D-Nice, i think he is talking about the "dirty" whites associated with the Panny plasmas that sit next to the LCD's at BB and CC. Many of us LCD people complain that plasma whites look dull while LCD whites look more natural and brighter. When you look at a 1080p Panny plasma during a snow scene, for example, the snow looks smokey and "dirty".
I'm on the edge of a cliff right now because the Sammy 5271 LCD renders the best PQ of any LCD, RPTV, and most plasmas, IMO. But this model is having a major issue with their VP not keeping up with the 120hz/8ms RT which manifests itself into what we are calling the TBE (triple ball effect) where frames lag behind during sports and scenes like in POTC with the swordplay.
This is why i am about to "just say no" to LCD's. My fear of burn in has subsided mainly by reading these threads, nothing, not even a whiff of IR/burn-in. My choice would be the 5010. These pictures you guys are posting are gorgeous. It's no coincidence that of all the LCD's out there my choice was the 5271 because of the deep blacks and strong shadow detail. These kuros deliver the goods. But when i watch football, baseball, and hockey, i don't want to see 3 pucks or 3 balls. Watching POTC in BR on a 5271 was surreal, i get the feeling it will be the same on a kuro.
