Or is it just two ways of accomplishing the same thing?
Example: Cell Light 20/Contrast 85 vs Cell Light 15/Contrast 95.
Not sure if the above produces exactly the same light output but you get the idea.
15/95 for reasons stated in above posts.

I'm actually running 10/84 for Cal-Night and 14/89 for Cal-Day. My viewing environment is almost always very dark. Those numbers seem low, professionally calibrated of course, but I'm curious to see what Chad B comes up with next month on his trip to California.

Also keep in mind that Chad B may not mind the effects on the ten point controls at such low contrast levels as much as us hobbyists do. He is more experienced after all.

No, but I'm sure Chad B will measure everything before he starts doing what he does and I'll post back after that happens.

I've always wondered why my settings seem to be so different when compared to others posted here but the display looks fantastic, I don't feel as if I'm missing any luminance or brightness. As I noted, my viewing is pretty close to 95% darkened room(lights off, black curtained) and I don't like a blazing white-hot image anyway.

The display was originally calibrated by Robert Busch and was color calibrated to match a Joe Kane spec'ed/setup projector(I don't recall the exact details).
