I know I posted my impressions last night but I just wanted to contribute a little more. Today I checked out various discs to focus more on low APL scenes and I was floored with how good they look. Checked out the beginning of Star Wars Revenge of the Sith and the battle sequence in space was just pure eye candy. It was awesome to see how bright the explosions were and the lights of the ships whenever they popped into the scene. IMO that is where the focus should be on this PJ rather than just "how black" the black level is on fade to blacks. Yeah I understand the correlation between the two but this thing could easily have a darker black level but less "pop" in those scenes with bright objects being darker. To me this is the key of the high CR and it is what impresses me the most rather than seeing the CR figure and worrying/wondeirng how deep the black level is based on it. Maybe I am just talking out of my ass but it's how I feel.
