Well, thats something I noticed…Amongst other things.
It’s back in the box. I’m on hold with Currys now, and will be returning it on Monday. Sadly. Reasons:
– Global auto dimming that cannot be turned off. Ever. As I use my TV as a monitor and display for my gaming PC, this makes it unusable. Got the Firefox start page up or Google? Perfect brightness. Load up Facebook or this forum or anything with a darker theme and the entire image darkens, to a point where it’s constantly fluctuating.
– Colours are impossible to get right. I spent every day messing with it and I couldn’t get the image anywhere near as good as my old set.
– Non uniform scaling from 1080p to 4k on my PC. This is a fault with NVidia as well – no option for integer scaling. Result is a blurry mess.
– Rounded pixels.
– motion blur that seems random
It got to today after getting home from work and struggling to get the image right to enjoy a game and I just realised I would never be happy with it. I’ve put my old set back up and the difference is staggering.
So yeah…meh. The hunt goes on I guess. I’ll just buy a new graphics card instead and downsample.
