I have to clarify before this gets out of control.
1) There is no "black level" problem. As far as I know, Wesley and myself are the only ones trying to maximum
the black level. Nobody has compared the black level to the other HLS 1080p models to see how they compare - they might be the same. Probably not, due to the contrast ratio difference, but until we see some hard evidence we won't know what the actual difference is. IMO the black level is good just not excellent.
2) There is no "red push" problem. Someone mentioned that a couple of the pre-production sets as CES (that was back in January!) had some red push but another set at the show did not. There is no problem that cannot be resolved w/ a user calibration.
3) As hjw noted, the "banding" problem can be addressed by changing to Movie mode.
