Well, here I am posting and retracting previous post that I made while the darker side of my personality was again in control of what I allow my fingers to voice as my opinion, be it right or wrong....I do not wish to be viewed as a vile and contemptible part of this forum but as I have on occasion in the past allowed my mouth to overplay my sense of right and fair play....

I do not make this post or retract my previous post through any pressure placed upon me by the Administrators or Moderators of this fine forum but rather do so out a need to make things right......that little voice inside of your soul that nags at you when yo may have done someone an injustice.......hence being up at this late hour in an attempt to put things right.....
It should in no way really be of great concern to myself or any other poster here what preference or non-preference for display make or model any member here has or that they may or may not sway someones opinion by their remarks. The perspective owner should examine all of the facts available to them and make a good judgement based upon the many factors that are a part of their personal environment....Dsskid has been a helpful and informative member of this forum and if he chooses not to sip from the Panasonic Kool-aid so to speak he is well within his right not to do so and he is right in attempting to make others aware of potential shortcomings certain models have.....then the consumer can make their own judgement as to what is or is not important to them and their environment.....

I wish I could say that I will not allow the "darker" side of my personality to outweigh my good judgement in the future but alas I cannot....I am what I am and I will most likely be attempting to make amends for my poor judgement again in the future I do not ask for forgiveness, just that I be seen as the fair and good hearted person that I truly am....

sincerely,
Pappylap

Great post Pappy. It takes a big man to openly admit when they realize they might have went too far.

great post pappy, that was big of you to admit, I hope you and dsskid can atleast be amiable, even though you guys clearly don't see eye to eye. I know we all have our own opinions, and preferences; but we all should really remember that this is just a hobby, and it isn't worth all the hostility towards eachother!

You both have been here along time, and both have repeatedly helped people here. you're both an asset to the forums, even if you disagree.

I had the pleasure of meeting Jeff Meyer yesterday. Jeff stopped in on his NE calibrating tour and we reviewed our shoot-out wall and the differences between the panels. We focused on Samsung's PN58C8000 and Panasonic's TC-P58VT25.

Jeff measured the on/off contrast ratio and MLL and he says Panasonic's contrast ratio and black level is two times greater than Samsung's. This goes along with everyone's observations that the Panasonic delivers a richer image and far better black level.

Thanks Robert, these are the same figures that I discussed with DeWayne during the shootout's first night - the Panasonic had .004 and the Samsung .007-.008.

How many hrs do you currently have on the Panasonic and Samsung? According to the reports, the Panasonic VT25 should experience the first rise around 1500 hrs, at which time the Panasonic should be .007 -.008.

After the second rise? We'll have to what for that.

so you actually think that CNET saying they're not adjusting their ratings helps your arugment?

Also, your whole argument is based off of your speculation that the 2010 models will show the same level of increase as the 2009's. As I've said before "time will tell" and if the levels continue to increase above and beyond what we're led to believe by CNET and Panasonic, well I guess you can come in here and say "see I told you so". As far as right here, right now, all you have to go on is your speculation on what you THINK will happen.

Please don't repeat your tired, wornout line "they've already increased 2x" WE ALL KNOW THAT, THAT'S NOT THE ISSUE, THE ISSUE IS WHAT WILL HAPPEN FROM THIS POINT FORWARD!!

Why on Earth can't you understand that simple concept?

So as it stands now, after the FIRST rise, the black levels of the Panasonic and the Samsung will be equal.
Are you with me so far?

Panasonic stated another rise is coming, this is not speculation. Do you agree with this?

So common sense will tell you that after the SECOND rise, the Panasonic black level will be higher than the Samsung?

How much higher? We'll have to see, but it will be higher.

My purpose is not to come here and say "I told you so". It's to point out a flaw that isn't covered by any warranty, and depending on the importance to the buyer, may give them something to consider, rather than being surprised after the fact.

Period.

Not everybody seen big rises in the 09's, I didn't, I compared the two yesterday.
Only guy reported a rise with the S after 1000. None after 2000.
http://www./avs-vb/showthread.php?t=1218372

Why some models did at 200 you may never know. Could it have been improper break in disks?

It seems like if you got through 2000 hours you made it with little rises, glad I fell in that group.
