brightness at 100% would be awful. Realistically, I keep mine at about 40-50%

The only place 100% looks good is in the apple store.

I thought I kept mine high at 60 to 75% but 100 is too high unless your outside. You do have great taste in displays though. I have the 55St30 and I love the picture quality. I'm thinking about upgrading to the 65ST50 this year. Unforunately the VT series is a little out of my budget.

Ditto, I keep mine in the same place. I just turned mine up to 100% and I think I burnt a spot on the back of my eye!

100% is not only blindingly bright, but it uses too much battery life for nothing.

I have mine set at around 40% but with auto brightness on.

Not at all. The sensor isn't on all the time, it only comes on for around a second whenever you open an app or go to the home screen. I guess it could if you were out in the sun all day and it turned the brightness right up to compensate, but you couldn't use the screen with low brightness on those conditions anyway.

Mine is at about 80%. Keeping it lower is dull and boring. I get 7 hours and some change of usage.
