PlayBook LCD black levels -- look greyish!

[ Edited ]

Judging from this picture,

 

 

 

It looks like the PlayBook LCD will have a low contrast ratio and no where near deep blacks that everyone would love.

 

From the video, blacks look quite greyish. It might due to it being a beta unit. I'm not sure.

 

I sure hope the PlayBook delivers deep dark black levels. That would make the display POP :smileyhappy:

it might also be because its a video of the device through another lense and not a real life view of it. we'll know for sure when the device comes out :smileyhappy:

Re: PlayBook LCD black levels -- look greyish!

"Judging from this picture" may be a very poor way to judge.  Do you know that the original actually has deep blacks, or is it perhaps murky water and the ray's back looks dark greenish instead?

 

Might be better to find something that you know is actually black before jumping to any conclusions.

The video played on the Playbook can be found here:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s2a9ztWO4Pw (about 30 secs in) 

 

The colors in the video pretty much match what is shown in the Playbook.

Naw, doubt it. Look how washed out the bezel looks? It's just the image itself.

Re: PlayBook LCD black levels -- look greyish!

Watched a couple videos today that showed off some apps, and along with some pics I've seen floating around the collies look really good. I'd say that was just a bad image, and I think we've got a lot to look forward too when everyone finally gets their hands on one.
