And let's hope that LG has improved the performance of its "LED Nano Technology" full-array with local-dimming backlight; The review of the HDTV top-of-the-line 55" LG model done by Home Theater Magazine pointed out its very poor performance (contrast ratio of only about 4.000:1 with local-dimming engaged) and the fact that they had to request two samples from LG because the first one appeared to be defective during testing, whereas the second sample provided only minor improvements in some areas.
Sooner than later i am planning to purchase an UHD set but i am sure going to wait until proper reviews are done by professionals not afraid to ruffle some feathers, and besides this whole HDMI 1.4 versus HDMI 2.0 version merits some consideration when spending over $5,000.00 for a TV set.
Case in point : recently one reviewer at the magazine pointed out the fact that in his many years of testing many/many LCD sets he cannot remember seeing a single one that could display a full white onscreen test pattern that did not show even the tinniest amount of magenta or green shading at one of the corners, left or right side of screen, at the center, surrounding the center area, etc.
