Actually, yeah. The blacks looked a lot deeper on the Samsung than they did on the Sharp, and the image was a lot cleaner. Both on 1080p from my DirecTV receiver. Not to mention that the Samsung was more aesthetically pleasing than the Sharp was.
Retribution.

You know, I was looking at iMacs today (to gloat to myself about how much better my PC is, of course ) when I noticed something. The similarly-priced iMac was equal to or inferior to my PC, except for one field: screen resolution. Where my $1700 Coraima boasts 1920x1080, the $1699 Apple had a significantly higher resolution at 2440x1600.

I've always liked Apple displays, even if I've been lukewarm on the computers themselves. The first time I looked at one of their 2440x1600 displays, I was flabbergasted by the size, and the glossy glass screens on their computers do quite a bit for the color IMO (the monitor I have now is an HP Brightview - the closest PC substitute, I suppose). Furthermore, the retina display on the iPhone four was, in my opinion, fantastic - but perhaps I'm just not paying enough attention.

My experiences with Apple displays thus far lead me to believe that, if Apple does become involved in making televisions, the results should be no less than amazing.

Sharps Quattron lol.

For the test, we covered up the manufacturer's name, and put the two sets side-by-side, then asked a number of my colleagues to judge the two sets.

Of the 50 people who completed the questionnaire, 47 said they saw a clear difference between the two sets. Unfortunately for Sharp, nearly 80 percent of those who saw a difference said they preferred the Samsung set. Typically, they said they thought the images looked sharper and more realistic on the Samsung than on the Sharp set, though a handful of users had the opposite opinion.
