Thank you very much for this! Also, thank you to everyone else who is helping this overwhelmed newbie get his bearings! Being that I'm most familiar with the minimalist controls found on Panasonics, all the tweaking the 101FD allows is a bit daunting, but it's been interesting playing with all the features. It really seems like you can dial in settings that would fit anyone's taste: from the videophile seeking perfection to the LCD fan looking for that vivid look, this panel has you covered! I'll probably start digging into ControlCAL sometime next week.
Honestly though, I really don't see how this set can get better looking than what I'm currently getting in Pure mode. It's absolutely stunning and I've never seen colors that have such a perfect balance between natural and saturated.
I normally have to compromise when tweaking a set, but I'm more than satisfied with this one. And the shadow detail... wow! It's like I'm seeing movies like The Dark Knight
for the first time! Oh, and with picture depth like this who needs 3D?
Thrilled with this set so far. I'd recommend that anyone currently on the fence or waiting on a forthcoming set pick up an Elite Kuro before they're gone! They're truly peerless and you won't regret it!
