Guys,


How close are these 2 sets?


Do they both offer 3D CMS adjustments?


Same PQ?


Main differences?



thx

The 860 costs more because it's skinny. Apart from that they are virtually identical, except the 850/860 series is said to have poorer blacks.

860 has a dartker filter, which helps maintain better contrast in the daytime. I've heard the colors can be dialed in more accurately as well on the 860, and it offers day/night calibration options.

Are the ISF modes truly different templates like on the Elites?


If so, what do they really offer? Better gamma, Higher output,etc?


thx

Sorry, just sold my B860 this evening. Never got around to exploring the extra calibration mode. (you must activate this from the service menu). I don't think they are ISFccc modes. I think it only allows for an extra set of calibrations, like for day/night. One of the reasons I bought the B860 was simply to set it next to my 500M for comparison in my living room. I wanted to see for myself how the B860 stacked up to the 500M.

The Night/Day calibration modes can be unlocked through an easy Service Menu adjustment on the PN50B650, so that's one less advantage.


The only difference between the two models is an improved AR filter and slimmer design. Might be a slight difference in speaker quality, as well.
