There is a difference between overly 'bright whites' and full screen whites at a level that a plasma would 'like' to display if something like an ABL didn't exist.
Where I live, during winter on sunny days the snow (full seen whites
) can get so bright that it can become a pain to look at. My VT25, even in torch mode, is so far from being able to reproduce those bright whites full screen. I would say that full screen whites on my 65Vt25 look rather dull thanks to that strong ABL. One of the reasons why I'm interested by the Elite.
