I think the OP said 'effectively' non-existent, which, in this context is correct.
As was pointed out, people don't watch test wedges, they watch films.
I believe this is also the cause of misunderstanding when people refer to scientific experiments on the human eye. Being able to resolve the difference between two pixels, isn't the same as being able to see something in a film.
The 'two pixels' experiments are done with two opposite pixels (black/whaite) and the viewer will have a fixed, relatively long period of time to resolve the difference. They'll be staring at the pixels in quiestion, too.
That's a far cry from resolving the difference between millions of pixels at once, which are almost exclusively not as different as black/white, and which change most frames - that'a a couple of dozen times per second, or 120 times as fast as in a 5 second test.
Finally, I'm surprised that no-one else has noticed a marked problem with the response to this test - the appearence of SDE (screen door effect).
People are discussing whether or not they can see SDE. And yet no-one has yet mentioned the fact that people see SDE more with LCD than with DLP projectors. We have however seen comment of SDE being more noticeable on some 720p projectors than others. It's crystal clear that the appearence, or non-appearence has as much to do with the technology used as it has to do with the resolution of the panel involved.
