Well, here goes the old "male ego," feeling it must DEFEND ITSELF. I truly NEVER meant to resurrect the Cyan issue, but you must realize that I am new to the thread and after reading what seems like hundreds of posts on the subject I (like HTguru3) never considered it a "non-issue." The real ISSUE that stuck out in MY MIND from that long discussion was when I read that reputable calibrators were holding off on their calibrations until Sharp came up with a firmware "fix" for the problem. I just went to the link htwaits has for the calibration list and I see that a few calibrations have been made, with the last one being done in April by Kevin Miller. D-Nice was not listed, so I'm not sure where he stands on calibrating this display at this point in time. So, that was the only reason I even mentioned the Cyan issue.
Let me just reiterate though that I stated clearly that I didn't think I would avoid the Elite based on that issue alone. But people (including beloved AVS members) tend to see the cup as being half empty instead of half full, thus only my somewhat negative comment was responded to and my positive comments were, for all practical purposes, ignored.Edited by djoberg - 8/23/12 at 8:26am
