Is my new TV bugged ?
« on: 10:17 PM - 03/18/19 »
Last week I bought a new TV I am planning to use it for both my PS4 and PC.

A few days ago, I connected it to my PC to test how editing in photoshop would be. I loaded up some pictures. First there were pictures of nature. I noticed that the sky was brighter than it was on my monitor while the land was darker than it was on my monitor. I then loaded some pictures, this time it was people and their faces were brighter than their bodies and arms.

I tried messing with all the settings and nothing. Then I realized that my TV is slightly brighter on the top then it is on the bottom. I took a photo of the screen with notepad window while is fully white. I then lowered the gamma and I'm pretty sure I got my answer. Here are the photos:







This darkened area that the arrow is pointing towards is exactly where the brightness is lower and exactly why I was saying that people's faces were brighter than their body and the sky is brighter than it should be compared to the horizon.



Should i return / replace this TV ?
It is a 75 inch NU7100


I haven't owned a new TV in like 7 years. All I used to have is some old piece of trash that I never used but I figured why not buy a giant TV and use as an extra monitor. Anyway is this how TVs are supposed to be now ? I kind of want to return it to be honest.

The TV is not wall mounted or anything yet. I just have it on the side to test it so I can still easily return it. Or can I ? How the F am I gonna get this to the store LOL. I don't have a truck.

IMO you've got a shoddy panel.

All the reviews I read before I bought my TV were positive about image uniformity. I have the Sony Bravia  KD43X8309C, which has a Samsung panel in it. Apart from darker edges and 200 nits brightness (common with budget 4K panels) it's a great TV.

I'd exchange your Sammy if I were you, hoping that lightning doesn't strike twice.

Exchange it for another TV with a Samsung panel. They're great. You were just unlucky and got a poor one that slipped through QC.
