Plus most displays have a mode that are specifically for 'floor showing', basically oversaturating/overbrightness. Makes it easy for stores to set it up that way. Ruins the display to the point that the manuals specifically tell you 'don't use this or it'll break early'.

To be fair to shopfloor owners, unless you over-saturate everything, the TV's picture is going to look like shit against the ridiculous amount of lighting going on in the store.

If your TV at home is in direct sunlight, it's going to look like shit too.

That said, Best Buy is indeed notorious for deliberately fudging settings so that the expensive TVs with the highest markup look the best. Comparing on image quality at Best Buy is a fool's errand.
