This is the reason I love my AMOLED phone. The screen's black is black, even in a dark room it is pure black. Compared to the cheap LED TV I bought (26" LG, about 200) which has horribly uneven blacks, non of which are actually black; OLED is beautiful.

Once you go true black, you never go back.

Yeah this is my biggest problem with our LCD TV. We have a Panny plasma that is just gorgeous but you need to have it in a dark room because the glare filters on them are poor and their brightness isn't quite solar like LCD. People say the LCD blacks have caught up but not according to reviews and forums I'm reading nor our personal experience owning both types of TV.

Our LCD is a nice little TV but its uniformity is pretty uneven and blacks are average at best. It's shit for sports and anything with fast motion too, that 120hz crap is just interpolation that introduces color shifting and still exhibits some blurring, particularly if you're sitting on an angle. On the flipside I can tie the LCD to the stand and not have to worry about it falling over and killing the kid unlike the plasma which I had to anchor to the wall.

I think people are being too optmistic about OLED stuff though, it will still be a long time before we see affordable consumer models. I wouldn't be surprised if it was another 3-5 years even.

The glare filters got poor on LCDs in 2011, too, though. Why? Because idiots in stores prefer glossy screens, so LCDs lost one of their biggest advantages. General consensus is that 2011 LCDs were one huge step backwards while 2011 plasmas were a step forward, really widening the gap.

But even LCDs with poor filters are better than plasmas with great ones if you have a room where sun appears. I mean, hell, my VT25 was 2010s top plasma, and in most reviews top TVs, and on Saturday mornings from 9 till maybe 1 the sun streaming into my room, not even direct, crushes contrast and actually makes me play worse in games.
But considering the majority of my use is after 7pm I'm happy with the plasma.
