I know, I know. I certainly didn't want to minimize the superb PQ of the Pro 151, that will never change. But in as much as I like more 'pop' to my picture, both the Elite and the 8500 provide that while maintaining superb black levels for those dark environments.
Remember it was the Kuro that tipped me off as to the cyan error (speaking of opening up a can of worms!!!) on the Elite. It will always have a warm place in my heart.
