Thank you. Couldn't have said it better myself. Just another envious and insecure non Kuro owner trying to justify his purchase by bashing the Kuro.

I set RSTP to 1 and lowered S1/S3/S4 by 15 ticks (as I would see artifacts on anything past that). My meter (i1D3) measured it at .001 prior to the tweak. Post tweak, black level was unreadable.

No. You need to reduce RSTP to 1 AND SAD (or S134) to minimums to get a 9th gen close or equal to stock 9.5 levels.

Yeah, the late 2008 and 2009 build are supposed to get darker than earlier...

1500 is stretching it, but a low hour, mint condition Kuro is definitely worth that IMO.

I've gotten some sweet deals on my Kuros.

I paid 450 for a 151fd that, although was pretty beat up and...

You're at 30 ticks below minimums, which explains the high SUS needed to clear magenta misfires. Was that the needed adjustment to get rid of all of your red tint?

You might want to test a 5% IRE...

YSUS and XSUS don't seem to do anything on my non-reset 141fd and 500M. I even set them both to their lower limit of 112 and no change.

VOL SUS on the other hand, worked to perfection.

I own both a 141fd and a 500M. The brightest I can get the 141fd without issues is around the 38 to 40ftl (measured with AVSHD709 windows). The 500M, around 45 to 47ftl.
