I'm trying to understand the value of this statement. Oh wait, there is none. The only purpose this serves is to bait two people.
But what the heck, I'll bite since Mr. Kuro is referring to me as 'one of its loudest cheerleaders' in terms of the Elite. I didn't see where he said the shadow detail was better than the Elite Mr. Kuro. And please show me where I said that a nearly full screen worth of cyan was not noticeable. Point out that post to me Mr. Kuro. What's that, you can't? Why not stick to the truth? The fact is I HAVE SAID that yes, if you displayed a large expanse of cyan, the error could be seen. Who was the first on AVS to point out the cyan error? Oh wait Mr. Kuro, it was ME. I don't hide the faults of displays I own.
What I did say was that large expanses of cyan are not often seen and thus the error is not often seen. I'll stick to that since THAT is the truth.
As a sidebar, for David to group the Elite and the 8500 together in terms of black levels, is wrong. It is simply inaccurate. We have one owner of an 8500 who also had the Elite and can testify that the Elite was significantly darker than 8500.
Oh, and BTW Mr. Kuro, he still somehow included the Elite in his 'best ever' grouping of displays he compared. A beatdown? Okeedokey.
As for the VT60, he noted that it looked 'noticeably duller' than the Elite and the 8500. That I've seen myself mutliple times and as recently as today...and you can see that in a totally dark room...even in outer space. The ABL is very aggressive and beats back (talk about a beatdown) bright scenes.
In terms of the 'best display', I'll take the very weird approach that it's entirely up to the viewer. The day that I simply follow numbers to determine what's 'best', is the day I stop going to retailers to audition these sets myself.
And is that the theme song I hear once again that Mr. Kuro always brings to the fore...."The wheels on the bus go round and round...............
