So, let's think about this.
In the Shootout, everyone, I mean EVERYONE wrote off the LG plasma within the first couple of seconds of seeing the high MLL compared to the other TVs
Why? Because to most people there that MLL was unacceptable.
Let's fast forward to where the cyan problem reared it's ugly head on the Elite.
When some people saw that, compared to the other TVs
, they also wrote off the elite as best TV.
So tell me, why where those that wrote off the LG ok to do so, but those doing the exact
same thing to the Elite not right?
If low MLL is important to you, you won't like the LG. If color accuracy is important to you, the very glaring issue on the elite will make IT a TV you won't think about buying.
Why you continue to minimize other people's opinions about the severity of this issue, makes no sense.

Of course not, I never said that (recall who first brought this entire issue up?). But it's obviously a very rare occurrence or real world observations from many people would not be what they are.
It's hard to believe you've never seen reviews on video and audio equipment where that exact thing occurs and the reviewer specifically mentions it. It's far from a rare occurrence, it's actually quite common. Lab measurements often do not translate to actual 'real world' results with actual video and audio equipment.
When in doubt, I care less about instruments than what my eyes and ears tell me. So when a pro reviewer says the skin tones are spot on, I'll put more weight in that observation.
