In a new test, Consumer Reports' testers carefully adjusted each LCD television to its optimum settings before judging picture quality. That allows for a much more accurate comparison than you get in a store showroom.
The test was for color accuracy - to see if the television correctly displays reds, greens, and blues.
Another test measured contrast ratio - how bright a picture the TV can deliver while still displaying as much gradation as possible in the dark areas.
"In general, LCDs don't perform as well as plasmas do as far as black levels," found one tester.
Another drawback can be viewing angle. Some LCDs wash out if not viewed head-on.
When all the testing was done, some LCDs proved far better than others.
Top ratings among 37-inch LCDs went to the Sharp Aquos model
LC-37-D9-OU for 22-hundred dollars.
It delivered excellent high-definition pictures and it comes with a well-designed remote.
