In fact, it was the VT & ZT that were significantly clipping white and was one of the main reasons why the calibrators couldn't raise the brightness any more than what they had dialed in. One of the tests showed this very clearly. Yet the 8500 aced this test and showed all the detail that was there

It was good hear your thought on this.
I got home from vacation Friday just in time to watch the Shootout. Today, I found out that you were there. I would have like to have seen you streaming on my computer, What were you wearing?
