Doing some editing work on b&w pics, I noticed that the picture displayed by LR (4.1) is a lot brighter than in Photoshop (CS6) or in Topaz' b&w Effects.
Haven't tried to print yet, but I was wondering if I missed something...

Great. Now you might find that happens again in future, and there are 2 reasons it could happen.
1. Check Preferences dialog > Presets tab and check that 'apply auto tone' isn't checked.
2. With one of the problem photos selected, go to Develop module > Develop menu > Set Default Settings and press the Restore Adobe Defaults in case you changed them accidentally.
