It depends on the panel and how its calibrated from the factory. One click +- in brightness is fine.So i have returned my C8 and got a C9 instead, i love the TV but one thing i noticed is that i have to set my brightness to 48 / 49 to get perfect blacks, that was not the case with the C8 which actually crushed blacks a bit.
I am wondering if i actually got used to crushed blacks or if my C9 panel is really brighter and needs the brightness to be lowered a bit.
What is your experience with this? Anyone else lowering their brightness settings to get perfect blacks?
