TV settings as described, very dark room. I see slightly darker spots on the right side. I don't see this generally on content. I tested using the two fragments provider here from the OA (on Netflix in DV): I can see some bands during camera pans. In Marco Polo fragment I vaguely notice some banding again during quick camera panning (but this time I need to try really hard to notice anything).
I don't really see color variation or dithering with my eyes, but camera picked it up. It looks better in person. To me looks like a keeper. WDYT?
BTW, if I change TV settings to the ones I usually use:
OLED light 60
Then I see this at 5%: https://i.imgur.com/Uq5Il4m.jpg
This is almost perfectly uniform to my eyes.
Color uniformity in bright scenes
I see slight blue tint on TV edges: approximately 1.5 inch on each side, but especially on left and top edge.
If I specifically look for this I see this in real content when there is a lot of white or light gray. I don't usually look at the edges, it's really on the periphery of the vision. But I guess I might see this often in gaming where HUDs are on the sides (not tried yet since my gaming set up is not ready yet).
I've attached a bunch of photos of 50%-100% white and real content here:
I'm bothered by this much more than banding a low brightness (which I almost never see). How typical is this? If I try to exchange what is the chance I won't get something worse than this?
PS. Should I attach the files here instead of linking?
