I'm just hoping it has significantly better blacks than my PN50B860 plasma, which Chad gave a 2 for MLL. The only thing is I don't know how good the UN46c6800 is in comparison because there isn't any reviews. I don't want to go to a 46" from a 50" but if the picture quality is that much better than an LH90, then I'll do it.
comparing LCD to plasma is not a fair game to judge black level.
Let me share with you what i summarize from the link (chart).
ignore the plasma section.
compare samsung B8000 and LG LH90 - samsung better right?
now what will the answer be comparing C6800 and LG LH90 - will C6800 be better or equal?
and also i personally find new LG 55LH90 is one of the best 55" LCD.
The LH90 was voted worse than the 860 for blacks. This is really upsetting, I want a tv with better blacks, not worse. Oh well, back to the drawing board for me I guess.
I remember looking at that chart and wondering the same thing at the time...WTF? The LH90 definitely has better blacks than the Samsung 860, from the time I had it in house I would compare it more to the Panasonic V10 for black levels if I had to compare it to a plasma.
"In fact the LG's blacks were nearly indistinguishable during dark scenes from those of the Samsung B750, A950, and B7000 LCDs, and not quite as deep as those of the Sony XBR8, the Panasonic V10, and the Pioneer--but again the differences were subtle, even in a dark room in side-by-side comparisons."
Maybe some of the people voting were viewing the tv from an angle and that's why they gave it a lower score? Thanks for the input guys, I think I'll get the 55" LH90, so I can have better picture quality and a bigger screen.
