As you can imagine, THX says this is a very good sign.
THX Certification is a contentious subject for some, especially since the company refuses to reveal detailed standards for approval. Still, if the 2010 Editor's Choice awards from 'Sound + Vision' magazine are anything to judge by, THX Certification can make a big difference.
THX Certified displays took four out of the five commendations, including an Editor's Choice award for the Runco Q-750i DLP Projector, Epson Powerlite Pro Cinema 9700UB LCD Projector and the LG 47LE8500 LCD TV. Video Product of the year went to the THX Certified Panasonic TC-950VT25 3D Plasma TV.
"THX should be proud of its work with nearly all of our winners," says Sound + Vision Editor-in-Chief Mike Mettler. "It's clear that by going through the process of certification these companies care deeply about giving consumers the highest-quality home entertainment experience."
