My pleasure! I thought the 75" panel might be S-IPS from the sub-pixel shape, but others seem to think it is S-PVA? My XBR8 has S-PVA panel, but a much older generation and looks different.
The 65" panel appears to have a corner/edge domain fill, so it looks a lot different up close than the 75". Going to try to get the 65" tested soon. I didn't notice anything bad about the 65" when I initially checked it out, just that it has a panel that reminds me of the HX9, though obviously not the exact same panel.
The Leo Bodnar tester measures pixel response + processing lag, so it's numbers are generally on the conservative side. As others have noted, it doesn't put plasma displays in the best of light. Who's buying new plasma TVs these days anyways?

It's interesting how even though LCDs are S&H, they scan the screen sort of like a CRT! The LB tester is also useful for confirming panel refresh rate ( (BB - TB) * 1000 = Hz)! One of Samsung's 2014 large models (I don't recall) actually refreshed bottom up! D:
