How do you tell if the box has been opened? The two I have had just have plastic clips (x4) holding the box to the base. Easy to put them back in as I did this to store the box.
Got a third screen coming now so just wondering if you can tell on the outside. Neither boxes had seal stickers!
So annoying the banding, after calibration the picture is extremely good, except the pan contrast banding. Some shots which you would assume to contain banding dont, then others it does. The sky panasonic film into thingy (not the xmas version) is bad on mine current one.
Previously opened boxes will have a run of clear parcel tape over the original seal, the boxes we encountered had the tape cut very much to the exact length.

Can anyone post their thx settings for bright and dark room? Much appreciated! I've also noticed that the 3d doesn't look quite as deep on thx as it does on standard.
Looking at the THX settings that have been posted elsewhere on the net, the reason the 3D doesn't look as deep, is that standard uses some of the processing functions of the TV and increased sharpness. So with the THX settings you are getting a more natural picture but it will look a little different to the standard preset (this is to try and artificially make the image look better) Also you need to calibrate the THX settings on a set by set basis to get the actual desired results. There is no way without any greyscale correction you can get within the THX required dE of less than 3 without this.

3D THX is way dull!
just the vertical banding letting it down TBH.

1) Generally the picture is great, only the thin vertical banding lines say about 20 of them across the screen!
2) no black/light issues etc.
These bands are mostly hidden, but always visable on panning long shots on football.
My question is does anyone have a vertical banding free set on football? It would be easy to answer that you don't have any banding as generally I can NOT see any. Anyone had this issue, swapped the set out and got a better one? I have read on this thread people have eventually got a perfect or better one, but just asking directly on football.
Just watched Megamind 3D, Eastenders skyHD and great picture with not visable issues!!
Please someone as I'm not sure whether just to keep the one I have as this will be screen 3!!!
P.S. I have read technical reports that this style of panel will always have these thin vertical bands, so am I looking for something I can't have?
