How about the side bars for 4:3 content? I suspect the Samsung struggles with those.The black bars are great. Samsung has a specific setting for the black bars, called Cinema Black, which enabled makes the bars really dark, and they blend in with the tiny bezel and the background, so you don't notice them. Similar to P70, although I almost feel P70 had a tad more light fluctuation in the black bars in the areas above the brighter parts of the scene, where the light zones were quite active... But overall I'd say about the same...
