D-Nice, do you think the 6010/150FD are close to the same size as the current 60" models. I have a Sanus Vmpl3 wall mount that works with the 1540, just wondering if the new models will work with this mount?


Thanks:


Bob

D-Nice, do you have specs on 6010 yet - or specifically, the width and height of it? I need to create a cardboard mock-up in my campaign to convince roommate this is not too big for our apt.

from all the pictures we've seen so far, 8th gen looks awfully like the 7th gen series. If there is any variation at all, I would imagine that it would be within an inch or so, either vertically or horizontally, so I would run with the specs from their current 60" panel to form your mockup. cardboard yourself away.


I've got a 50" mockup piece myself. Sometimes I sit and stare at it for a several minutes at a time, just pretending. It's fun. The poor kids of today. They just can't be left to their own imaginative devices like this, with all the structured play dates, organized activities and what not.

Is the 6010 more power efficient than the previous generation, and does the new tech make the 8g panels any more bullet proof with IR and burn-in? Thanks.

I agree. I have a friend who bought her daughters lots of pricey educational toys. Their favorite? A large cardboard box. And I bet it's better for their education too. Say, if I could talk myself into really enjoying watching that piece of cardboard, I could save a heap of cash.

Use the 6070 and 1540 as your mockup specs. The 6010 is pretty much the same (give or take a few mm).

Nope. The 60" will actually use more power than the 6070/1540.

Maybe you should replace the roommate too!

Nope, as much as I like plasma tv's, I like her more. And I get her point. She's a yoga teacher, teaches sometimes in our living room. I'm not sure a giant tv makes a room feel yogic.


Okay, that's it for me and off-topic. Hopefully, my next post in this thread will be when I'm an owner.

Hey, D-Nice, I have a few questions about calibration of the new 8Gs (I'm thinking about going with the PRO-110FD, by the way):


Do you think it's a good idea to get this panel ISF calibrated, or do you think that would be overkill? I'm really interested to try out your settings once you get them published, but I'm just wondering if for an investment like this (and for a new technology, as well) if it would make sense to take it to the next level. FYI, I've also used DVE in the past and am very familiar and comfortable with using that DVD to calibrate a set, although that was only on SD CRTs and never on an HDTV or plasma.


If you do think it's a good idea to go with an ISF tech, should i go through the break-in procedure before I schedule the calibration? Or is that not necessary?


Will ISF techs be prepared to calibrate a brand new panel like the 110FD, or will they need to take a refresher course, get some other kind of special instruction from Pioneer, or bring along any different equipment before they go out to calibrate these panels? Will service menus be so similar to the 7Gs that taking a refresher course to calibrate the 8Gs is unnecessary?


And lastly, can you or anyone else here recommend a good ISF tech in the NYC area? I'm thinking about ordering the panel through Harvey Electronics and seeing if they have techs, but would like to hear if they're any good first.


Thanks for your help!

I have decided to exercise some impulse control, and just wait for the 8th Generation cardboard mockup. It will have much deeper imaginary blacks, and it will be a complete imaginary SED mockup killer.

Oh how I envy you. There's a hard limit to my imagination budget, and so, I must console myself with what I already have now. Please share your cognitive settings upon receiving your new 8th gen mockup. Perhaps I can find a way to adapt them to mine, if I can somehow manage to budget my conceptualizations carefully enough.
