Got mine hooked up yesterday, grey uniformity is affecting white texts on a grey background such as youtube app. I keep seeing patches of brownish when using any apps that have grey backgrounds like Youtube and Netflix. other than that it's amazing. watched Our Planet on Netflix and some 4K videos on Youtube (especially colorful birds) it's mesmerizing.
But the grey issue really bugs me
I think this has to do with the Active Full Array settings. Try it on Low or Off. I was also seeing this issue on certain videos I was trying, to test out HDR and 4k colour on Youtube. When Active Full Array is on Medium, I see a lot of glowing on bright objects/words on black backgrounds. Having it on low or off makes it a bit easier to see.

I know this is really a personal choice, but did anyone use the calibration guide from rtings and keep the same values? I found their suggested settings to be very dull in color. I changed mine to vivid, and just lowered the backlight and brightness. If I could make the colors in their "calibrated dark" suggestion pop more, then I would be more inclined to leave it on that setting.

What calibration settings is everyone else using?

I just got mine up today. Replaced the PQ65 I had there. I know they are almost the same TV but I’ve watched a couple movies (Dolby vision, standard HD and streaming hockey) and I’m surprised overall I’ve noticed a sharper picture; and I’ve always enjoyed the PQ65.

I’ve found the calibrated dark setting to the the best and lower backlight to around 40-45. You have to give your eyes some time to adjust. Vivid is bright and super saturated. It pops but it’s not natural.

Rtings rated the p65 to have better quality after calibration. How did you calibrate your tvs? Did you notice any panel issues or other differences?

There is a calibrated and dark setting built into the TV. I have not had my TVs professionally calibrated. When you’re looking for it you can notice some faint banding on a white background; like when streaming hockey with fast movement. I have never noticed it while watching quality content. Like I said, the main surprise for me has been the sharpness. I loved the picture on my PQ65 and I don’t know how to account for the difference but this PX65 has really impressed me. Especially considering it cost less than the PQ65 did 9 months ago.

Is anyone else still waiting for theirs after ordering on black Friday? The last update on "Alero Worldwide" tracking was Dec 3rd (6 days ago) and just says " Shipping WLI eta DA 12/09/19".

Mines delivering today (next hour or so) - and obviously it's raining haha.

DA means Distribution Agent, they'll call you once they get the TV and schedule a delivering date. They called me Thursday (5th), scheduling for Today (9th)
huuuu! (¬'-')¬ C-('-'Q) straight!

Alero passed my TV onto a local delivery agent up island (Standard Delivery out of Nanaimo) and while the tracking information from Alero (OnTime Tracking Software) was abysmmal both in description and accuracy the local delivery agent was excellent. I was prepared for a problem however they called and mentioned a delivery window the next day. I called back to explain that that was a problem as I had to leave the house towards the end of their window. He called back again and said he had put my delivery as their first stop instead.

Kudos to Standard Delivery......oh and yes, so far the TV is stellar! Set to Calibrated Dark.

I got mine today but the top of the screen shows pixelated image on fixed pictures. Like when I pause netflix, top left of the screen image start to degrade over time and in 2-3 mins the corner gets pixelated. The moment the image change it goes away.
This is concerning for a TV of this price, I am on the verge of calling costco to take this back. Anyone else has seen this on their TVs?

I think that might be Netflix itself switching to a lower resolution on pause.

Can't wait to try out this TV based on all the positive reviews. I'm still waiting to receive mine 2-weeks after purchasing it on Black Friday.

Costco.ca shipping appears to be hit or miss. I've had some things arrive fairly quickly... not this TV though. I finally got an update from Alero Worldwide a few days ago (after I inquired) and found out it wasn't with the delivery agent (DA) yet.

Now it's been received by the delivery agent, some company called "Baltic New Brunswick" but I haven't heard a word from them yet after having it in their possession for 2 days. I don't think I'll be ordering any large purchases from costco.ca anymore. Shipping something from Quebec to New Brunswick should not take 2+ weeks with piss poor updates on the tracking.

Nope, I just confirmed running a bunch of other test that there is a stripe of pixels on that area that fail to change fast and will cripple the picture.
Didn’t expect this sort of low quality from a $1500 TV. Money better spent on a Sony where they produce some decent reliable TVs. Maybe trying another Vizio in 5yr, still too early in my mind now.
