That is really bad! 1,000,000:1 Dynamic? C'mon Samsung and Panasonic!
I saw the Panny 42PX80U in a semi-darkened area of BB next to a Samsung 71 series LCD. Somehow on an all black screen the 25,000:1 CR on the 71 series had deeper blacks than the 80U 1,000,000:1. Also, I didn't really see any deeper blacks on the 80U over last years Samsung (however I must admit I didn't grab the remotes though).
Guess manufacturers are just making up numbers now.
