They said the parts are not interchangeable though I find it hard to believe they wouldn't be. Maybe they don't want to cannibilize 725 sales as the replacement screen is $200 which is less than the difference in price between the 525 and 725.
I can certainly understand your point.
It would seem that there are (at least) two parameters that would determine whether or not a shield is interchangable.
#1, it has to physically fit, and
#2, it has to be compatible with the TV, i.e. not produce luminance or chrominance or other INACCURACIES that render your $5000 investment HANDICAPPED.
So back to my post from a couple days ago, which is:
If you put a "better" shield on a "lesser" TV, will it still be able to be accurately calibrated by an ISF tech?
Go ahead and flame me, but all this talk about "red push" and "black levels" and "sharpness" and "film-like" and yada-yada is often based on the author viewing a TV that hasn't even been setup properly!
Yeah, it costs a few hundred dollars to adjust it right, but that's only 10% of the equation. If I buy a $500 TV, I'll just fiddle and tweak the knobs 'till it's as good as possible, but when I plunk $5K down.....
