Thanks for the info. It was the dimming that I was talking about.
You didn't give an info on haow the LCD looks in direct sunlight compared to the Pixel qi.

I thought I would add my thanks to the rest. This comparison lays to rest the few fears I had with my PQ order. I am ok on a 6 year old dell lap top lcd so I figured that the the Adam PQ had to be better than that. But this is still very reassuring.
Follower since Dec 2009. Submitted logo Tried and failed to order Dec 2010. Ordered Pixel Qi WiFi Feb. 12, 2011. Scheduled to ship Feb. 25 to March 10. Tracking # received March 28. I'm guessing it will get here the 6th of April. TNT estimates the 5th and UPS say the 1st. I hope that's not an April's fool.
This is probably--no, really--above the call of duty, but one thing that I noted in your comparison photographs is that by the true "side-by-side" images that you created--that is, the Adams are side by side--there is an optical artifact in that you can see that both screens fade to the left (LCD) and right (PQi), implying that the primary source of light is from the centre, or right (LCD) and left (PQi). I wondered if you wouldn't mind taking photographs of each screen under the same lighting conditions and without the other screen. These images could then be placed side by side for an "independent" view on the differences.
With that said, the rest of the images are kick-arse for comparison. The gains in comparison by repeating this would be minor, but if you're up for it I'm sure that the community would love to see it.
Again, though, awesome.
Adam: PixelQi LCD, Wifi + 3G (Ordered Feb-9, 2011; Delivered Mar-30, 2011)
ROM: Beast 2.1.3
Apps: Too many. I love Market and Amazon...
Screen Protector: Oh how I love thee...
Thanks so much for this information! I've been very interested in seeing this comparison done! Agree with poster above that it would be interesting to compare the two outdoors. Some early LCD owners have reported that LCD works unexpectedly well outside.
