back to what i mean in my first sentence. Take me for example, I'm not anal about black levels or some super fancy shmancy audio system to enjoy this and that. However I am smart about it.
I buy dvds because I enjoy watching movies. Because I truly enjoy watching movies, I want to make the most out of my viewing pleasure, I use a projector for movie viewing. 10' of home cinema for this poor joe taint too shabby.
I have an HDTV lcd, my asian market alternative hd dvd player, pioneer av unit, 5.1 surround with subwoofer.
so now, back to the relative nature. You can scrutinize all the sets out there, and try and find the highest black level lcd around, but if you don't do much with it, you shouldn't bother yourself with it.
That's like a lot of people here and elsewhere who may attempt to say something like "see that 1 pixel out of 3million is off" or "those trumpets don't sound airy enough"...like they actually REALLY know what the heck they are talking about.
An easier and simpler analogy maybe...is the slob who gives advice in the gym. Weights 400lbs, has a belly roll that blends into the knee region...and swears by certain routines as he "coaches" other people
