to just indicate again what i was saying, the available professional settings do not allow the zt60 to increase sharpness, because the digital processing going on in the zt60 brings in data processing artifacts. sure you can bring up the sharpness control but it wont get the job done as far as being comparable to the f8500. ( try a darblet on the zt60 maybe, as i did) . the color calibration and white point settings of the zt60 will not remove the green tinge. i have no axe to grind with anyone, just stating the facts of what i observed both in the store and in my home. if someone wants the best blacks and wants to sacrifice a sharp crisp tight picture, and occasionally observe green where it's not supposed to be, and hear a fan, then they should get the zt60. if they want a brighter image that still holds good black level specifications, and has slightly better whites, a tight image that has no softening, without fan noise then the f8500 is best. thats what the thread is about right? giving input on what someone likes and has experience with. if someone else has an experience with both of these then by all means report your opinion! but DEFINITELY these are way different panels. so if everyone can refrain from retaliation for my experience that would be great! it's the holiday season.
