You may want to reach out to David Katz from CNet to see if they still have their test units. He'd be able to test and reach higher up within Vizio to get answers.

It depends how much brightness you want/need. Most calibrators calibrate to 35/40 ftL or lower for TVs They can go higher for a "day mode" and that's where it will vary on bwo high it can get.

It's not only importers but everyone doing it. Everyone has a term or marketing mumbojumbo to cloak what they really mean.

For the settings have you tried renaming and or locking the custom setting after calibration? Haven't seen reports back on this yet to see if it makes a difference.

Not only that l, but then you would need someone to go firmware by firmware to see which one is "the" one. I'm not sure anyone has the time or money for that endeavor here ;)

Not really a marketing gimmick as there is content that takes advantage of it just not much of it. You'll see more 10bit content when 4k becomes more common I think. Also Vizio doesn't put it front...

2014 Vizio Thread All models

You would need to have 10bit content to take advantage of those colors. Since there isn't much if that, the expanded offering goes to "waste". I think the real 10bit push will come with 4k content. ...
