Okay, I was able to put them side by side... I better understand why the LG looks less "grainy" than the Samsung. Not sure a better way to describe it... It's just that solid colors look more solid on the LG than on the Samsung.
However... I like the colors on the samsung a bit better than the LG. The LG looks a bit over saturated. This should be easily corrected with the catalyst driver settings, or perhaps an adjustment to the ICM file.
Finally, my initial impressions were right in that the LG loses its saturation and some contrast when viewed at an angle while the Samsung retains what it has at a steeper viewing angle. This is most noticable at vertical angles (even angles as slight as 10-20 degrees.) However, the screen is still usable at steep angles.. just not as... pretty.
Hmmm, I felt exactly opposite! I am actually in th process of having the Samsung 15.4" screen replaced with the LG screen.
The unit I bought for myself has the Samsung screen, but we bought a few of the exact same machine type at work that came with the LG screen, so I brought my unit in and set it side by side for comparsion, everyone from our IT people to engineers all liked the LG screen without exception.
I find the Samsung screen to be artifically bright in the direct cone of vision, but the brightness outside of this cone drops off quite noticeably, such that I see this drop off if I move my head just a few inches off center, it gives me a headache after a while, where the LG screen is much more consistant and evenly lit across the screen even when I move my eye point a few inches from the center.
As for Samsung looking better from the side, who cares?
I don't look at my laptop screen from the side, and I sure as hell don't want other people to look at my laptop screen from the side!
