I'm a psuedo-newbie to the realm of displays, but I'm here to gauge the differences/pros/cons of LG's 47LH90 versus the Samsung UN36B8000 display. I currently have a 5/6 year old Sony KDF-42 Grand WEGA that is dying due to the optical block failing (Thanks for making a nice big design flaw, Sony :P). At any rate, these two displays are the ones that I'm torn between.
What I've heard so far from some people (not Best Buy employees, fret not) is that the LG has supposed lower black levels than that of the Samsung due to local dimming, but from what I saw walking into BB, the Samsung looked better. See, there's my newbie talking, I'm probably wrong. Anyway, I really like the images on both displays and my main question is if the local dimming really makes that huge a difference in teh LG than in the Samsung. From what I've read on both product review pages on AVG, the Samsung seems to have snatched the higher rating and has more praise overall.
So, tell me, which do you think I should go with?
