Well I tried these settings this morning, first with my blinds closed, and I did favor these settings over your original daytime settings. My blacks did seem darker, not as black as they do at night but at least darker than they did yesterday. Of course once I opened my blinds and the sunlight hit the screen the side bars on ESPN whent from fairly black to pretty gray and thus somewhat dulling out the picture, no glare though which im amazed buy just dulling of the picture once the sun hit it.
I think all this being said it goes back to your logic on how plasma screens unlike LCD's as in the case of my xbr4, are not dark/black, which you notice in a well lit room when they are off. Just as in the case of these Kuro's, there like a grey plastic like screen thus giving me greyer blacks during the day when there is a lot of sun hitting it.
One thing I will add though is, I can definetly conclude after going from a 1080p set to a 720 Elite is that there is a big diference, at least to me, in picture detail. Which I dont think I can live without. Which means a pro-110 along with its I believe better video proccesser would make me happier but not my bank account.
I will continue to let this set break in and see what it can finally do but I dont see the graying of the blacks during the day get any better due to the nature of the plasma screens, which just SUCKS for me!! Damn windows! Plasmas are just for the most part better for the right enviorment meaning darker rooms. I not calling it quits yet for palsmas, especially these amazing Kuros, but i for see my love/hate relationship with my old Sony always being there and possibly leading me back t her again. Somebody convince me otherwise PLEASE
