The image quality of the Bravia 55HX925 is really the party piece of the TV. The HX925 is the first local-dimming LED TV that we’ve tested, and while it is not without a few faults, it is a great step towards LED TVs that can produce black levels that hold their own against high-end plasma TVs.
The Local-Dimming method of backlighting allows specific areas of the panel to go dimmer, lower in brightness. This, at least in theory, means that the screen has better chances of displaying truer blacks. This one feature of the TV is what defines much of its performance.
All blocks are visible, except for the darker blue shades
Before we get into the specifics of the TV’s performance, let us lay out some of the calibration settings we used to test the TV with.
Out-of-the-box settings of the TV are pretty decent. If you are not the kind who will tweak a lot then you will be happy with what you get immediately as you turn the TV on for the first time. Our first rounds of tests were under these conditions, and the TV performed very well in many of our tougher tests.
But if you intend to max out the TV’s true potential, then you should give the settings listed below a try:

Our performance conclusions have been derived from using these settings, and by selectively enabling and disabling Cinema Drive, and Motionflow-related settings.
We used a bunch of content to gauge the performance of the TV. We used The Last Samurai DVDs as well as The Dark Knight and Casino Royale Blu-rays and HD1080 60fps video samples for the TV. We also had a DTH service (Airtel Digital TV HD) with HD channels setup to see how well the TV would perform in day-to-day viewing conditions.

There's a lot common between the LG 55LA6910 and the Samsung...
If you're the kind that thinks that your spanking new LED-backlit LCD
