When you buy an LCD no matter the brand you risk getting a poor panel ( CMO panels for example).
Sony,Samsung,LG,Panasonic,Sharp and just about all other brands have a contracts with various panel manufactures.. it's just that Samsung or any of them will never tell us what panels they use for what manufacturing lines. I remember I bought a A550 with a CMO panel and it was horrid.
To my knowledge Manufactures have panel contracts with:
Panasonic: LG's IPS or Panasonics IPS-A
In my opinion, it's almost a gamble with buying LCD's today.. you could get a poor panel or a great panel in the same model line.. It's almost like a scam.
That's why I don't like comparing Sony:Samsung or LG:Panasonic ::Sharp.. Whoever is best based on the panel you get.
