"That statement maintained that the plasmas' black levels are designed to brighten over time ("background brightness will increase from its initial value") to "
brighten and doubling is quite different. .005 to .008 is not what all the crazyness is about. The .005 to .025 is what people are going nuts about, which they have every reason.
this was quite an interesting post

I think you have to take some of these black level measurements with a grain of salt because there's too much variation in how they could have been taken.
For instance how much ambient light was in the room? This could have a huge impact on readings especially with non-single bonded panels.
Also was the meter properly calibrated using a black opaque surface?
And finally how consistent is a $100 meter going to be? Is my .007 reading the same as your .007?""
