimes (flickering parts of the image in a part of the movie Oblivion was my experience) and the image was a tiny bit more blurry (or less sharp) than on my Dune player or PS3 (the blurry part was said by other owners too).
Did the 103d (darbee) corrected these things and does the 203 corrected them too?
I am very reluctant in going back to Oppo with my personal experience and don't understand the hype they get from my experience. In fact I'm still puzzled to this day about how my experience is so different than what I read about it online.
I have the Panasonic UB900 and thought it looked great on my E6's last year so I kept it and will be able to use it when I get the new 4k tv, possibly the A1E.
