If Kraine, Cine4home and myself aren't complaining, then it doesn't exist.
all kidding aside, I have a tough time giving these PC reviews much credence. They don't even provide basic, objective measurements and much of the other info seems subjective in nature.
This was a hot topic when the 2011 JVC's first came out. I can confirm the digital noise in the RS40 and RS50, but it really wasn't visible from seating distance so I didn't consider it an issue.
I personally haven't seen it on the Sony, even getting close up to the screen. Maybe it was in their source? Who knows.
It's a shame that Cine4home's review is in German and Kraines in French (the google translations are still very much worth reading). This is the only English written review and some folks are hanging their hat on what I would consider a preview at best. They have the calibration equipment and should be publishing the results.
