Who are you trying to kid? Here is what CNET said about the LN40B750:CNET Review of LN40B750:
Standard definition: The LNB750 evinced generally solid standard-def picture quality
. According to our tests the display handled every line
of a DVD source and the shots of grass and steps from the detail test looked good
. The set eliminated jaggies from video-based sources well
, and its noise reduction cleaned up the lowest-quality shots of skies and sunset with aplomb
. Finally the LNB750 passed 2:3 pull-down test by eliminating moire from the stands behind the racecar.
Now, let's contrast that with CNET's review of the high-end V10.CNET Review of TC-PV10:
Standard-definition: The TC-PV10 series was a mediocre performer
with standard-def material. It resolved every line of the DVD format, although details weren't quite as sharp as on the Samsung
, for example. The V10 did a sub-par job with moving diagonal lines and stripes
on the waving American flag, leaving plenty of jaggies
along the edges. Noise reduction was solid, on the other hand, and both Video NR and MPEG NR settings contributed to removing moving motes and snow from low-quality shots of skies and sunsets. Finally, the set properly engaged 2:3 pulldown to remove moiré from the grandstands behind the racecar.
