Vizio has a 70"4k that was to be released in 2013 but then announced for first quarter of 2014. I hope it is FALD.

Does anyone know, historically, after CES announcements do current gen TVs see a drop in price?

I'm looking to purchase a high-tier TV maybe from SONY or Samsung, and wondering if its worth waiting until early next year for CES to pass.

Thanks

From what I remember you can usually get a discount right around Superbowl time. I believe the newer tvs usually hit around March. If I remember correctly there were some in store discount at best buy when they were making room for the newer models. Maybe some else can chime in on this as I'm not 100% sure.

Appreciate that, so far I'm just keeping track of prices on Amazon and I saw someone on here post a price tracker (camelcamelcamel.com) for Amazon, so I know the TVs still have some room to fall, but hoping they set new lows so I can get em a little cheaper lol

Not to mention I'm second guessing every choice I make, cause I want the best PQ ...so far my top choice is the Samsung F8000

At this point I'm waiting for 2 things.
1) To see if my Samsung 46D8000 is fixable and how much it will cost.
2) CES 2014

Love my D8000 best tv I've ever had. I just don't want buyers remorse 3 months down the line.

There will be a few Sharps in 2014 with blue LED with red and green phosphors ( which reminds me of the Sony Quantum Dot TVs - blue LED with red and green Quantum Dots)

I know some already mentioned the Samsung in another thread already




I wonder if their 2014 E Series has larger screens than those mentioned?

New here, looking at the Samsung UN559000. Figured I'd wait until CES 2014 to see what's announced and if I should wait for it to come out or just go a head and purchase the current model. Also hoping they will finally mention what the upgrade cost of the One Connect box will be for the HDMI v2. Right now local stores have it for $2,999 and that's with a $500 discount; I'm curious as of to how long this discount will last. Would hate to wait and find out the newer tv will be at a higher price point and miss out on the discount for the current version.

This is what I've been waiting for. Due to some unfortunate financial problems, I was unable to get the Samsung F8000 this year as planned. So now I'm waiting to see what Samsung brings with the new G series TVs. It's nice to see Vizio and Sharp concentrating on PQ instead of "smart" features and quad core CPUs. Hopefully Samsung will put more effort into PQ this year also.

My CES Samsung prediction: Samsung will show the usual bunch of extravagant TVs that no one can afford. They will launch more OLEDs (flat and curved) with more sizes. UHD will be the focus for their main line.

G8500 (or G9000): UHD, full array local dimming 140 zones, 55"-70".

G8000: UHD, full array local dimming 90 zones, reasonable price, 55"-70".

G7000: UHD, edge lit with micro dimming ultimate, 46"-60".

G6000: 1080p, edge lit with micro dimming pro, 40"-65".

I'm sure UHD and OLED will be the focus this year for everyone. With OLEDs already dropping to around $7000, I wouldn't be surprised to see flat 55" 1080p OLEDs at an affordable price by Q3 next year. I'm also sure that UHD will trickle down to the upper mid range models next year. UHD prices have already fallen to a somewhat reasonable price (at least for Sony). I think UHD will become more of a standard next year.

Either way I can't wait.

You can't go wrong with waiting til after CES. In fact, I'd highly suggest waiting due to:

1. As the 2014 models start to come out in stores, the 2013's will go on clearance. If you don't like the 2014 models, you will be able to get a 2013model brand new, for a heavily reduced price.

2. This year is the first major year of consumer UHD TV's. Next years UHDs should have all of the problems of this years models worked out. Its more than reasonable to expect a better upscale engine, reduced input lag, HDMI 2.0 built in and possible support for the new color gamut.

eclipsegt,thanks. That's kind of what I was thinking although I can't imagine the current version coming down much more in price as they got slashed about a month ago... but ya never know I guess. I'd mainly like to wait to get a new version with HDMI V2 instead of buying the current model and also having to purchase an updated One Connect box... seems silly to have to pay the fee having only owned the TV for a short period of time. My problem is I'm wanting a new TV bad :-) Anyone know the typical wait time from when it's announced to when it actually hits the stores? If it's 3 months or so I could probably wait but if it's 6 months then I wouldn't bother waiting. Thanks for any tips/advice!

If CES looks anything like that I might have to start rethinking my projector plans...

I'm coming from a Toshiba HD 57" rear projection so ANYTHING I get will be a massive improvement :-) I have seen the UN559000 at the local BestBuy and just stood there for a good 10 minutes in awe of the picture. Given it is the demo footage Samsung supplied to run on the TV but I imagine even the 1080 content will look a hundred times better than what I'm seeing with my current TV. I'll just have to wait until the announcements and see what they are coming out with, if they are going to be a grand more than the current model then I won't bother waiting. Thanks for all the advice!

lol rear projection. I have a Mitsubishi rear projection in my living room so i know how you feel. I was about to replace it until my bedroom D8000 started acting up. I have to get that worked out first.

Ya, ya, I know. But honestly the thing just won't die, it's still running great, about 11ish years old and never had a single problem with it. The smart TV's is what really started getting my attention (I'm a somewhat gadget/tech geek) and then the prices got cut on the UHD (I was looking at the 8000 series prior) so now it's all I can think about. CES can't get here fast enough.

Either way I can't wait.




I can't wait either, always look forward to it every year, too bad I can't be there live. Just a note , I read somewhere that Samsung is skipping the G series to H series for 2014. Don't know exactly why though, could be just a rumour. It would be awesome if they had their high end full array but highly doubtful.

Media room- LG OLED EG9600 4k, Pioneer Elite VSX-90, PS4, Klipsch Gallery G28's, Klipsch Sub 12, Klipsch RS-52 II, Optik HD cable

Living room- Panasonic ST60, onkyo RC-360,HTPC, Klipsch Reference R-62II, Rc52II

Gaming room -Panasonic GT50 THX, PS3, Wii

Thanks for the info. Its interesting that they are skipping G. The leaked info for the H7000 sounds great. I can't wait to see what the H8000 brings (hopefully UHD at a decent price and back lit LED). I wonder if Samsung isn't skipping G, maybe they will sell 2 lines of TVs. The G's would be 1080p while the H's are 4K. SO you could have a G8000 and an H8000 that would be identical except for the resolution. Of course that could get confusing.

It would be interesting to find out why they are no longer going alphabetical.

The 2014 sets are the H series. My guess is that it was avoid confusion with LG sets but who knows.

Interesting OS design. I like the simplicity and the overall clean look. However, the most interesting thing in that Engadget link was the tv design. The lack of bezel is nothing new, but what interest me was what looks like a sound bar built into the tv stand. I really hope this tv is real. Having the speakers in the stand would greatly improve the sound quality and the extra depth of the stand means LG can put in higher quality speakers. It's almost like a built in sound bar.

Hard to tell but if that is the case it would be nice

Sound stand is a pretty nice idea. Looks a lot better than big bar in front of your tv.
