The primary point of contention I've most often noticed isn't that objectivists claim that measurements can provide you with all necessary information but that subjectivists often refuse to...

Panasonic provides a game mode as a feature. They don't care if you play games or don't play games, given that burn in isn't covered in the warranty.

I've been gaming on my ZT since the very beginning. Some games (i.e. Gears of War, the latest Assassin's Creed) cause IR and others don't. It really comes down to what's on the HUD and how bright...

Never could get ARC to work twice in a row with my Denon. Apparent handshake issues or need to power on devices in a certain order. I eventually just gave up.

I would not pay anything close to MSRP on a "NIB" TV with no warranty. Not with OLED coming down in price as it is. Additionally, I know of no company that will give you a warranty right now but if...

I'm not sure if I'd say OLED is in its infancy given how long the tech has been around, but it's encouraging to see a larger unit going for a relatively modest price.

And ours are flat.

The review isn't as glowing as you'd think given the quote above. For example, "Its video processing and color accuracy don't measure up to that of the best TVs, and the curved...

I wouldn't be surprised at all if cable channels do what TV networks have been doing for years, altering the movie both for content as well as "formatting to fit your screen".

Any alteration of the original aspect ratio (OAR) zooms in the picture and in the process removes content that was put there on purpose. If you crop 2.39:1 to 1.78:1 you're missing out on the...

I would imagine that, like pretty much any calibrator or videophile, D-Nice is of the belief that the "cleaner" the signal the better, so video processing should be kept to a minimum. Or maybe in...

Yep, same panel but with different AR coating and the ZT has the gapless assembly. Personally, I was never able to see the gapless "benefit" between the two side by side but, considering the trouble...

All evidence points to it sharing the panel with the VT, with the only difference between the physical panels being the anti-reflective coating. And any difference in calibration almost can almost...

That's stunt pricing. I'd be surprised if anyone bought it. IMO it's not even a very good value at the $4,100 MSRP.

Or is it related to magnesium sputtering as it relates to image retention? I remember talk about that from some time ago.

I didn't buy a warranty for mine. Naturally it comes with one year of coverage, which is when any inherent issues usually appear anyway. I'm not sure if I'd buy used unless the price was nice. For...

The ZT and VT panels are the same. Where they differ is the ZT's improved anti-glare coating.

I game with a PS3 & Xbox 360 fairly regularly. You'll want to disable any unecessary HUDs (especially if they're white) and use a picture mode with Contrast set no higher than 70. Pixel orbiter can...

The ZT has 3 fans. I can't imagine adding additional exterior fans would do any harm, as long as airflow in & out isn't restricted.
