Has anyone had the chance to view a 60" & 70" side-by-side in a dimly-lit room? If so can the 70" come close to the black level, contrast, and uniformity of the 60"? I have seen one 70" in the bright lights of Best Buy, where it's rather difficult to say, and I don't think I'm going to find a 70" locally to watch in limited lighting without buying one. I saw the 60" today with reasonably low room lighting, and it seemed rather impressive compared to my 60" SXRD. The contrast and uniformity of their 60" display model exceeded my apparently limited expectations, and I would have been willing to trade some performance for a bigger version. Based on watching two 60" models I'll buy the W850B, but I'm not sure if the 70" is a step up or down. Reading this thread my impression has been that many performance criticisms worth considering seem to have come from 70" owners, so I'm trying to decide if I want to chance purchasing the bigger size or simply go with the 60" that appears likely to meet my requirements.
Edit: Aside from red appearing different than the XBRs, after looking at another 70", I couldn't find much to question about the W850B from 4 sets in stores. Since I started out shopping 65" TVs, I decided to take the chance on having a 70" delivered next week. I'm still not convinced the 70" might perform as well as the 60" I watched, but possibly dealing with a return seemed better than wondering how the 70" compares.
