Does this mean that when I go to sell my 8g 150 in the spring of 2010 to partake in the luxury of an 11g elite that my decision will all be for not??? Man, how is one ever to be satisfied with a purchase decision...

I do not know what meter The Perfect Vision used in their review. You have to remember that light meter sensitivity will vary and you need something that is accurate down to 0.001fL to measure the 8Gs.


I thought the glass was the same between the elites vs non elites? The only thing I see different concerning the panel with the elites vs non elites was the color filter. Does the color filter contribute to the lower fL measurements? Or is something else a factor?

Because the colorfilter it bonded to the glass, technically the glass is different.

If one does not modify the RGB Low SM values on the non-Elites, I can see how a 5080 will end up with a 0.008fL reading

I took some more pictures of the PDP-6020Fd and here they are:




This is what it looks like in a pitch black room with no input. As you can see, its almost impossible to tell that the TV is even on (other than the blue LED):

All I could see was the blue LED light, great pics by the way. Any buzzing on your screen or the the normal plasma hum?

Yea, I am getting a little bit of buzzing. Its not loud though.
I can't hear it during regular viewing but when surfing the net of my PS3 I can hear it change pitch as the screen changes from dark to bright. Especially when showing an all white screen.
This is the first plasma I have ever had that buzzes like this. My 5080 and my Phillips didn't make a peep.
Is there any way to stop the buzz??
How loud does pioneer consider a defect??

On something like an 9G Kuro Elite would you go with a (God forbid) BB-Mag Audio or would you buy for $1000 less from a dealer who's outside the 250 mile radius?

Thanks.

I am having a hard time finding the perfect settings that I like. But then again I am no expert at calibration or anything like that.
I think I will be happier when D-nice releases his Reference settings.

Disclaimer: This is intended as a joke and in no way obligates Robert to provide firewood with the Pioneer 9th generation PDP-6020FD.

Loud meaning you can hear it from your setting distance, and it depends on the tech they would send to your home on whether it is to be serviced or not.
By the way the picture of the Hulk on your 6020 is freakin sick, excellent PQ.

Yea I can hear it from about 9 feet away when surfing the net.
I think the pictures would have been alot better if I would have used a better camera. the camera I have blurrs out unless you hold it completely still. so what may look a little blurry is really the camera.

Is this a trick question?

I'll like to see your panel after you do a DVE Basics BD disc calibration. It would be interesting to see the settings the disc came up with and your observations on pq.

Couldn't have used anyone cooler like Optimus Prime to sell Pioneer. Is it the in thing now flipping the HDMI Ports sideways, alot of manufacturers are doing that now.

I mean this in a good way. I feel like D-Nice is like Tom Hank's character in "Saving Private Ryan" well respected by his peers, but nobody knows much about him. Should we start a separate thread and try to guess what D-Nice's real job is? All jokes aside, it has been great to receive so much info from him and the time he dedicates to this website. Thanks D-Nice.
