I'm debating which TV to get. I currently have a 42" LG60 and am wanting something better for blu ray - particularly shadow detail and black level. I'm the noob that went in to buy my current TV, saw BB's "calibrated" vs "non-calibrated" examples and wanted the non-calibrated image. I've learned since then, and now find most of the images BB displays quite replusive. I've done my own calibrations on the current TV and it looks pretty good, but it's time for bigger and better... I apologize for being the noob here, but I really need the help and come here for legit answers from people who know far more than me.
I watch a large amount of sports and blu-ray. 58" is the largest my better half will allow us to get, so I'm limited and cannot go 65"
. I will
have the TV professionally ISF calibrated (not by BB, obviously). I want the best END PICTURE possible. While I
may not notice some flaws, I don't want my videophile friends walking away saying "it looks pretty good, but..."
That said: Which TV do I get between these two? From what I've found, the calibrated image is fairly similar between the two. The main difference seems to be 24p playback. I'm running a single HDMI feed into my TV from a Denon AVR590 receiver, which is receiving a HDMI feed from a Samsung BD-P1500 (and other things, but my main concern is the blu ray playback). This outputs at 1080/24p. I've heard that a decent blu-ray player will essentially do a progressive scan which can minimize the jutter and hitching of the s1's "24p" playback with 3:2 pulldown @60Hz. I don't know how accurate this is.
Bottom line: with my setup, how noticeable will the differences in image quality and film accuracy be between the two TV's? I can get the s1 for a really good deal and the V10 for a fair amount more (I can't find one currently for as good of a deal looking at % off regular price). Both are within my price range, although if the differences are detectable only w/ equipment but not the naked eye, I'd rather save the money and go S1. Thoughts and opinions please?!?
