I'm basing all of this on the following: Going by the latest flatpanel shootout the Elite measured an mll of .0004 ft/L, yet it doesn't have as good contrast as the VT50 that measured in around .0018-.002 ft/L. Contrast being ANSI or perceived depth with pictures and checkerboard patterns. Even on the terrible pictures taken from the shootout, the VT50 appears to have more depth/pop than the Elite at high and low apl content on the whole.
If the new Elite is able to give better ANSI contrast numbers, along with an even deeper black during low apl content (where you can't tell the bezel from the screen) how much better is OLED really going to be? If black is so deep that no luminance can be seen and they solve the color issue, what's really going to be that much better?
My old ST30 was about 80% of my Kuro- just comparing blu ray material, so since the 9.5G black is so intensely deep, the colors reference, the gamma spot on, the motion amazing, and with an ANSI score of around 50,000:1, how the heck can OLED be so strikingly better? I think if you include 0 mll- that's maybe 10% better than the 9.5G sets.
If the LGs end up having some color shifting issues like those reported by a few CES attendees, then that alone does not best plasma. There were those that found the VT50 demos more impressive than the OLED demos.
I completely believe OLED will best plasma- maybe not this year though, but there are all these people now amazed with the VT50, the set that trounced the Elite at the shootout and there's still a 3 yr old panel that beats it in measurements. The major flatpanel advancement happened with Kuro and then with the 9Gs and basically neared perfection with the 9.5G sets. If I ever get the D-Nice black level adjustment, I suspect I wouldn't even care about OLED at that point.
