Had my 65" ZT60 delivered today. Beautiful TV. Its #1385.
My main room is pretty bright on a sunny day (like today). Reflections on the glass are no worse than the 55" Sammy LED its replacing - perhaps a little better. Totally watchable, but some of that comes to placement and size of the reflections due to my windows. Luckily I live in Seattle so its mostly overcast. 8)
I turned pretty much all the various motion and enhancement settings off. Some of the picture settings are a bit dark, but I am watching Blurays with THX Cinema and I can see everything fine. Looks very natural. THX Bright made it look too contrasty with odd colors in the faces. EBU felt too dark for day viewing in here, I'll try it again tonight. The image generally looks a lot more natural than my Samsung. Oh and its great to have all the picture settings available with Game Mode on (which I will most of the time).
The thing I am really noticing compared to my local dimming Samsung is that there's no bloom around the light to dark transitions. I tried the Dark Black Level and its really nice, but I'll leave it on Light until I break it in. Light makes the blacks a little greyish, but again no worse than my old TV.
Oh, and for some reason 24fps caused bad lag on the old Sammy (like out of sync with voice lag) which is totally gone with this TV.
Onto some gaming tests and then I'll watch my first 3D at home a bit later on.
