hi david,

totaly agree with you! i think the main problem in this case ist that in  
stores all tvs and displays are presented with maximum contrast. if any  
display wouldnt be presssented with maximum contrast it would look less  
brilliant and didnt get sold as much as others. most of the customers  
never edit the presets of the televison they bought!
