Has anone mentioned (or discovered) if the screen is matte, semi-matte or glossy?

If glossy, do we know if there is any kind of AR coating?

There are a few points of irony here that I could make about your commentary, but I'm pretty sure it would be lost on you. So, enough of that and end of story. Please move on.

I care about 4k about as much as I cared about 3D, which is not at all.

I do care about black levels, color accuracy, off-angle viewing and screen uniformity. If Panasonic can perform well in...

It would be great if you're right, and it would be even better if one of these was remotely affordable. We will see. Until the AX900 is taken out of its controlled environment and tested in the wild,...

Which is ironic, because I'm sure their last generation of plasmas are going to continue to trounce future 4k competition, with the exception of OLED.

Hell even if it performed at the same level as the Sharp Elite (minus the color issues) but with a smaller price tag, I would consider that progress.

Sounds like Panny is still (potentially) fudging with the ZT's settings for these demos. That stinks if true. If you make a new TV that can't match the performance of your former flagship model, you...

I believe they have to wait for the TV's to arrive from the manufacturer, and some manufacturers are a bit tepid in loaning out models. CNet does not purchase on their own AFAIK.

Also, with the...

I *think* I read that the 65" OLED (1080p model) would be released for about $6k+ in the coming weeks. (That price is from an online dealer--who knows what a big box store will charge)

So I...

I know Panasonic changed things up for their last generation or two of plasmas, but I'm not an expert by any means. I'm sure the answers are somewhere on the ZT threads--maybe i'll check if I have...

That reviewer is legit, he's one of the calibrators from the VE Shootout every year. He also does some pretty good reviews on his website (albeit UK models).

Just curious, but did anyone have a chance to check the settings on the ZT? The last time Panasonic set up a demo like this, it seems that they intentionally held back on the ZT's capabilities.

I'm assuming the "light engine" can be replaced when it reaches its expiration point?

If so, how much to replace?

(Yes, I know 20-30k hours is a very long time)

The good news is that the floating black problem with the 8500 has by and large been eliminated. The bad news is that the PQ of the set is no longer what it quite was.

If you look at how well it...

Very curious to see how the 8500 performs now in the next VE Shootout. I can only assume they will be using a newer set, which may or may not hit the same numbers from 2013.

You would get 4 extra inches of viewing real estate and a better AR filter with the Samsung. That's about it.
