My panel has only 390 hrs on it.
In my opinion, its black level seems to fall somewhere between Orta's S1 and his G10. Of course, his is further along hours-wise...
here's mine playing the black slide on the SD break in images using identicle settings for camera and cinema mode on tv
just for comparison I measured the RGB levels in photoshop of ortas, yours, and mine
Orta's read R:36, G: 31, B:54(which is because his is a blue tint)
Your's read R:34, G: 36, B:33
Mine: R34, G:38, B:39
0,0,0 is absolute black and 7, 17, 16 is what his S1 read at
the worst thing is I know the panel is capable of phenomenal blacks because here's using vivid(I'm not sure but this may just turn the pixels off which is why it's so dark)
