AFAIK, Sony and Sammy use the same Korean company to manufacture a good deal of their LCD parts.
Black levels isn't an artifact, but yes, they are lacking no matter the LCD. You have ones that probably feature the best LCD can do (Sharp is one that does LCD well too). IMHO, shadow detail has a long way to come in terms of LCDs though.
I'm sticking with my CRT until something better rolls around. I was toying with the idea of picking up an Ampro 4600, but I may venture into digital if new, cheap 1080p models do come out.
Let me ask you, you felt BB was great. Did you notice any artifacts? Anything that underwhelmed you?
I know the title was hyped, but I think it lived up to it in many ways. The start of the movie (the garden) and all the trippy Scarecrow scenes were especially wild.
