I was under the impression that the floating black issue on the 8500 was fixed with a firmware update some time ago. But to be honest, there are about 100 different opinions on that TV on this forum...

I don't believe it's unusual for blacks to deepen on a plasma as it breaks in. I know it has been documented on Panasonics in the past.

I don't think anyone would mistake the 8500 for an Elite in dark room viewing.

But given the conflicting #'s and opinions on the 8500 out there...maybe I'll try to hunt down a gently-used...

Robert at VE mentioned a firmware fix for elevated blacks on "another" forum some time ago.

That's odd. 0.0027? I've read about the 8500 getting as low as .0017 on a black screen. Were you using Black Optimizer?

Have you had a chance to measure your black levels yet? I'm on the fence about a 8500 myself.

Thanks for the photos. I'm actually surprised that the 8500 kept it pretty close in some of those shots.
