Yes, I have a few:
Don't judge a TV based on what you see in BB, CC or even Magnolia. Find a polite salesmen and ask him or her for the remote so you can take each set out of "torch" mode and set it to user or cinema or movie mode (or whatever looks best). Then make some adjustments to the color, sharpness, brightness and contrast so that it looks good to your eye. Scroll through the features, get an idea of what they do and adjust so the picture looks even better to your eye. Then, and only then, should you compare the displays. Comparing TV sets on "torch" mode is useless.
Also, what Elite were you comparing to? If it was the 8th Generation, I will head to my local Magnolia this weekend to compare for myself (you just gave me something to do on Saturday, skeptical as I may be
), because right now as it stands, nothing
found at Magnolia touches the 8th Generation Pioneers.
