The Elite colour accuracy, is just wrong, especially at that high level of selling price.
Honestly, using that absolute phraseology, virtually all displays are 'just wrong'. I don't think I've ever seen any consumer display, regardless of price, that was 100% correct at every luminance level. It just doesn't happen. Many displays, yes even pricey ones, have had color errors in far more obvious parts of the color spectrum than cyan.
If I had to pick a part of the color spectrum where my inaccuracies occurred, cyan isn't too bad. Again, let's not forget that this error has eluded not only the average Elite owner, but many people who do this for a living. Tom Norton is a reviewer who is extremely well-respected in the industry, and he didn't see it (or didnt find it important enough to even mention) when doing an in-depth Elite review. Tom has never been afraid to call it like it is.
I say this only because someone coming to this thread for the first time can get an entirely erroneous impression when they see a comment like the Elite's color accuracy 'is just wrong'. To the average person this conjures up an image of a display with totally whacked out colors. Owners know this statement doesn't quite mesh with the picture they see, but prospective owners wouldn't. There is nothing, regarding the Elite's color accuracy, that would have anyone unaware of the cyan error saying 'wow, that color accuracy is just wrong'.
If we are to be accurate, saying the color cyan is just wrong would be far more accurate. Some would even argue that you'd need to even further refine that statement by saying 'the color cyan is wrong at certain luminance levels'. But hey, I'd still be happy with the color cyan is just wrong.
I just think it's helpful to keep things in perspective. Should it be fixed if it can be fixed? Absolutely. If it can't, will this really detract from the average Elite owner's viewing experience? Hardly IMO.
