I have a 52EX700, very similar to your 60EX500. With gamma and color properly set, the EE BD looks BETTER in color and shadow detail than the EE DVD, not worse.

I was stunned by how much detail there was near black in scenes like the mines of Moria, or the battle of Helm's Deep. The color timing is better, as well - the DVD ran really hot - it looked like the hobbits of the Shire had sunburns at times. And again, I say this as someone whose set is tuned very similarly to yours.

Don't trust screencaps and online haters. The EE BD kicks serious rear-end.


I have the theater versions. I didnt buy due to the green tint. I went to sisters and calibrated her 3d samsung for her and watched the ee and the te blu's. The ee fellowship is an abomanation. The green tint on a calibrated set is worse than a non calibrated set and its disgusting. Also there is major shadow detial loss versus the dvd or te blu editions.

Eh, guess we're seeing two different things.

To each his own.

I can absolutely tell. But, it's probably because I am very anal about PQ. As you said, some people may not notice.

Im sure you could. I said high percentage not all. I can tell too. Again all Im saying is a dvd looks very good on an HDTV. Again there are high def channels that the image quality is well worse than a dvd.
