Anyone been able to break the UPP price protection anywhere. I just saw this set. For where I sit (about 9-11 feet) I can use it as A MONITOR and not squint.... kinda nice. I want to use it, as I have with my 73" DLP that must go, as both HTPC, Gaming system, and monitor. Moving back 3 feet (to 9-11) makes seeing the 70" elite impossible for me
I was also impressed at the black level (for non-local dimming). When you have a good computer (Ivy Bridge laptop) setup, I was shocked as to how the white and black test patters came out with just basec in store settings (movie mode, backlight at normla etc).
Granted the Elite was better (next to it) but you could really only tell in 100% dark room.
I would have assumed this is the 80" panel blown up, however this looks like a different panel.
Has anyone noticed this? How good the black level is with simply settings vs. the 80" LE844??? Also that damn "blue" LED tint is not present.
WIth the 60" Elite next to it, dual outputing a computer display, I was impressed. Granted, in the store the colors looked not as saturated but that is what calibration is for. The fact you get "black" next to white and UNIFORM white/RED on patterns made me think this was not just an 844 panel with 10 more inches.
