^^^Glad you were able to get rid of it. For some reason the ZTs are more susceptible to IR compared to the VTs

The VT & ZT are the same panel, so any perceived & reported difference in IR is purely anecdotal.
Edllguy and chunon like this.

After watching a lot of football this weekend, my IR is almost gone. I ran the screen swipe for serveral hours on Saturday which made a big difference.

Glad to see everyone is happy with their sets even with the annoying IR, which mine goes away rather quickly and I do not usually just stick to one channel anyway. But if the set is defective I will do my best to get my refund or try to sell (sell only if worst comes to worst) and try to see if any 8500s will still be around. I am still waiting on the repair company because they were suppose to come yesterday but never did because no one told me they were waiting for the parts to come in. So i took a day off because I was told they were servicing it Dec.17th and I call them and Im not even on the record. So now im playing the waiting game. We will see what happens. At this point if there are no 8500 left if my situation does come to refund and finding a new set I have no idea where I would even start.

My final question is that the VT is about 5 lamberts brighter than the ZT, does this equate to being "much brighter" in real world content? I had a VT for a short period and if i remember it did seem brighter (not by much) so I didnt know how much 5 lamberts would actaully affect the brightness factor of the ZT compared to the VT?

thanks again

Has anyone compared the picture sharpness of the 60" and 65" ZT60? I'm wondering if 60" is the sweet spot for 1080P? At which point (e.g. 65, 70, 75) do the limitations of 1080P become apparent at normal viewing distances. And I'm not talking about the charts which show our ability to see details at a particular viewing distance...I'm looking for more of a subjective opinion (if that makes any sense). Why is it that Pioneer never went 65" with the Elites? It's also interesting that LG with their New 1080P OLED chose 55 inch as the standard size.

Personally, I've always liked the perceived increase in sharpness of a 50" 1080P set, especially while watching cable. Sorry, if this is a dumb newbie question.
