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.

No, i had my TV calibrated for Ideal mode only, not Day. I have since set Custom to D-Nice's Day settings & I regularly check with THX Day as well but I rarely use them.

The perception of black is affected by ambient light. The TV isn't behaving differently, your eyes are. With light in the room they are "over exposing" what you see. In a black room the light emitted...

I don't mean to imply this is typical with the ZT, just that panel variance may account for some screen irregularity. Even so, I wouldn't say what you're showing is "within spec" or typical.

Is the discoloration at all angles? What I mean is, it's not the louvre effect from the AR filter, right? Uneven screen wear is a known factor. It looks more like DSE than banding. Either way, I'm...
