no theyre not, but chad b. has measured the 940c black level at .00067 which is still very good. i bet it beats "most" plasmas. only the best of the best will be better.
for reference, RTINGS has recently done their review of the JS9500(which technically has worse blacks than the 940c). interested to see if they review the 940c and what measurements they get.
Samsung JS9500 on their scale:
Black: 0.035 cd/m2
White: 108.7 cd/m2
Contrast: 3106 : 1
Samsung F8500 Plasma
Black: 0.032 cd/m2
White: 103.5 cd/m2
Contrast: 3324 : 1
Black: 0.011 cd/m2
White: 81.99 cd/m2
Contrast: 7454 : 1
still waiting on them to post calibration results too too at the beginning of this thread.
Black: 0.030 cd/m2
White: 102.2 cd/m2
Contrast: 3406 : 1
Black: 0.024 cd/m2
White: 101.3 cd/m2
Contrast: 4233 : 1
My 2013 Sony in the home office here :
Black: 0.022 cd/m2
White: 104.5 cd/m2
Contrast: 4750 : 1
Admittedly ofc setting aside 4K WCG and HDR Imagine that
Samsung VA panel ofc.
That being said I havent seen the 2015 Sony X940C or X930C or anything 2015 XBR instead just the 55 X850C meh ? and ( 65X850C with trilumuinius on) that looked real decent almost excellent or excxelent IMO.
I saw 50" Vizio P that looked rather ordinary to me and the 2015 55" 4K Vizio M that looked real decent for the $$
I saw the Samsung JS
9500 that aside from my dislike of curved screens looked excellent along with the real desent JS
8500 and decent JU 7100
and borderline excellent to excelent 2015 65" LG 4K LCD .
All the above impressions were at Best Buy and all that comes with that and I am looking forward to drooling in front of the X940C/X930C 's .
ofc all that being said the Sammie f8500 and Panny VT/ZT are excelent IMO also .
