I bought a Sony 47W802A yesterday. It's a great tv input lag wise, but I just can't seem to get over the crappy black levels of this tv. No matter what settings I use, if i watch the tv in a dark room, blacks are more like dark grey. The enhanced contrast enhancer fixes blacks for black screens, but as soon as something bright appears, the contrast adjusts and it gets distracting.
I could have gotten the Panasonic ST60, but keep hearing the input lag sucks, and there seems to be a significant amount of babysitting that needs to be done on the tv because of IR/Burn in. I don't wan to deal with that.
I don't want another samsung because I have had a 2 month back and forth problem with customer service on my last tv. And i'm not a fan of Toshiba, Vizio, or LG.
Seems like the only tv that can rival plasma level blacks is the Sony W900A,but that only comes in 55 inches which is too big for my living space. Why it doesn't come in 47 inches I will never know.
Should I just deal with it? Anyone with a St60 care to chime in?
