So i'm getting a new tv tomorrow, but trying to decide between 2. I'm looking for picture quality first and foremost.


1) Samsung UN46D6000


or


2) Sharp Aquos LC46LE8304 Quattron


Price is nearly the same.


My first thought was the Aquos, but after seeing many reviews, the samsung was touted as the best as far as picture. The reviews for the Aquos said that the black levels weren't very dark.


However, when i went into best buy, the picture looked amazing.


Any help would be appreciated.

I imagine the Samsung will have the edge with PQ but you have to watch out for uniformity issues due to the edge-lit LED design. The Sharp could also have uniformity issues though (is the Sharp edge-lit or full array?).

This doesn't mean much, as the store mode picture settings are used and the very bright store lighting will hide poor blacks easily. Only a dimly lit or dark room will show how good or bad the blacks really are (once the picture mode is set to the most accurate mode, likely cinema/movie).

Samsung if you want the best, Sharp if you just want a Sharp.

What I've noticed on the Samsungs:


+ Motion had less artifacts and appeared overall smoother on the Samsung D line than comparative tv's.


- Screen uniformity fears with LED tech. (not sure how well the Sharp's cope with this)


- According to review sites, the Samsung doesnt do as well with SD material if this is a concern.


- If you play fast games, the Samsung will probably have to be put into Game Mode to reduce a pretty high input lag. I dont know how the Sharp compares, but I believe they have been known for better lag performance.


Finally, even with all of the negatives I am planning on picking up a Samsung 46D6000 or 46D6420 later since Ive always thought they have the most "punchy" and vibrant picture, and can easily make a return to BB if need be. Good luck!
