RE: Panasonic TXP60ZT65B now or wait for Panasonic AX900 4K TV

Guys if you want temporary calibration settings go to the review of the zt65 on c-net.com the review of the tv is there plus the calibration settings .every panel is different but they may be an improvement on what you already have.or type in steven withers calibration settings see what pops up.

if you register your ZT's with Panasonic you should get an email with a link to a range of calibration settings you can download onto USB and then transfer into the TV. The settings were supplied by steve withers (AVForums reviewer and professional calibrator) I believe.

Excellent! Steve is a great guy ,really knows his stuff ,he was even in the April/May issue of home cinema magazine doing an interview on the benifets of calibration .he will take you through the whole process and answer any questions you may have,spent a good 3 hours on my ZT.ok it's expensive but I spent £3800 on the TV another £200 on getting the best out of it is money well spent.

RE: Panasonic TXP60ZT65B now or wait for Panasonic AX900 4K TV

This is my first post ever - and what a thread to make it in!

I find myself in virtually the same position.  Needing a new, bigger screen to replace my trusty old 32" (yes, 32"!) Sony.  Bigger house, bigger room, etc, etc, etc.

I was really drawn to the VT65 but just impossible to find now.  Electrical Discount UK still appear to have ZT65s though and I am sorely tempted, but hesitating to push the button on what will be a £2500 splurge!

Luke - sounds like you're convinced you made the right decision instead of waiting for the AX900 (or as I was contemplating, the AX800)?

My big hang-up over 4k is given there's no broadcast content, and since that'll be what my missus in particular mostly watches, why would I go 4k?  From the screens I've seen demo'd I've been a bit disappointed with the upscaling of 1080i broadcast content to 4k.

If you don't mind me asking, where did you pick yours up?  The one thing I've heard as a slight negative is the fan noise.  Has that been noticeable at all?

Tempting. Especially as it's from a Pana store, but... the 60" ZT65 is already pushing it size-wise. A 65" VT65 is not something I'll ever convince the missus about!
