Not necessarily, you don't want to have your all your near blacks to be elevated. It is a kind of damned if you do, damned if you don't. If 17 is too bright you maybe loosing contrast trading off for the last little bit of shadow detail. This is a judgment call and your room lighting will be important. My 92" DLP will cause 16 to be the slightest bit visible with your nose to the screen if you allow 17 to be visible. I opt for visible 18 and let the rest of it drop off, the overall pitcture quality is better but dark scenes with the lights on suffer.. especially since the display is glossy.
