Well they certainly aren't inky black on my screen, closer to a 85-90% Black, nowhere near the solid black of the screens bezel which does a good job of showing up this deficiency. Was i expecting to much? I was under the impression that the blacks were always supposed really solid 'inky' as stated on HDTVTest but mine just doesn't look that black I feel slightly disapointed to be honest. My settings contrast/brightness are both set around 30% on cinema mode, and on a warm setting. What do other owners think?
