I'm also hoping there are no streaks as I'm sure Pioneer fixed whatever was
causing it. You'd notice it with bright solid content that moved vertically.Question for DAMAC
Being that you owned a 5080 which had brighter whites, generally, than my
past Pro-150FD, would you say the 6020's whites are on par or even better
than what you experienced on the 5080?
Thanks for all your impressions and congratulations!
I would say brightness is about the same between the 5080 and the 6020. I returned my 5080 about 2 weeks ago, so I am going by memory (I did watch A LOT of content on the 5080 while I had it, though).
I'll put it this way. There is nothing that the 5080 did better than the 6020 (brightness, whites, or anything else). I'll have to say that the 6020 doesn't completely kick the 5080's butt in terms of blacks, contrast, and color (accuracy and saturation), but there is no arguing that it is better.
I also had a Samsung LN52A650 for several weeks, and the colors on it really popped. I returned it because of the weaker black levels and the overly bright whites when the settings where best for black levels (plus I could never get the skintones to look nearly as good as on the Kuros). The 6020 has that vivd color pop that I liked on the Sammy LCD, but it has none of the inferiorities that bothered me about it.
I have been recording some content to view on the 6020. Some shows that had some real pop to them that looked fantastic included The Stanley Cup Finals, The Price Is Right Million Dollar Spectacular, Ice Road Truckers, and a couple NFL games I had. Despite the desire like everyone here for inky blacks, I still like a lot of pop in my picture with the appropriate content. I really think the 6020 offers that.
I can't wait to see what happens in the next 100 hours as thing breaks in.
