Overheating and the aging attributes of blue diodes, two loosely related but definitely separate topics. Enough with this conflation! Thanks for the report, fluxo.

Well you should have convinced me to get a 101 then. I told you I was considering both. Only problem is at the time there was no 101 I could get. My cousin was going to be right where a guy from this site with a 101 for sale is, but the guy would not call me back, so I assume either it was sold or he wasn't in a rush to sell it. Early on, threads on this site about the differences in the 101 and 111 had everyone claiming they had the exact same picture quality. I did know the 101 was later said to have deeper blacks, only in certain content and certain lighting. I guess I could always buy one later on, but I am in enough trouble as it is being stuck with 2 111s.
Well, of course that deeper black won't always be visible, especially with higher contrast content...the more dark content there is on-screen, the more obvious lower mll will be.
I regretted my 111FD purchase ever since I found out the 101FD/500Ms would go blacker. It was always a nagging "what if" in my mind. This information is widely available on the web. The hell was I thinking for slipping up as your personal research assistant? Edited by vinnie97 - 10/15/13 at 11:29pm
