In spite of excellent reviews, a test by the DisplayMate Technologies shows that iPad Air display is not as good as that of Kindle Fire HDX 8.9

Apple Balla reports that the display comparison test of the iPad Air, Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 and Google's Nexus 10, conducted on Monday by DisplayMate Technologies, revealed some unexpected results. The company reported that the Kindle Fire 8.9 was the best display for a tablet they have tested so far.

The DisplayMate’s reported that the Kindle Fire HDX 8.9 had better performance than the iPad Air and Nexus 10 in a few categories: brightness, high ambient contrast, screen reflectance and absolute color accuracy and power efficiency.  The reviews for the iPad Air were not far from the Kindle Fire HDX, especially on color accuracy, image contrast and picture quality. 

The differences between the iPad Air and the Kindle Fire 8.9 were not significant and both devices had displays that are way ahead of any other device users probably have.

DisplayMate found that the Kindle Fire has a Low Temperature Poly Silicon LCD, usually used for smartphones that have the LCD.  The Air has IGZO Metal Oxide LCD, much better quality display than the a-Si amorphous Silicon LCDs used by most tablet displays today.

DisplayMate rated Nexus 10 fairly low because of is ageing technology, which will probably be updated with the new2013 Nexus 10 model.
