First, welcome to the forum. The flickering was from the feed, and not from the display. The VT25 did occasionally flicker utilizing 96 Hz, but most of the program viewing was done set to 60 Hz.

Just wondering if these things were evident to attendants, or it is because of the video-feed to our computers.
No I didn't but I was sitting off-axis. I would suspect that was also due to the feed, because on Saturday noone in the audience mentioned seeing it.

Thanks
From what i saw, I'd pick the Samsung or Panny.

Happy shopping.

Welcome to the forum!

The flickering on the VT was due to the 96Hz mode which would be out of sync with the video shot at 60Hz. You will notice that those monitors behind the news people on TV tend to flicker as well when they have a refresh rate different than the video filmed rate.

On the B&W grayscale test screen of the Samsung plasma they did say that there was a ting of green in the middle frequencies. Maybe that is what you saw, but no one noticed it there with actual material so this was likely another issue with the video feed.

...I dont think so as Robert at one time eluded that they may include a KURO as part of this shoot-out just for a comparison of KURO tech with todays models.High-end flat panel HDTV shoot-out event

Plus, I have never seen one of these Runco panels included in a panel shoot-out anywhere, ever....I for one would like to see how they stack up.....about even or blow the others out of the water. just curious, you understand.

Well, that was the impression that was given, but I could have been mistaken. Best to ask Robert directly.

...No mention of the shoot-out being 3D exclusive.....and as for the best panel....well, how can we judge if top of line models are not present?
I assume since Value Electronics is not a Runco dealer it would not benefit them to include those models in the contest....whadda' ya think?

I can't address your assumptions on Robert's behalf.
