That article intrigues me.
What kuro did he test it against (does he say?)?? If they have a CMS, how could he not get the green remotely close to REC709?
I think he probably could've measured the grayscale better. Does anybody know the formula to find the delta Es? I know the PRO-111FD measures below one from 10-100 IRE*. It says that there aren't RGB high/lows to use...that seems sketchy.

Overscan of HDTV signals measured 3% in Stretch mode, 0% in Dot-by-Dot, 15% horizontal/5% vertical in Super Stretch, and 15% horizontal/15% vertical in Zoom.
eek, very bad angle drop-off
-- Wait doesn't that disagree with impressions that the viewing angle is good.
I vote a sketchy review.
P.S. I love it how the pioneer/sharp coalition produces pioneer speakers on the sharp panel.
*This chart only shows 20-100 on the sharp review. Did the reviewer have good equipment or could it not go that low??
Edit: Uni, yeah I just saw that on the performance section. At least we have a display that can finally beat the 8G blacks (excluding the a950 and xbr8. I'm just saying that in general).
