A suggestion you made earlier regarding increasing the backlight in a bright room really paid off for me. I have been so frustrated with the bright room performance of my admitedly antique 79XBR900 I was ready to buy anything that promised better control of room reflections, instead of waiting for a replacement for the Z9D in a larger size. My set was professionally calibrated by Jeff Meyer and backlight was at 5. I changed it to 6 and it was like night and day in viewability in a bright room. The loss in color accuracy is more than offset by how I can now see the picture. So, thanks. Now I can comfortably wait for the larger sizes.
