So I take it AA03 is a AUO A-MVA3 panel then? Any well to tell for sure? If so I like the sound of that, I'd rather have overall better performance (especially less input lag) at the cost of sacrificing some deeper blacks.
Edit: oh uh, looks like it might not be a MVA3 panel but the older inferior... MVA, damn why do they make this stuff so confusing! They should all be the same based on the model number.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...&postcount=855
So how do I tell if my TV has the older A-MVA panel or the newer A-MVA3 one? Someone in the thread above said all panels made after about the second half of 2010 should be A-MVA3 but then someone else says that AA03 is MVA only. So confusing!
Edit 2: The debate and confusion continues, according to this guy who seems to be pretty adament, anything after April of 2010 (based on his post date) above 40" should be the new MVA3 panel, at this point though who knows, all your panels are belong to ushttp://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...0#post18534950http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...3#post18554943
Edit 3: if there is an easier way to tell I'd be ever so grateful, as a long time and diligent tech forum poster and helper, I cry uncle, I've spent at least a dozen hours the last couple days looking into this and am not that much closer to an answer, the dangers of AV (and IT) research on the internet when you care!
Edit 4: I've taken my search to the panel thread since it seemed a more fitting spot for these questions. Long story short, I think it is the new panel. Not verified though.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...3#post20158923
