We now know this is FALSE, and the credibility of the results of the shootout has seriously been called into question.
What good does it do to brag about winning a shootout, with PQ that DOES NOT LAST, after you mislead the audience about how long the display will perform at the level of the shootout.
Rough transcript of the above YouTube video.Panny rep
: "David Katzmaier from CNET, he actually has a G series and a VT25, he's kept them, he's been obviously up to date with CNET, and actively letting people know, he has not seen any loss at all on anything, so there is really nothing more to say about the comments there or..."Kevin Miller
: "He's burning 'em in for usually, well over a thousand hours, and there's been no raise in black levels."Robert Z:
"Well this one's been since early July, actually, and we've seen no measurable--nothing that we can measure, that's changed, so, and we leave this TV on a lot, because it's a beautiful TV to display, as well as we want to do a very thorough, minimum of a thousand hour break-in, so we don't see any measurable, nothing we can measure, with the instruments we have."D-Nice:
"By the time, you guys actually see these rise, you'll be in the market for another display. We're all enthusiasts, so by the time, from the enthusiasts perspective, by the time this stuff actually starts happening, you're gonna be in the market for the best panel and display at the point in time anyway. So at this point, I would say, it's kind of like irrelevant, but you know, the question still stands. I understand that, but, don't worry about it."
