I was able to hit a BB in New Jersey earlier this week (rt 17, Garden State Plaza) and saw that they had the Samsung hooked up to different display other than the Samsungs I have been seeing them on at CCs. much smaller, though I can't remember what exactly it was (maybe a Westinghouse LCD?). They were also playing a demo disc that I hadn't seen before (the watchmaker, Chicken Little, POTC clips, etc). Everything in general looked much better than the actual features I'd seen on the Samsungs the first week, and in the case of POTC, the image was very clear, and crisp, though not exceptionally dimensional. the split screen demos were a joke (as much if not more so than the ones on the HD DVD demo disc) and I did see banding and macroblocking at times - though not on the better clips (except for some color banding on Chicken Little...I think). now here is were it gets interesting for me. Yesterday I got a chance to see that same demo disc on one of the huge Samsung DLPs that I had earlier caught TFE and Flying Daggers on- and guess what- The disc and assorted clips looked like absolute shit. The POTC clip in particlular looked very nasty with tons of digital grain (mosiquito noise) and a very flat over contrasted appearence. Now, this doesn't mitigate what were clearly problems to me with both of the feature software I saw (TFE, HOFD)- in particular the macroblocking that was not an added feature of the display (as you can see when you step or slo mo thru the offending passage on the disc)- however it does tell me that Bd is being even more poorly served by its association/1st impressions forged with Samsung in some form or fashion for the next few months.
