Can someone confirm eventually, specifying what TV set (brand/model) does the job better than Kuros?
Black levels: unmatched (may be on par with Panny/Sammy 2012?)
Color decoding: Samsung D8000???
Motion Sharpness: ???
Overall picture: unmatched
Black levels: the Sharp Elite is the daddy @0,0004ft with the Kuro Elite 9,5G @0,0005ft slightly behind. The best Panasonics (ST50-VT50) are @0,0026ft but there's no tint at all to the black levels on mine ST50 which is a first outside of OLED and CRT technology.
Contrast: clearly the Sharp Elite with better MLL and peak whites on an ANSI patern. The Kuro 9,5G is second and Kuro 9G third.
Color decoding: clearly the D8000.
Motion Sharpness: Samsung Plasma's without question. Panasonic is doing their best to come close. The Kuro's are terrible by comparison.
Overall picture: allround the Kuro still is one of the best pictures because it does everything very well whereas the Samsungs are still bad at black level and dynamic range (contrast). The Panasonics are still behind the Kuro 9G and 9,5G in terms of black level and dynamic range but much closer than Samsung while Samsung has better color decoding and better motion.
Technically the LG and Samsung OLED should
rank 1 together in every department above once they launch.
