Alright, screw it. I've had it with my 60" S30...Somebody in my family actually wants to buy it for $650, i can use that and put the extra cash towards a 55" 60. XP I already spent $850 on my used 60" S30 in Nov last year, and to get even a semi decent DIY Calman 5 calibration i'd have to spend another $530 and even more to get a used DuoScan(whatever you call them)
I don't need 60" anyways, 55" is the sweet spot imo in terms of 720p/1080p content and sitting close to about 11 feet eye distance wise. Now, I don't plan on using cinema mode, it's definitly going to be custom & game, or whatever the replacement is.Does the S60 lack gamma controls? and is the gamma at about 2.2/medium in the other modes outside of Cinema? Plus is there any color pushing going on? Apperantly the black levels are outstanding on this set and the same could be said for the color gamut and brightness, however what i'm really worried about is the auto dimming and if it's agressive.
on my S30 it's actually on the mild side, i can never really tell when it happens to be honest. the transition is subtle, unlike my previous 2012 panny X5 which was super aggressive.....The difference was night and day.
