It was a little hard to compare
The 1080p LCD displays went like this in order:
Sony, Samsung, Sharp & Mitsubishi
The 46" were on the top row & the 40"/42"/37" equivalent of that same brand beneath them.
All the sets were running the same 1080i loop of some CGI movie(don't know the name), about a talking bear & some animals in a forest!?
The Sharp 46" had by far & away the deepest black levels, yet the banding was just insane on the displays. not even something you have to look for, it stood out like a sore thumb at the first glance.
Contrast did look a little better on the Sharp as well if not quite accuarte as the Sony.
The Mitsubishi looked comparable to the Sammy & Sony very much, maybe the black levels were a tad lighter as the others seemd to be in dynamic modes (couldn't really compare it with the Sony XBR2, it had the worst case of backlight leakage I seen so far)
The biggest problem was the purple tint which was extremely noticeable in the background sky.
I didn't mess around too much with the all the single color options, but from what I did could not fix it.
I don't know, I'm going to Fry's in a few days & check the displays there some more.
