I would imagine that, like pretty much any calibrator or videophile, D-Nice is of the belief that the "cleaner" the signal the better, so video processing should be kept to a minimum. Or maybe in A/B testing he just wasn't able to see a benefit. That's my guess anyway.

How truthful this is, I don't know, but I have seen prices for online purchase of the ZT60 65 inch for 3-4 grand. However, I also know of some delears will not budge below 4 grand and others nothing below 4.5 grand.
Which may be why they still have panels available in Canada.

Makes one wonder what the moving resolution is for the VT/ZT60 with motion smoother off......full 1200 lines? Im assuming so since D-nice had motion smoother off?

During this time Chad was both professional and personable answering all the questions I had .

The pre measurements were all off and all the post are now closer to where they should be. With the RGB almost flat and DE Avg. under 1. When finished it was time to try out the settings, Chad showed some content and I also checked out the settings with content we watch. The day mode with the extra brightness looks like it will help our daytime viewing as the house has many windows. I darkened the room to check out night which is the main viewing for BD movies. The detail and coloring was a lot better then before and I'm looking forward to the latest releases. The 3D mode is a little brighter, as with the depth and color while looking through the glasses more pronounced.

All in all I'm very happy with the way the ZT is now calibrated. I could go on and on but we have a movie to watch. My Thanks go out to Chad again for a job well done and answering questions I'm sure he's answered many time's before.
How many hours did you have? What was the max brightness Chad got out of your set? Curious to know!

Just checked my hours and I have 3519. The ISF day mode is at 52 and looks so much better then THX Bright Room. The THX setting on my set had the skin tones greenish with red splotches.
