I see. But the reason I posted was some hope that someone might have
measured practically usable Dmax (say the density where the slope of
the tangent line drops to 1/2 of that of the straight line segment, or
whatever other criterion to determine the point where the line breaks
off) and s/he is willing to post... After seeing several online review
sites I'm impressed by the vocabulary of the reviewers but not by
conveying this piece of critical information... Maybe because if
reviewers do this, then they will never get a piece of equipment for
evaluation in the future?
