^Conversely, I can see the desire to want something that can pump out more brightness when not in a dedicated, light controlled room! With the gluttony of content to watch and folks actually viewing...

Why is it so unfathomable to consider that picture quality doesn't start and end with resolution? It's not a conspiracy theory, really.

Ignoring the personal nonsense you posted, you are working on outdated information. Plasma lifespans at this mature stage are 100,000 hours. OLED is proving to be more resilient at this early stage...

The only replacement that will satisfy you with an arguably better image, as far as I'm concerned, is an OLED of equivalent or greater size. I would keep sitting pretty with the ZT if I were you...

No, I was watching the ZT60 in the great room because it's still a fantastic set. I have to go out of my way to watch...

The Day After Tomorrow (a movie I like to laugh at but also appreciate the special efx) looked really good tonight. Hadn't watched the set in over a month. Instead of running the pixel jogger for a...

Personally, I just think we're more particular about these things. Let's give it some more time for the Microcenter honeymoon to end. ;)

Demo unit, I take it? Those go through some serious stress tests. Plague has, I think, 5 after 1000+ hours. I hope this doesn't mean the frequency of subpixel failure increases beyond 1000 hours...

Good points...I can't deny I wouldn't mind a little more brightness from the screen during the height of day. It's just one of a number of reasons I'm anxious for that 77" OLED. The ZT60 still...

A 900A over a ZT60? Dat's heresy to we plasma and cinema enthusiasts. :) Get it in a light controlled room and get back to me.

I resent that wallowing claim. ;) This shootout occurred in the last month in the UK where the TV is/was still on sale.

Get off the pot or piss in it already. :p The set has been out for 1-1/2 years. Bottom line, if you value the dark room viewing your Kuro Elite provides, you are likely to be disappointed.

The above report is likely from Consumer Reports. One has to subscribe to their magazine or site to see the articles, so finding a link might prove to be difficult, but it's not made up. It's been...

As unrepresentative as the data may be, I don't see any way to really vote against either brand here.

I have to assume the 70UD1 costs less than the 1080p Elite models from 3 years ago, so yes, it could easily be gleamed a move in reverse (since Sharp has yet to match the performance of the Elite in...

I would agree overall, but when it comes to upscaling 1080p content to 4K, the jury's out. Would the contrast ratio and black levels overcome those potential advantages of the Sony? I guess that...

Ack...doesn't sound like a worthwhile upgrade from a ZT unless you just gotta' have 4K content or a significantly brighter screen.
