I looked at the Reviewed.com site and saw the ST60 and S60 reviews. Under the 'science' tab I found this:
However, the S60 review doesn't specify what happens to the picture past the red line.
Also, under the ST60 review I read:
We calibrated the P60ST60 in the Cinema picture mode. We bumped up Contrast from its default of 75 to 100; Brightness was left at 0; Color was left at 50; Tint was left at 0; and Sharpness was reduced from 50 to 0. We also turned off all post-processing and motion smoothing settings, and kept Panel Brightness at its Low setting. The Medium and High settings caused red-tinting in the lower steps of the greyscale
, and their effect on overall luminance was not poignant enough to justify the aforementioned skewing.
Does he mean steps under 5% gray? On my 50", 21-pt grayscale is fine (but this won't show what happens under 5% gray).
Since you are in contact with Lee, I wonder if you can find out more about these two things.
