Not anymore mate. I'm not talking about TFT I'm talking about the all new LED screens that came about this year or at least in Japan but I'm sure Europe has them too. Prime example is this shot taken from my TV. Now that black is BLACK :nod:
Golden Axe the Duel
The blacks are so good on this shot that you can't see where the screen ends and the TVs frame starts.
Even normal SD stuff looks good.
This is probably how Tatsujin's TV handles the blacks as well. Honestly, the new gen of LED screens are far more advanced than the old ones and as a result blow away plasmas up to 50" at least. Biggest benefits though are cleaner colour tones, less heat, use less power, cleaner refresh rate (Especially the newest Sony's or so they say) and a wider viewing angle although still not as good as the classic CRT.
