Actually, somebody has
run tests. CNET reviewed both models, and made direct comparisons between the G10 and S1 (in the G10's review). They found the G10 had better overall colors and black levels.
"As for the other displays, despite the S1's identical contrast ratio specification, it appeared lighter in near-black areas than the G10, and couldn't match the latter's color accuracy (the S1 dipped into green)." -- cnet

As for CNET, and whether or not you trust them... that's another story. Some people love them, some people hate them. I'm in the middle. I simply lump them in with all the other review sites, and view them as a whole. It's always best not to put too much stock in a single source, but rather try to get as many opinions as possible.
On a side note -- I'll take CNET's word over your
word word, any day, romanesq
. You've broken rules here at the community in regards to putting down other's prouduct/brand choices, and you've proven to be a very rude person. I simply don't trust you.
Anyway, the S1 and G10 share most of their components. No doubt. But whether or not the S1 can achieve identicle performance, remains to be seen. So far the only credible source I've found that's reviewed both sets was CNET, and they say the G10 is better.
I upgraded from the S1 to the G10, and I've not seen any significant differences between the two, but I only spent a short time with the S1, and just now getting my G10 out of break-in. For the record, I made the upgrade because a couple extra features I wanted, not because of any supposed improved PQ, and I had not even seen that review when I made the decision.
Here's hoping that all S1 and G10 owners will be happy!
