I am considering Sharp LC-52D82U or LC52D92U. Anyone know which one is better?

You might want to look at the new LG 52" 1080p lcds. They have a native contrast (a.k.a. real, not dynamic) of 10k. Compared to the 2-2.5k actual contrast of the Sharps. They look even better than my plasma, imo.

Just a bit cheaper also (depending on the model of sharp you were looking at.)

Do you know the model # for LG 52"? I believe Sharp claims the dynamic contrast of 15,000. What does it traslate to native contrast?

I was reading an article on the web where they had tested the knew samsung M8 1080p, they where so impressed with the blacks that they even went on to say it was as good as if not better then the panasonic PDP they where comparing it to, or had just tested.
will try to find the article and post it on here.
contrast ratio of 15,000-1

The LG 52 that's around is the 52LB5D. http://ca.lge.com/en/prodmodeldetail.do?actType=search&page=1&modelCategoryId=0101&categoryId=0101&parentId=01&modelCodeDisplay=52LB5D&enlarge=%2Fen%2Fdown%2Fproduct%2F0101%2F52LB9D%2F5 2LB9D_L.jpg&model=Select+a+model

The newest model sharps have a 3k set contrast. Listed on their site as 'Native Contrast' http://www.sharpusa.com/products/ModelDetailedSpecs/0,1161,1812-,00.html

The big Sharps surprised me, even with in-store settings at Circuit City.

And BTW, there is no industry standard for how to measure contrast ratio. The numbers that manufacturers publish can basically be ignored except to compare within that one brand. Go look and trust your eyes after you do some basic tweaking (at least get a TV you are interested in off of the factory blowtorch settings they always have).
