The LH90 was voted worse than the 860 for blacks. This is really upsetting, I want a tv with better blacks, not worse. Oh well, back to the drawing board for me I guess.
I remember looking at that chart and wondering the same thing at the time...WTF? The LH90 definitely
has better blacks than the Samsung 860, from the time I had it in house I would compare it more to the Panasonic V10 for black levels if I had to compare it to a plasma.
"In fact the LG's blacks were nearly indistinguishable during dark scenes from those of the Samsung B750, A950, and B7000 LCDs, and not quite as deep as those of the Sony XBR8, the Panasonic V10, and the Pioneer--but again the differences were subtle, even in a dark room in side-by-side comparisons."
