Quick question. I am coming from a samsung qled, and I am worried about firmware updates degrading PQ (i have experienced this firsthand on the samsung)...Is the latest C9 FW good to go picture wise from earlier firmware versions? No color or brigthness nerfing, etc?
I've seen you on the CX posts and remember reading about your frustrations.
Congrats on the C9! Fingers crossed for a clean panel! (Was your CX uniform?)
I've been around this stuff a while too, and because of the occasional problems associated with firmware, I try to avoid firmware updates like the plague.
Not sure how up to date your new one will be. Mine is a 03.xxx something. Not even a 04 something.
Because I don't have ANY problems with my set, I don't want to do an update that I cannot "revert".
If everything ends up looking good on your set and you don't encounter glitches etc, you won't need to worry.
My C9 was built in Dec 2019 and I purchased it in March 2020. If this set had glitches like the CX currently does, they have long since worked them out. Everything works beautifully on my set so far.
Please let me know if the C9 looks and has motion as good as the CX. You are one of the first to go reverse on this. Your first hand experience about this will be priceless.
