"Brightness fluctuations ruin this TV."1.0 starson by noseeb13
Pros: Looks great when brightness is consistent
Cons: Brightness fluctuations
Summary: Problem has gotten worse over time and no matter what settings I adjust or what type of content I watch (Blu ray, DIRECTV, play video games) dark scenes will sometimes brighten up and then return to normal. Some movies like Super 8 are unwatchable on this set.
I have been working with Samsung reps and techs for 3 months now and they are very dismissive over the issue saying it is not the TV but ALL the content I am watching. I don't have these issues with my other TVs or looking at the same content on the comparable Panasonic Plasma.
This is the last Samsung product I will ever buy, shame I had to learn my lesson over an expensive TV.
