Wow, I'm surprised that it was able to handle a 25 tick reduction without artifacts. What is the manufacture date of the set?

Here's a (very late) update on my situation.

The 92 inch Draper Traveller 0.8 gain screen ended up being the best of the bunch. While my room still lights up and my blacks get killed during...

There's always exceptions to the rule, but I've seen enough red tinted sets to deem unaffected sets as outliers.

Of course the price of the Panny should be reasonable. I wouldn't pay close to $2500 for one.

If the 60 inch Kuro can be had for $500 or less, then I would of course go with the Kuro and just...

You'll definitely hit a point where the black level doesn't get lower, that is if your screen doesn't become littered with magenta sparkles / lag along the way.

This is why I've started recommending the 65 inch Panny's to people looking for a 60 inch or bigger plasma. The 60 inch Kuros don't age well with regards to black level and red tint and they are...

A higher ABL will not increase your peak light output, I've done measurements. Increasing it's value simply makes the Kuro's auto brightness limiter less aggressive.

If the Kuro doesn't have red tint, choose the Kuro. Red tint on a 60 inch is extremely difficult to remove and, unlike the 50 inch versions, offer almost no wiggle room for black level tweaking.

I've never seen yellow pixels on white fields before, so can't help you there.

I prefer to have RSTP as low as possible (since it's the one voltage that goes up as the panel ages and most likely...

Your RSTP is way too high. If your pulse meter was reset, set it to 18, then use a black field to adjust and find a sweet spot. If you see red tint, lower it. If you see darker black blotches,...

I'd rather invest on a good quality fixed screen solution.
