Only time will tell. And it can take weeks of regular viewing to get rid of really bad IR. Playing the Disney WoW disc can help accelerate the process of ridding yourself of IR, but so can regular...

Curved? No thanks. OLED, yes, but only after we see the longevity of the technology. And as I recall, although the blacks are near perfect, there are some other issues inherent in the OLED tech...

The NIB is a VT. There is less risk there but if it's not burn in on the ZT then $2,000 plus extended warranty vs. $3,200 for a NIB VT isn't really a question IMO. However, if the screen damage is...

If you're getting it for $2,000, down from $2,200 and an extra year of warranty then I think it's a chance worth taking. The worst that could happen is the IR, which in all honesty didn't look that...

They're representing a TV with 200 hours that actually has 1,600 hours? Either they were guessing (and shouldn't have) or they're deliberately misleading. Either way there's a problem. And IR over...

I'll second the previous comment. For the most part, none of the issues with the ZT are an issue under normal circumstances, but if you look for problems you're going to find them. My advice is to...

If it really has only 200 hours (and you verify this) then that's a great price. Cheap enough to take a chance in the IR.

The first picture is an early ribbon tweeter model that featured LCY ribbon tweeters (if I recall correctly). The later (and current) models use the RAAL tweeter.

Yes, if you're not particular about your finish--which, given these are Salks, means you're crazy--there are some great deals to be had on second hand Salks.

Once you place your order have a doctor place you into a shallow coma for a few weeks. Waiting for the build and delivery is excruciating. :D

What a deal! I can't think of a better all in one setup for someone just building his own basement home theater, but who isn't really into music. I'd probably add another sub though.

It's possible, but only if the Denon is broken. One easy way to check is to find programming that shows the noise, then play it through the receiver & direct to the TV.

Pixel noise is dependent on source material and TV picture settings. If you aren't adjusting the individual settings you can switch from the different pre-set modes (i.e. THX Cinema, THX Day).

Ugh! Good luck. See if the store has any 900U units in stock. Depending on what they pay for the unit, they may be willing to exchange for that unit instead of issuing a refund. It's worth a shot.
