Thanks jsdad , very good post. It's interesting though that the black levels are such a big thing when it comes to tvs these days , I honestly really don't mind if the blacks are a little bit grayer than they are supposed to be , I care more about the contrast and the sharpness , the clarity of the image , but may be those issues are connected , I don't know. It's obvious that the 850 PQ is better but if its only the black levels , I think I'll just stick with a cheaper 750 .[/quote]
Black levels will affect perceive contrast, infact many say that black levels are the number one feature for a set.
