I posted about the blasted band on the right side of the screen but I neglected to post about my experience thus far with my ZT otherwise.
Other than that somewhat minor flaw I’m finding the ZT to be fantastic. D-Nice calibrated and using ISF day/night modes everything I watch seems to look as beautiful or ugly as the source will allow. I also have a VT30 from 2011 and the ZT is definitely a few steps up in performance. Its brighter for one but I also feel that I’m seeing more of everything in everything I watch. More color, more detail, depth and pop. I watched Django Unchained and his blue velvet suit looked great, it had such sheen and color saturation and I know the VT30 didn’t show this as well when I watched it months ago on that set. The ZT is definitely “blacker” too, as expected and between the added brightness, better black level depth and seemingly better color saturation I couldn’t be happier. I also think the “air gapless” design is paying dividends for me as well because there were times that I can remember thinking that the VT30’s image was just a bit blurry or something and not quite as sharp as I would have liked and I think it’s possibly because I have off white walls and the reflection of the TV itself off of the walls was affecting the picture to some degree. The ZT’s image is as sharp as a tack and I think the combo of the aggressive filter and air gapless technology is really giving me the type of PQ I have always wanted from my TV.
This set is a home run in my opinion. Now if only that band will go away completely I’d be a supremely happy owner. On that front, it does seem to be getting less and less apparent but it’s still occasionally present so we’ll see.
Best to the all forum members…
