On the LG you just have to set the input label to PC (don't rename it, simply select PC) and it resolves full 4:4:4 chroma. I've tested it personally as I'm very sensitive to it, especially as I game a lot and seeing jaggy low res red and magenta text is a nightmare for me.

What kills the lg though is the shocking uniformity at the lower IRE of the greyscale. Yes the mll or rather lack of on the lg is great, but in "normal" viewing with a small basis light the blacks of the VT60 are so deep that I don't notice the difference.

The illusion obviously breaks in a pitch black room where I can see the phosphors glowing and blacks looking like a dark grey instead.
I've since purchased and have found your post to be true. I agree. I don't like doing night maps etc because of the IRE issues with banding.

It's a real shame about the uniformity, as I can see vertical banding on dark scenes. If the uniformity was better it would be as close to "perfect" as possible as its nice not having buzzing, line bleed, dithering etc.

Apologies also, at the time I quoted your post, I hadn't realised it was actually a couple of months ago that you had posted that

Vt60 owners. Is it worth it to get the vt60 pro calibrated? Also does, whoever calibrate the set matters?

A calibration makes a massive difference. A high end display deserves to be calibrated to get the most of it.

I'd also say that calibrator are certainly not equal. I had a terrible experience with a calibrator a few years ago (I since calibrate myself with a meter and chromapure).

If you mention where you're located, people can give you some recommendations. There are some very good calibrator that are members of this forum and come highly recommended.
