Not funny because this is truly literally depressing. I had FIVE elites I was considering buying and apparently picked the wrong one yet again. I kept almost buying a different one, for less money, but the guy took forever to close the deal so I bought this other one. I'm sure D0nicem wont do this, but if I had someone who would do it..... someone could check out the east TN 101 from ebay and see if it is working properly. And if it were D-nice I would then pay him to calibrate it and I'd sell both of my 111s. But that one has nearly 10,000 hours, so it would still be risky.
Again, my situation is far different than any of yours. ALL other tvs HURT my head and I mean hurt BIG time every single day. ALl plasmas, all leds, heck even CCFL LCDs sometimes were doing it. It's from reflections sometimes, sometimes it's flicker, sometimes I have bno clue what it is. The elites ALSO hurt my head EVERY single day. But it's low enough intensity where I can stand it. So my only choices are get a USED elite or get a pile of crap low end LCD which would hurt my head less, possibly, but have a picture worth crap. And nobody has been helpful as far as volunteering to help me. Maybe I should try to find a local calibrator who would do s QYUICK check for under $100. Then I'd know if it's me or the tvs. But the only ay it's me is if my vision got worse in the past year. otherwise, it's flat out the tv because the pannys were 100 times darker in my memory.
