I'm ready to "bite the bullet" on a new TV, and am having the hardest time making a decision.
It seems like no matter which one I choose, there's the potential for some issue to bug the hell out of me.
I'm concerned about Panasonic's rising black levels, as well as Samsung's "buzz", the LG seems good, but the black levels don't seem to come close to the others.
I don't do much (if any) gaming, and am primarily interested in watching Blu-ray movies along with HDTV content (if that helps).
I loathe the "soap opera" look many HDTVs give movies, so I like the fact that the LG does 3:3 pulldown, and also that I can get a bigger screen at roughly the same wall-space and price as the others.
So, at the end of the day, my nagging questions are:
How bad are the black levels on the LG really
? How would they compare to a Panasonic with the higher black levels active?
I plan on buying over the internet, so the prospect of getting a "buzzing" Samsung, then having to deal with returning it concerns me greatly. Have there been reports of the 2010 models doing this as well? If so, any idea what the odds are of getting a "buzzer"?
OK, I think that's enough for now. Sorry for rambling, all of this has my brain in a jumble.THANKS
in advance for your assistance!
