post #1321 of 4963
Is there a stand available for the 600M that will drop it down very low, maybe 1" off the table?
post #1322 of 4963
Anyone know the wattage on the 500M?
post #1323 of 4963
Can anyone tell what wold be a good, solid wall mount for the 500M?
post #1324 of 4963
does the 600m share the same moutning pattern as the 141?
post #1325 of 4963
Noticed there is no USB port on 600m and I'm guessing no SD card slot. Anyway to display pics on this set?

I've been using them for two nights now on both directv and blu-ray. The Master's looked great today with these settings in pure mode. I was using standard mode before when viewing directv as pure was too soft, but with elite's settings pure now looks great for all my viewing - sharp and beautiful colors and great detail. During an interview of one of the golfers today, I could even see the ridges in the collar of his knit shirt!

Thanks to elite and D-Nice for your time and effort!

Chief, Sanus and Peerless all make excellent quality mounts with a variety of features. Look at their websites. They all have a search feature that brings up all the mounts suitable for your model. Choose the model that has the features you want.

I ordered a Peerless articulating mount for my 500M (from an online source at a substantial discount) as I need to fine tune the height to match the recess my 500 will be mounted in. I thought the Chief articulating mounts were the best looking and best engineered. I couldn't justify their higher price as my mount will only be visible when the panel is extended out from the wall. Chief has mounts which can be attached to only one stud, be adjusted horizontally about 4" and support the 500M which can have advantages if the mounting location is critical.

Sounds like you got your panel home successfully today. Congratulations.

Not yet, picking it up tomorrow morning

Thanks for the suggestions, looking at the Sanus VMPL250B (low profile mount) and the regular profile version.

I just ordered a 500M, and a Peerless ST670 wall mount. It mounts to 3 wall studs, rather than 2 (which apparently many other, smaller mounts do).

If you are curious, I will let you know how it works out.
post #1331 of 4963
I have been thinking of getting the 600M and have been researching stands. If you are interested with one on wheels made to be portable for business uses look into Peerless. The cart is a SR1M and the mounting bracket is PLP-NEC61. This option is attractive to me since I may be moving this fall and knowing my plasma can be rolled out my door up a truck and off again sounds very appealing. It can be had for around $500 from different venders and looks quite interesting. You can see it at Peerless website where you can also verify which model/bracket matches.

One of the forum sponsors that had a good price on the 600m ran out last night while I was trying to decide what to do. I put my name on their waiting list.

My 500 is mounted with the Peerless 660 and works just fine... not very expensive either.

It can be done through components depending on which one you have. the ps3 works great.

Pictures from my Apple TV look great on my 500M also...

I am using a Zuum Media 1" wall mount for my 500M and 5080. They cost about $50 and are very low profile

What model fits the 600? Where can you purchases these?

Peerless 670, Sinus 24-84 mount, or the Pioneer specifically made for the 600, which seems to get it at the closest profile.
post #1338 of 4963
Thanks for the positive feedback on Elite's settings all. I haven't had time to try them, but I think we may be watching Marley and Me tonight on DVD so I will give them a shot. I have been most happy with Standard so far but will definitely see how this goes with Pure.

actually the sanus beats the peerless in depth by a half inch closer to the wall listed a few posts back if you attatch the flat wall bracket. tilt bracket is another story. i think ill be getting that one for the 600m when i order tomorrow. Alex you better call me!

I was really asking about the Zuum media 1" mount. The price is right and the depth seems better than some of the ones mentioned.
post #1341 of 4963
Get it too close to the wall on a non-articulating mount and the connections become a new hobby.
post #1342 of 4963
I've read most of this thread now.
Thanks Elite for posting the settings and D-Nice for answering man of the questions.


My question is what setting should be used during burn in if the 141 setting are not right for this panel?

I used the break in settings for 151, which included 101, 111, 151, 141, and I think there are others who used that setting during break in. it works fine for me to be honest, maybe others can chime in as well. But I think D Nice meant to say after you break in the panel, you don't want to use the settings for 151, or the 141, cause they are not the same for 500m/600m.

Break-in isn't an exact science. I think D-Nice's settings are designed just to push the phosphors as much as possible. So I wouldn't worry too much about the specific settings.

Hi,
After reading all of the post in this forum, I changed my mind on the 5020 and went with the 500m. It was delivered on Sat. Unit has a major buzz. They are going to replace it on Tuesday. They left it here so I can play.

They said that it is not necessary to do in breaking in, and burn in is a non issue. Is this true?

What settings are you useing for burn in?

When we turned the unit on it blew a fuse in my Monster cable surge protecter. We had to plug the tv into the wall. I will be calling monster cable in the morning.

I am trying to use hdtv for burn in period but they have their darn call letters on screen all the time. Any suggestions?

Thanks

This thread is on the same page, and it's discussed a little above here too.

Elite's settings were horrific on my January build 600M. The picture was washed out and the blacks were gray in a room with no ambient lighting. I'm not talking subtle gray, but worse-than-LCD type gray.

I thought I must have entered the settings wrong, but I double and triple checked to confirm they were correct.

There must be a fairly significant variance between some 600M units.

Out of the box, I used the 151 break-in settings for ~165 hours.

I thought there might be some difference in various models too, depending on the time of the built possibly. We can possibly take note on the units that each of us own, the model numbers, and their findings on elite's settings, and compares.....

I'll start, mine is a October 2008 build, and I find elite's settings for my 600m to be well suited, and I am actually using all of them on my inputs, including directv.

what I am starting to find that I like about my 600m, is that it is making even SD broadcast look great. just lookng at tonight's "apprentice", and just noticed how much better it looked versus when I was looking at my Sony SXRD, really, really enjoying this TV.....

That's really surprising. I plugged his settings into my 600M last night and have been quite happy with what I've seen so far. Nice deep Kuro blacks. Did you test them on TV or DVD/Blu-ray (or both)?

BTW, I have an October 2008 build.
