Using the HDMI PC mode makes text even better though for those with the superior visual acuity such as yourself.
You bite. Ouch
What I can see is an issue for me with a Display of this caliber.
I just want a display that does native display with clear dot by dot implementation. This one doesn't. My next display will. It would be nice if Pioneer made one. I hope they do in 2009.
Well some calibrators even find the sharpness control marginally useful on some displays and for some content. My last pro calibrator, David Abrams found it useful on my 6020.
That's nice. It can help sharpen the fuzzy dots. I found Movie mode with some edge enhancement looks a bit better.
It is amusing how these Pioneer Engineers sit down and come up with visual features that are clearly designed as you say only to detract from the image.
Then as I posted earlier pro reviewers and calibrators don't even agree among themselves and some actually decide they occasionally prefer to use these features
The also came up with Sport, Dynamic, and all the other silly modes the primary purpose of which is to wow the folk in a showroom so they can sell panels. Do you watch it in dynamic mode? Why not, the engineers made it, it must be good.
Hey if a profession review likes it, who am I to complain about a poor dot by dot implementation
I suppose you feel that Pioneer decided to stick NE Kuro owners with Enhancer mode 2 only to detract from their detail level. Amazingly then AVGuide for instance had a review up (which can still be found on google cache
) where a calibrator actually posts a reason for choosing Enhancer mode 2
on a Pro 1150:
I do not know what they were thinking, do you?
However, there seemed to be a concerted effort to differentiate the panels. One way, it seems, was to cripple the xx20's. That worked
I got it, you are happy with your panel. That is fine. However, that just makes the implementation OK by you. BTW, professional reviewers also check these panels ability to resolve detail. What are they thinking? Why not just site back and say, hey it looks good enough for me. Some people like facts. It is for those people, that I post here. Had I known this in advance, I might have made a different choice.
Clearly as I said though you're a more demanding viewer. Just curious though, is that Lumagen external video processor you use one of these
that cost as much or more by itself than a 6020?
If so then it's no wonder a 6020 can't make it pass your kids room.
Yep. That's the one. I do not use the Lumagen with this panel.
However, it might make sense to buy a DVDO edge, that is of course, that requires a very good dot by dot implementation
