Noah, if the survey you are referring to is the (only) one I recall, that survey asked if the RS1 met or exceeded our expectations, it was not focused on the oversaturated colors.

I'm not sure what you think is a hyperbole. I don't believe it's an exaggeration to say most normal people will notice the oversaturation. My wife noticed it instantly... and that says volumes! If you disagree with this, I can only assume your PJ looks noticeably different than mine. To answer your question, the only thing I've done is to play with all the available menu settings within the RS1. I have not found a way to correct the oversaturation. About the only control that seems to improve the oversaturation is dropping the 'color', but doing this degrades the image in other ways. I ended up setting the color at -5 as a compromise.
To the best of my knowledge there is no way of properly fixing the problem w/o a CMS. Likewise, I have yet to see any inexpensive methods to mask the problem that wont simultaneously create other issues. Filters or an ISF calibration will not fix the problem. While I'm not yet prepared to pay $4k+ for a VP that might help fix the problem, I am going to be watching to see how this VP pans out for this application.
