Ah, I've got it now! It's your understanding of awesome that's err... unusual. My thesaurus says; wondrous, amazing, astonishing, inspiring and majestic.
I've still got a Sony tv too and I agree with you that the black level is superior to a LCD tv but black level isn't the whole story about picture quality and in comparison to my main LCD tv the Sony is old tech. If fact, judging by the thesaurus, I'd say the LCD picture quality is awesome.
