Another interesting thing at this year's shootout was that during the technical tests, both OLEDs were crushing whites, the Sony XD9 LCD actually showed more detail in this test. During a scene from what I think is a cable (or online) TV show, a period detective affair, there was a window behind one of the characters with venetian blinds. The Sony XD9 actually did a better job of resolving detail in that window than the OLEDs.

My main criteria for a TV are video processing, onboard sound quality and color. And if you can give me more picture detail, I'll take it. Same with audio.
