HDTV shootout 2009
Every year Value Electronics invites customers into their showroom in Scarsdale, NY to test out the latest displays from the major brands. This year they tested out LCD and plasma displays from Panasonic, Samsung, Pioneer, LG, Sony, and Toshiba.
The process includes several days of calibrating each display to meet ISF specifications for black level, color accuracy, and gray scale tracking. Each display is mounted to offer side-by-side comparisons and fed the same high-def source from the top-of-the-line Blu-ray Disc player.
It’s a little difficult to see exactly what they’re talking about though the YouTube videos, but there is some good information you can use to evaluate TVs yourself. You can watch the event here.
So who is the winner of the shootout? You can download the customer evaluation results here.
