Samsung monitors of 2016 introduced (Curved, High Resolution, Gaming, Flat and Business monitor.), help me understand 125% sRGB and quantum dot - Page 362

Not really the same, backlight is always on, the darker the black color level the more visible backlight bleed becomes, changing black level does not change the backlight level/overall brightness - two different things. The closer the black level to white the more equal it becomes - you don't see any brighter spots/backlight bleed

Yes but you are entirely missing the point.

The wording on the OSD says the higher the number the more details are in black/dark areas. My results are opposite of that wording. the lower the setting the more detail is shown where the higher the number results in black crush.

But no such thing is said in the OSD. On mine it says "Adjust the brightness of the dark areas. The closer the value is to 20, the brighter the BACKLIGHT will be". Nothing about details in blacks or brightness of the blacks. It just says that on 20 backlight will be most visible.

Exactly, the brightness of the dark areas. On mine the backlight/dark area is most visible on 0 so the opposite of what it says, like I've said 3 times now. The closer to 20 I go the darker it is.

Am I being trolled? Backlight is not brightness of the dark areas! Yes, the black is most dark on 20 and most white on 0. But the backlight stays the same on ALL levels. So with white blacks the backlight is not really visible, however on very dark blacks it becomes more visible, you might see that some areas are brighter than others. Try it on a completely black screen in a dark room.

What you're saying doesn't match what the OSD is saying.

OSD says it is adjusting the brightness which brightness adjusts the backlight. When I turn the equalizer down I see the backlight increase (opposite of the OSD description). Contrast goes to **** and I see light bleed. I turn equalizer up and I see the backlight decrease and contrast improve.

Nope nope nope. That's not how any of this works.

1. OSD says it is adjusting the brightness of the dark areas -true - 0 is bright 20 is dark
2. Brightness is just a figure of speech here. Black eq DOES NOT CHANGE BRIGHTNESS the actual brightness is set by the brightness setting (duuh), it just changes the color of the blacks.
3. When you turn the equalizer down you see the backlight stay the same, it is the color of the black that changes, it is/looks brighter - but backlight is still the same - it is set to whatever your brightness is on.
4. Contrast does go bad(true) but what you see is just a grey color - this is not light bleed (however it might be uneven).
5. You turn equalizer up and you see the backliht stay the same and the black turn more black and less grey - the contrast does improve - true.

Setting the color of the black/black level or whatever you call it, has absolutely nothing to do with with backlight. It is jus as if you were setting the blue color to be displayed as red.

I am with the Feb 2017

Do the following test, view this wallpaper (http://www.wallpaperawesome.com/wallpapers-awesome/wallpapers-nature-flowers-leaves-falls-flashlights-awesome/wallpaper-dark-green-leave-macro.jpg) on full screen with you browser (F11 for full screen mode) or set it as a desktop wallpaper and see if you can spot any flickering lines at the top or bottom of the monitor.

Do this @144hz and then @120hz

Is it obvious or very hard to see? I stared at the wallpaper as my background for over two minutes and didn't see anything flickering except for my eyes getting tired from not blinking lol

I don't think I have a single dead pixel / dust spot. I used this website and checked with all the different colored background and couldn't spot anything http://jasonfarrell.com/misc/deadpixeltest.php . My laptop / monitors in the past I can spot easily when they had dead pixels so I don't think I am going blind.


Also, I found this option in the service menu when checking for my firmware called "PixelShift" which you can turn on or off.. no one has mentioned it in this thread yet. Can you guys check your service menu (put contrast / brightness to 0 and hold down the button for 5 seconds) and tell me what was the default setting is?

I was trying to get out of the service menu and may have changed the setting without knowing what the default was.... I also accidentally changed the language to Chinese lol.

Do you guys know what that pixelshift option does?

My firmware is 1004.0 and checksum is BDDB?

I got another one, this time manufactured in March. I compared it side by side with my November version; funnily enough the Nov one has a green tint, apparently. Anyways, there's still backlight bleed.

Default is off.

My guess is this is an option for always on displays to shift the screen to prevent burn-in. Plasma TVs have an option called pixel shift and that's exactly what it does.
