Ran the rest of the tests that I thought would lead to some kind of conclusion and they were inconclusive (go figure).
I also ran a color pattern generator program on my media center PC which gave me The ability to display the primary and secondary colors each individually. I was able to run the colors at full screen and at brightness levels from 100% down to 10% in 10% increments. I ran the test in blue, cyan and magenta. I did not see any color shift from start to finish.
This brings me back to my WAG that there is a very pinpoint area of blue that either has a color decoder error (doubtful) or the magenta tint becomes additive to the particular blue being displayed making it look purple?
To finish the night off I found a discovery special on the Blue Angles air show. I have seen this before on my other displays but this is the first time I saw it on the Pro150. Let me just insert a WOW
. Nothing short of spectacular.
I have seen these aircraft up close and personal, they are a good test for this blue issue (very deep royal blue). I was let down, blue stayed blue. There were times I thought I was starting to see a shift toward purple but it was just the level of lighting.
There was a moment when I was going to press pause to switch to CS1 settings but I noticed a person in the background with a purple ball cap on (vikings purple). Having that as a reference right on top of the plane itself showed the plane was still Royal blue.
I am going to lock up my test equipment and stop nitpicking this awesome display. I might become anal again once I get an I1pro but until then I will just enjoy.
