Yes I believe it. I have a 58s1 and I can tell you that it is still black, not as black as when it was new and it does have over 1700 hours. Looks great. I do not do any measuring or even think about it but it still appears black, even with the lights off. No gray. The IR is not a problem. , , In standard mode I have had my contrast set at 78 and brightness at 46 since day 1. The so called break in period is way over rated, in my opinion. There will be a disagreement about this I am sure as some members in this forum think it's the doom and gloom for everybody.
