I made this post a week or so ago, but this thread is so active that it has been buried and it seems most of you didn't see it:

It seems like the A00 panels have introduced something new, which may or may not be related to the crosshatching. These lines are much smaller than on the A01, but still noticeable to the naked eye if you look closely.
I have a few more images of these ghosting tests, but they pretty much all indicate the same thing. the A00 has noticeably darker trails from too much overdrive.
These tests were run with the exact same settings each time. The camera was mounted on a tripod and focused on the same area of the screen (I swapped out the screens but kept the same stand). The colors are slightly different because the A00 has a different tint out of the box, and I didn't want to spend the time calibrating it with my Spyder 4 since I was returning it.
In addition to the ghosting (which was what I was primarily comparing), I also noticed VERY small diagonal lines on the NEW A00 panel, not the original A00. The crosshatching is NOT visible on the A01 panel in those images, because the pictures were taken head on (and the A01 and earlier crosshatching is only visible when you are looking at the screen at an angle). However, there ARE small diagonal lines visible on the A00 panel, even though the image was taken head on (in the exact same position as for the A01 panel).
This image is blown up a lot, so the lines on the A00 panel are actually much smaller than the "normal" A01 and earlier crosshatching lines we are used to ( actually took these photos with a telephoto because i was too lazy to switch lenses...). These lines are very faint, and only visible if you click on the images I posted to look at the larger ones. I have even higher resolution images that show the lines even more clearly (the pictures were taken with a 16 MP camera), but I didn't want to upload them because of their size.
Also, in the second set of images you can see that the overdrive ghosting shadow on the A00 panel for the right square is a totally different color than that of the A01 panel (yellow instead of purple).Edited by Mjolnir125 - 9/8/13 at 10:38pm
