    I'm guessing he'll do EDT. If he does EST, buzzard, the announcement will occur an hour earlier though.

    This TV comes with two very nice 3D active shutter glasses. 3D looks awesome! Great to see high-quality 3D on a 70" panel (:

    More photo are up, one with me standing next to this monster.

    Now it's a bit too late.

    .
    My visit was a spur of the moment thing bruzzi. Hopefully we'll see each other soon. Man this thing is a beauty.

    The black level is amazing. OTB THX Mode looks stunning. They've done an outstanding job minimizing the halo/blooming effect. Colors were spot on while the Grey scale needed some minor work.

    Overall this display is the real deal.

    Hi everyone,

    Zone count: 23x13, as best we can tell from running the PC mouse test. That yields 299 discrete zones.

    Kevin was absolutely right: this thing has the best color properties I have ever seen (plasma or LCD), an out-of-the-box RGB balance that is shockingly good, an out-of-the-box gamma that needs a bit of tweaking, but is very strong, motion resolution that is the best I've seen on any LCD so far (but plasma still trumps it here for sure), black levels that I just don't believe, picture adjustment controls a-go-go (and they all work, as best I can tell), and what look like very minimal halo/blooming (I don't want to swear to that until I do more testing). If I had the money for one of these things, I think I'd buy it.

    More tomorrow. It's late here.

    Yours,

    David

    David, this was the 70X5FD, correct?

    If so, then the dimming zone hierarchy seems to be as follows:

    Sharp Elite 70X5FD: 23 x 13 = 299
    LG Infinia 55LW9800: 24 x 12 = 288
    Sharp Elite 60X5FD: ???
    Sony XBR 55HX929: 15 x 7 = 105
