"Brightness fluctuations kill this TV"1.0 starson by Zacowacko
Pros: None since it acts like a strobe light.
Cons: Samsung will not fix this with a firmware update as Panasonic did
Summary: This TV has constant brightness fluctuations, entire screen, not just blacks. Samsung replaced all my boards and my entire panel, still does it. Panasonic had same problem with this year TV and fixed with a firmware update, Samsung chooses to ignore us and hope we don't notice. Look for the thread in avs forum "DoeS your 2011 Samsung plasma have brightness pops". There are hundreds of people posting that they do and no fix has been made. Don't know hi CNET hasn't noticed. I would post a link but would most likely get deleted, easy find with search. It is annoying as can be, brings you out of what you are
watching and washes out picture.
