Right, because I would never think to play with the settings, adjust for my personal preferences, check the menus etc as part of demo'ing a TV.

I find it difficult to believe you sat down in a chair 9 feet away, adjusted greyscale settings, convinced the store to turn off the lights and then proceeded to do a spyder calibration.

Why would I do that? That wouldn't represent my viewing area at home any better then the ridiculous lighting in a large retailer like Best Buy. I did exactly what I said. If it needs more description because people want the gory details, I grabbed a remote and flipped through the various settings, most of which are presets, and got a good general idea for the visual performance of the various TVs. Like most people I, sadly, don't have a true home cinema... so setting the TV up at the store like it will be in one would not do me much good. I have argued with my wife for years about the lack of a home cinema, but she unfortunately does not see the same amount of value in it that I do.

I realize that there are people, including people here, who are much more attune to the world of video then I am. I also realize that the very idea that I would dare comment on the quality of a TV brand without a formal resume declaring my various qualifications and a precise description of all of the multi-thousand dollar equipment me and my e-peen have purchased over the years is just techno-blasphemy. I humbly beg for your forgiveness. I am not worthy. I am more from that low-life scum that just buys the TV that looks the best to my own eyes while leaving me with enough money to do other things like eat bacon.
