    Full array LED back-lit will challenge that notion. OLEDs will give you colours you didn't think were possible.

    Oh, so you speak from experience? Or bias?

    Dude, it's the better tech hands down.

    I also have a plasma and a full array LED in my house.

    So I speak from experience and the almighty truth.

    Not the best for hockey due to the whiteness, but otherwise love it.

    actually, guess I'm just used to the brigtness on LED's. Jerseys etc. are still very white, but the ice isn't. I guess that's just natural.

    Massive. I'm a bit surprised though that its black levels aren't better with the full array. I assume it implements local dimming? It *should be* better. Of course exactly what constitutes "full array" is not clear -- they don't have an individual LED backlight for every pixel, of course, so who knows.

    Don't get me wrong, it's an amazing TV and the picture is incredibly sharp and vibrant, but it still has issues with very dark scenes and sports like hockey and football. It took me a very long time to tweak it to get it right, like several months of fiddling with settings and time on avsforum.com with other owners. All that "motion enhancement" crap actually makes the picture worse. I got it at a Boxing Day Sale price and could not say no. Was too good of a deal to pass on for this TV. Heh heh. It is huge. This one is in our great room which has a lot of bright light and windows so it works well there.

    My plasma is a 42" Panasonic TC-P42U1 and is in our bedroom. Incredible picture, amazingly true colours, black blacks and amazing for sports and fast action. Love it.
