One extremely annoying “feature” of these TVs that I’ve found out after purchase is the “CE Dimming” feature. This is not the “ECO Dimming” or anything you can control; It’s hard-coded into the certain picture modes (Standard and Native, at least). This feature is something that will reduce the backlighting when there is mostly black on the screen. (For example, if there is 100% brightness white text on a pure black screen, it would actually display at a fraction of that intensity due to the backlight dimming). I’ve read that this is to reduce the appearance of light bleeding in from the edges, since it’s edge-lit. This “feature” annoys me significantly, particularly because I am not allowed to control it. After searching around I found out this is called “CE Dimming” and you can hack it by going into the service menu (you can find the instructions online yourself), however messing with it apparently voids the warranty. The only picture mode I found that doesn’t use this is “Movie” mode. But, movie mode looks terrible with its default settings.
