I think they do. I owned a Sharp a few years back. (It was a television). But the televisions, in that time didn`t have the sharpness or the color accuracy that the Sharp had. Of course, the Sony Trinitrone in Japan, had very accurate and sharp pictures. Then the new-kid-in-town, Samsung.

Color accuracy was very off. Flat panels, still new. Panasonic plasma`s came to life, then, Liqiud displays, started hitting shelves.

Of course, Panasonic, made promises for making unbelievably large dispalys for the masses. Economic problems and liquid displays for laptops started taking off, making the idea a long-shot for high profite.

Liquid display was a common household item in every day life. I remember a 3mm thick calulator with a display from sharp, way back in 90`s, very cool technology. (It was during the bubble economy in Japan, when new idea`s were being applied) discontinued.

Sadly, ( I think it was ) the recession caused many discontinuation, in ideas and progresses of many day technologys`.

I guess, Samsung, naturaly would make the revenue to survive. They may, or may not, continue to emulate the path, of the old companies, but the idea is a cliche.

The end, in my experience, the intuition of the individual is the ultimate factor in the decision on what they decide to purchase.

Go with your gut.

You think they do and the rest of your post provided nothing to back up that untruth!

No seriously, each TV will have it's own issues.

The Panasonic 800U when calibrated rivals the KUROS in picture quality.
just my two cents.
I heard that SAMMY's customer service is pretty bad, just what i gleamed from the forum....
And yes the pink band on a pure white screen is a flaw in the Sammy....

Actually, the Kuros went on sale and I bought one.

How do their LCDs perform when the lights are out compared to when they are on

I guess I don't quite get the drift of that last leading question. Is it that you feel Samsung has an excellent AR coating for both light and dark environments, or something else ?

Thanks, Scotty

My daughter had to have service on her Samsung due powering on issues. The service CSR was nice and thorough, the service was prompt and the repair guy said Samsung is great dealing with both him and the customers.
