Q9 55” 2018 model
Local dimming on low -this stops dark appearing
Some eco mode on -this stops eyes burning out due to bright whites
Best settings I’ve found yet & can now see detail in darker areas without annoying dark shadows appearing
realised using settings that dim screen to much causes a whole host of problems start mainly local dimming related even with dimming set to LOW
turn off all eco options except ambiant light detection to around minimum 30 just to account for low light rooms
scteen still will seem to bright if like me your use to non Qled , I’m getting a brill picture now without annoyance ,
still getting use to sometimes bright whites but I guess this is a part of the realism
After viewing the TV for a while I am still happy with the standard setting.
Eco (min backlight 40). Night time TV backlight is too bright otherwise.
Bumped up the sharpness to 26. Make the images a little crisper.
All sources come in via HDMI ports. Audio now goes out via ARC to take advantage of higher bandwidth DD5.1 and Netflix HQ audio. Sounds better than optical.
Aquaman on built in Apple TV app was stunning!
