mike55 - Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - linkDoes anyone know of any drives planning on using 3-bit-per-cell, 128 Gb NAND dies (dice?)?
Kristian Vättö - Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - linkSo far the only drive to use 3-bit-per-cell (TLC) NAND is the Samsung SSD 840. At least both Samsung and IMFT have 128Gb TLC but as of today I have not heard it being used in an SSD. The successor of SSD 840 will probably move to 128Gb TLC NAND to cut costs even more but that's at least a quarter away (this is just a guess, we don't have any info yet),
mike55 - Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - linkThe funny thing about the ambiguous picture modes Samsung uses is that they're not even consistent among Samsung products. Natural mode on my Samsung TV makes people look like Nicki Minaj.
Also about the dynamic contrast thing. I think Brian's talking about CE dimming where it dims the backlight based on the brightness of content on the screen. Of course this makes absolutely no sense to me with a edge-lit LCD. If you rename the input to PC, it disables some of the image processing, including CE dimming. Unfortunately, it disables a lot of the features like motion interpolation. Fortunately, most of Samsung's features serve only to make the picture worse somehow. I actually get less input lag with the input renamed to PC than with game mode on.
Brian Klug - Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - linkInteresting, I'll have to try this. I've almost given up on ever having just a simple 1:1 dumb monitor mode on my Samsung 55-inch.
Zandros - Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - linkCan we pretty please get a higher resolution image for the podcast feed? It looks ugly in Downcast. ;)
jeffkibuule - Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - linkYes please. Much appreciated.
darwinosx - Wednesday, May 1, 2013 - linkAgree, its pretty awful.

freedom4556 - Tuesday, April 30, 2013 - linkI think that whole server is down. If you look at the links, they point to a server named images.anandtech.com
