Hi to all. And a Happy New Year.

I was considering buying the LX608D but have heard that it is NOT very bright.
Is it alot duller than the LX508D?

I intend to use it for the following mainly:

Blu-Ray Movies (PS3)
HD-DVD Movies (Toshiba EP30)
Gaming (XBOX 360, PS3, Wii)
Also Sky+, SD-DVD movies and Divx playback (Pioneer LX60)

Would the brightness pose a problem for me. My living room is not overly lit and I have the curtains closed anyway.
I do like my images bright. I sit about 8ft away from the screen.
Would the LX508D be a better solution in terms of brightness for me?

Any information would be welcomed.

Many thanks.

This has been answered many times, the brightness levels are fine on the 60" sets, yes they do dont got as bright as the 50" but when you have them set properly its not an issue.

As a guide out of the box contrast is set at 40, after calibration contrast on a 50" settles at 18-22, on a 60" it is 24-28, those settings give a vertually identical luminance (brightness) reading.
