The idea here is that local dimming on a black screen shouldn't be taken as absolute reference for black levels in Sony's case. CNet have measured black levels on a black screen with local dimming on and found out that the black levels are far superior to any plasma. Still, that never occurs with normal content and in this case CNet stated that the overall black levels for the Sony model are on par with Panasonic's ST50 plasma, which is indeed good news. However, the LED LCD still has clouding problems and trailing artifacts.
