True, Scientifically speaking.
Also true is that while 150 hrs in the lifetime of the set is a small portion of the wear of the phosphers. Yes they wear faster in this time frame. This still winds up being an small portion of overall wear and inconsequential in the end.
So while the phospors may be worn to exact spec with sliders at 150. and not 100 percent even with other methods. By the time a user reaches 1000-2000 and onward it just plain doesnt matter.
All the sets will be identical within panasonics spec by the time a few months goes by.
The only benefit the slider method provides mathmatically speaking is if Dnice is coming to your house to calibrate the set when it has 150 hrs on it he could get the set to look almost exactly like the original barring tolerance descrepancies. Other than that no one, and I do mean no one on this planet is ever ever going to know that two panasonic g10 models that are the same size were ever broken in differently without a meter byt the time a couple of months of viewing has passed.
Where are you on SoCo. I will be coming down that way eventually as my parents are retiring there near columbia soon
