I have always used the IVC Low setting along with THX mode. Based upon calibration results, IVC Low increases the 100% luminance output by 50% for a limited number of LD zones. Full screen 100% test...

I am currently using a 50" 4k Lcd as my computer monitor. It replaced a 37" 1080p set and is a great improvement especially on sites like this.

The reason 1 problem you mention is why some sets have separate day and night calibrated settings.

You made similar comments when the HDTVTest review came out. As in that review, all that could be measured was ANSI contrast (with mediocre results) because Samsung turns the blacklight OFF when a...

See post 67. The reason for the 0.0 measurement is that the zone is switched off. If I remember correctly Sony used to do this (still does?) for FALD and it contributed to haloing.

If those measurements are accurate, hold on to the 70" for the rest of your life. It's a true miracle since Cnet measured the black level of the 65" at .00342 cdm2 (.001 FL). No mention of ANSI...

Amazon has a 30 day no questions asked return policy. Never had a problem and I buy lots of stuff from them. Check Sony's policy.

And my reading of the review is the .051 cdm2 is with the LD turned OFF. My 70" Sharp Elite measured about the same with LD off and .0024 to .004 cdm2 (Cnet and HDGuru respectively) with LD turned on.

^^ When LG gets near the $ of the JS9000, Samsung will drop the $ of the JS9500 to match. My bet is LG has to quickly get down to a premium of no more than 10% as OLED production rises and maintain...

Similar size, yes, but not for top of the line LCD's which are OLED's competition at this point. The 65" Samsung HU9000 is around $4500 at Amazon and BB. The 65" Sony 950B still goes for $7k.

Another way to look at it is your 42" 1080p has the same pixel density as a 84" 4k set. So anything less than 84" at 4k should have a greater density.
