rtings.com question

Hello,

Thanks for all the help up until now. This should be my last post until moving in a week. What does it mean when rtings.com says "Not the best for watching movies at night"? Watching with no lights on? Low lighting?

Thanks in advance!

they are saying that in a low light environment.. showing typical movie content(including night scenes) that may have less detail(mostly in nightime scenes/background) , the tv reviewed may have even less detail than the normal tv .. generally they are reviewing ips / or lower tier tv.. I watched a cheap ips for 3 yrs.. it was ok, but it was only 32" so the background wasn't very important..to make a long story shorter & easier to understand.. ips panels have lower contrast ,that tend to make blacks in a dark scene GREY..

Typically this means that it has poor local dimming or bad black levels.

"Watching movies at night" means watching the TV in a room with dim to no lights. AKA at night time or basement, or room with good curtains.

They reviewed the 65" VA panel on Rtings.

Might I add that the p65 looks stunning in low light atmospheres!
