Both the measurements and the color filters show this lack of red luminance in the color decoding of THX mode. It tends to give skin tones a yellow/green "antique" look.
My personal opinion is that I would rather live with the too wide gamut of custom than the de-emphasized red and shifted magenta of THX. Plus, THX mode is dimmer by design. That's OK for a totally dark theater room, but it looks very bland with any ambient light.
Chad, thanks so much for that info.
I agree with you, i'd opt for custom mode where the red is more accurate.
Can i ask you, why do you think CNet reviewed the G10 in THX and came to the conclusion of THX having more accurate colors?
One more thing i'd just like to run by you, givin the s1 and G10 have the same specs, and many here opt for not using the THX mode, as far as picture quality, these two models are exactly the same.
Is this correct?
Of course the G10 has a few extra features such as it's pc input and xv color..ect, but it seems both have the same picture quality, if your not using THX mode on the G10.
Would you agree with that?
I'll probably opt for the G10 anyway, but i'm curious how you feel about this.
