A higher black level helps a tv to produce greater depth in the image produced.
A higher black level generally improves the TV's shadow detail when properly calibrated.
Scenes with very dark/black areas, such as many space scenes in sci-fi movies, appear more authentic.
Thanks for the education, and also not being nasty about it.
In all honesty if the blacks look or are very close to blacks, than i have no issue at all with blacks, like i said before the only time that i got really annoyed is when the previous Samsung i could not get proper skin tones. The skin always looked very pink no matter what setting or how much green was added, even after change of a main board and that board where the antenna plugs in, also a screen change did not help. I also like a very clear picture without motion blur, they are the most important things that i look at in a tv, but then again i may not be as fussy as others may be. As for Plasma v LCD-Led i have no idea what is the best, but i do like that crisp look in the LCD, the Plasma do have a nice picture as well, so really it is up to the individual when it's their choice i suppose. Like both, but the fact that Plasma waste a lot of power is something that i would look into in the future. Power bills are disgustingly high in the state of Victoria Australia.
