I'll do my best, it will be awkward (2, 65" tv's takes up alot of space) but I will most definitely give you the best comparison I can. 

 

I get where your coming, when you have a 1080p source on the gt30 you honestly wonder just how much better it can be.

I'd take a check for $150.00 and leave mine as is..lol. How effective was the fix? I'm still debating whether to ask for it or leave it alone.

Thanks, sorry I meant to say your opinion on the difference in picture quality. My gt30 still looks incredible but i'm sure the zt60 blows it away.

I recently purchased a ZT60 and love it.  I'm having it calibrated professionally and wanted to ask a question.  To those that are calibrators, what are your thoughts on the CalMan 5 calibration software compared to the calibration software I've seen you using here?  I had the calibrator use the CNET settings on Cinema mode and it looks fantastic.  I'm going to compare that to what my guy gets with his calibration using the CalMan 5 software on Professional1 mode.  Just curious to know if the light sensors and software make a big difference between calibration software kits in the end results.

The fan noise didn't bother me but I had the fix done anyway. I perceived a limited improvement--maybe 30% reduction--but my cheapo dB meter didn't.

A bad gamma setting or mismatch with bluray player can give you a green tint sometimes or yellow tint or washed out white .
This is all misinformation. Thx is green across a great number of sets because it is green. Not because our sources are green. Also you said a while back you paid some local who wasnt all that professional about 100 dollars to calibrate your set. I doubt it was all that "pro"

My THX Cinema isn't green at all so I'm not so sure this is a universal problem.
post #6400 of 11398
My ZT60 now has 300 hours and I have read about the potential panel brightness change somewhere between 300-400 hours. Has this actually been measured? Is it fact or myth? I should be able to get my panel to 400 hours before I have it calibrated, but want to make sure 400 is the magic number.

Sounds more like the majority, reading this forum

I just said a wrong gamma setting can give issue looks like a wrong color setting, just that, no wrong info in this.
My panel don't have those issue but i'am on pc and my gamma curve is straight so what is the wrong info with my post tell me ?

You post wrong info coz i pay 230 for calibration was on sale and coz the man not do my 3D i complain and they gave me a refund of the half. It's mean i pay 115.00
Stop bla bla about me.
I will "bla bla" when i see you spreading misinformation. Lots of things can give you wrong color. These sets are green not because of what you suggest.
And i beleive you think your set is fine tuned, i highly doubt thats reality. You have been giving bad advice for a long time. Sharpness at 75 or something i believe you preached for a while.

THX Bright Room is where the green particularly shines...there may be a minuscule hint of it in Cinema, but nothing that I can definitively confirm. I am definitively confident this problem stemmed the factory.

How many hour on your panel now ?
post #6407 of 11398
Somewhere in the vicinity of 1400 hours.

Custom is different from the Pro modes and will give different results with the same settings. In picture menu you can copy adjustments from one picture mode to another.

I am assuming though if you want to try different self calibrations (various gamma targets, etc) you have the same "potential" in cinema vs custom vs pro modes?

Ok but do you plan to get your panel calibrate later even you will not see day and night difference you will be sure your color is on the target.
post #6410 of 11398
One of these days, probably. I'm currently still paying for the TV, lol.

Right. What I would like is the opportunity to personally calibrate say four different modes at the same time to quickly switch/test different gamma targets, panel brightness, etc. Wanted to make sure in theory I could get a great cal to the same target goals regardless of the picture mode that you start from - THX aside of course wink.gif

I never experienced the Green Tint issue you guys are.

Bob

Bob (mcjimsey) is right. Throw up a grayscale test pattern. Set to THX mode of your choice. If there is a green problem (or any other colour issue) it will show up there.

Even have the money for buy this oled not sure i will buy those first generation of oled, i think those first oled will have more issue then the future one at lower cost in 5 years.
haha, jes, longevity concerns are a big question mark. I'd have to take out a 10-year loan for one. wink.gif If I became a lottery winner or the recipient of an unknown fortune (i.e. inheritance), I'd probably preorder one!

Back on earth, I'd already have the TV paid if I hadn't been financing so many other projects of late (with more to come!).

Is anyone using ARC with the set to a home theater or sound bar? I have mine setup using ARC to a recently released H/K SB35 and the behavior initially is as expected...TV recognizes "home theater" , shuts off internal speakers and routes any input's audio to the H/K. But, the volume control isn't working 100%. It shows the on screen display like its turning it up or down using the TV control, but doesn't actually do anything. I'm trying to confirm if its the TV or the Soundbar...any other user feedback would be much appreciated.

Just had my set delivered. Screen uniformity is good. Slight fan noise but there's a fix out. However there is noticeable buzzing when the screen is white. Watching LOTR there's a scene that flashes between dark and white and the buzzing really stands out. Much louder than the fan noise which is covered up when watching a film.

Is this something I'll just have to live with or are there sets that don't have this problem?

First impressions: Not blown away just yet. LOTR seems grainy and at times pixels appear to be "dancing" fluttering? On hour 2 using Cinema mode with Contrast 50, Sharpness 0 and Brightness 0.

See my post...http://www.avsforum.com/t/1474480/official-zt60-owners-thread/6330#post_24184073

Seems fairly consistent with others...
