|Bill_k||The purpose of running the slides is to age the phosphor colors evenly, and that's the reason that they suggest running them before doing any calibration. Otherwise the colors will shift over time which would require the calibration to be entirely redone. I did not run the slides at all, rather just used the CNET calibration settings out of the box except for lowering the contrast and brightness settings to 50 or less and have been very careful about the content that I watch. Using this approach and periodically running the scrolling bars option I have not experienced any screen burn-in or image retention issues. Of course as always, YMMV.|

If so, how? USB flash drive? I notice when I turn the TV on the first minute or so on occasion I'll see the Samsung logo in the screen.|

Will apply CNET calibration after panel prep for 100 hours, hopefully everything goes well.

|superstition||The "buzz" is fan noise, a drawback from the skinny panels people are so hot for. If people would not obsess about skinny TVs, then larger, thicker more efficient fans could be used to cool the TVs --- resulting in less noise.|
