To answer your question, even 0.004 should be great. What would concern me more is floating blacks where the black level rises with moderate to high apl scenes instead of being fixed to extremely low values like on the 2013 Panasonics
Oh, I didn't know floating blacks was an issue this year with Sammy.
How about ABL? I see it extremely rarely on my on my S64 and even then it's a slow dim and not a bother to me really. If it was "popping" all the time I'd be concerned. I know Will said it does have ABL, but as I've pointed out that means different things to different people. A slow dim is one thing, but a pop is another.
The biggest drawback to the S60 is the dithering. I'm surprised more people aren't bothered by it, unless mine is particularly noisy. I found putting the panel on mid brightness actually helped vs low and I went to brightness -2. This put my settings slightly off of posted calibrations, but I couldn't handle the dithering in dark scenes.
Also, the motion is bothering me, but I have to determine what' sgoing on there first. Some judder wouldn't be an issue, but this like a slight doubling or something on even slower motion, like a human head movement or even slow vertical pans. I need to find a tv with known good motion to compare to.
