No one ever said the KS8000 was better than an OLED in terms of black level - I actually said the complete opposite. Try reading first. :rolleyes:

This may not be a popular opinion among the plasma purists, but I have to say after having the 65” Samsung KS8000 on the wall for a week or two, it really blows away the Kuro 5080-HD that I...

I'm 17mi from Roxborough, and have also found WCAU to be very problematic lately. I get the more "difficult" channels just fine (WPVI, WHYY) and about 45 total, and I'm using a relatively cheap $40...

I think I would benefit from increased brightness relative to my 720p 8G Kuro. I do not have a dedicated theater room. It is a living room set with west-facing windows, so there is a good chunk of...

Thanks for the reply. I'm well aware that OLED is far and away the best PQ. However, that is also well out of my price range.
