Which makes me think it's pure marketing hogwash.
Do you have either model? Could you list the color/picture menu options or point me to someplace where I can see them?
Yes it's a confusing mess.
My understanding is the E450 to the E550 use last years
glass from the top teir models E6500 and up with the exception
of the 60" energy saving RGBG panels on the E530 and E550.
The E550 on down use the 'Real Black Filter'.
The E6500 and up use the 'Pro' Real Black Filter.
The 'Pro' filter is an internal upgrade to the glass itself
not just some AR coating slapped on the outside.
The software is upgraded big time and even more so for the E8000.
By all accounts the 60" 'Pro' panels have better blacks
and are brighter than the 51" 'Pro' panels.
I have the E450 and I can assure you it does have
a very effective anti-glare filter and the panel
is bright and has lot's of contrast and it does require
about a 1000 hours to age properly and my Shadow Detail
is finally looking normal.
