IIRC a bias light is most effective when the walls are white. Bias light cast onto a black wall would not have the same effect as that cast onto a white wall. I have wood paneling and can't have a...

As I recall there was a firmware update but I think it just addressed the browser and/or apps.

As I recall (and I've been wrong before) the fan fix factory installation was implemented in mid-August. And as was stated, many weren't bothered by the non-fixed units. Installation of the fix is...

Any ISF calibrator should know what the Pro modes are for and how to access them. Calibrating only the THX modes is not a full and proper calibration, so I hope you didn't pay full price.

Never heard of that company but they're selling a 65" ZT for $1,900? Yeah, I don't think so.

I would be very, very suspicious of anyone saying they have a NIB ZT60. I'd bet just about anything it has hours on it and I wouldn't pay a cent for a TV I wasn't able to verify hours on.

Yes, the cores are intended to be attached to power cords to prevent interference with other electronics. Never noticed anything unsavory when my TV is on. I wonder if anyone else has.

What he did would be fine if the screen was just glass, as CRTs used to be, but you'd think the guy would know plasmas have a screen coating. I wouldn't worry too much about the paper towels. As...

The break-in period for Salk speakers is 15-30 minutes (according to the guy who builds them) so I imagine the second hand HT3s are broken in already. I second the request for pictures. I've seen...

I agree. No price is final until the purchase is made. And given the IR issue, as well as the misrepresentation of the number of hours on the unit, I think there is significant leverage for a price...

OLED is not hands-down better than the ZT. And it's smaller. And it's curved. And it's untested (longevity-wise). And, finally, it's an LG.

I wouldn't replace my ZT with OLED unless it were...

Indeed, expectation bias is very strong, but simply knowing (or believing) a change has been made is all that's necessary for bias to be present.
