I believe your assessment, but the video feed on the Panasonics looked awful. The Samsung plasmas, in comparision on video feeds, looked gorgeous. How do think the Samsungs fared against Panny this year on the show floor?
I'm still surprised that they keep making all these technological advancements and yet they can't find a way to get the panels truly black within the amount of money they have to work with?!?!?!?
Also, you're the first person to report a color shift on the LG OLED- I'm surprised no one else has brought this up.
A really good A-B comparison is impossible at CES, with the variety of material shown and the distance between booths, so my analysis of picture quality is certainly subjective. Samsung's booth was a mob scene, so I didn't spend a lot of time there, so Samsung could have had something comparable. I looked at a lot of LCDs, and didn't see anything that came close to the Panasonic Plasmas. I was expecting more out of the LCDs this year. The Elites were very good, but I still saw some black level gimmickry and 3D ghosting going on.
I don't know why no one else brought up the LG OLED color shift issue. It wasn't hard to spot, since they had three sets in a row, and the two on each end were both showing the same material. There was a small brightness reduction, too. I looked for it, because I wanted to see how it compared to LCD. I think sometimes people get a little too wowed by the technology, and forget to keep an eye out for the defects.
