But for very short fades to black, I think this will give you a very good illusion of complete black. Beyond a few seconds, your eyes will adjust and you'll see the glow. For the majority of content where there are brighter objects in the scene, this will likely give you the best black bars possible because of the crazy high ANSI contrast. Good stuff.
I think the more appropriate question is how bright must you set your bias/room lighting before the black bars disappear. I mean I can get my LCD to look like it's completely off if I have some lights on in the room. i'd love to get the effect with no lights on whatsoever, but i'd still be thrilled to get the effect dim lighting. I mean I've already installed the pot lights just to make watching on my old plasma bearable...
i'm starting to get sucked into the hype hear for sure. can't wait to hear some more reviews, and if everything being said is confirmed I might have to go for it.
