many people including myself are complaining about this so called feature. I have read in other forms that it can be turned off by going into the service menu.
I know HDTech has inquired with Samsung about it but he has not posted back regarding what Samsung is going to do, if anything about this.
I own the 55 inch 7000 model, I live in the US and I have the same issue as you described.
Other than that I love the TV.
I just bought the UE40B8050 200Hz in Denmark and im having major problems with the dimming feature.
Each time there is a dark scene it dims the light so much it is hard to se the image.
Anyone with a solution for this ?
No matter what setting i use or turn power saving off it is the same.
Also tried the new firmware with same result.
