I suggest you look at one in non-demo mode before making any final opinions since everybody is different on what they like or don't like.
The model I saw - and that impressed me so much - was indeed in demo mode. I will have to check out one in regular usage.
I just assumed screen quality would not be affected by it being in demo mode... but, given your comment, I'll look into it.
I would be willing to put up with quirky software, if the screen is as good as what I saw there.
