More power to them. But I won't get excited until it's real. Fortunately I don't hold a grudge but I own a Vizio set now that is the worst flat-panel I have ever owned and the only one I regret purchasing. It's a 2012 model. Here's to hoping both the quality and prices become reality...

 

Well the very worst thing that could happen to quality in any industry is for the competition to dry up.

I'm not saying Vizio is going to completely succeed, I'm saying it's their plan.

That said, I don't see why Toshiba, Panasonic, Sharp or Sony is making TVs (none make any money doing it), and expect all to be gone from TV making by decade's end at the latest. Of course, I expect Hisense, TCL and others to take their place.

There's a saying about "everything in moderation". If only it was applied to well, you know...

I think Im gonna add the Aquos Q 70" to my interested list. Im not convinced Im getting into 4K this year, or that its a smart move at this point. 70" would be a nice upgrade and the price is gonna be pretty good IMO.

Q+ can keep moving on as far as Im concerned.

I wonder if Sharp fixed their motion processing for this year.

I really wanted to buy a cheap 70" I saw last week but knew it would still have the issue with not being able to disable motion smoothing on any AV mode outside of "Game" mode on a 1080p/60fps source. :/ (Turning "Film" and "Motion Enhancement" off does nothing for this problem and has been a bug in the Sharp TV firmware across all their models for a couple of years now.)

Samsung UN65KS800, Denon AVR-X2300W, Polk CS20 Center, Polk Monitor 75T Fronts, Polk TSI300 Rears, Power Sound Audio S1500 Subwoofer.

If you've got a 720p/60fps or 1080p/60fps source being input (read: video game console or HTPC), motion interpolation cannot be completely turned off unless you change the AV mode to "Game". Was like that on all the Sharps in 2012 and 2013.

If you're watching BluRays or DVDs, generally those are fed into the Sharp at 24fps and don't exhibit this behavior. Also, you won't have an issue with 1080i sources, but 720p OTA HDTV and game consoles will experience this issue on Sharp TVs. (Don't know about the 2014 models, though.)

Also, Sharp needs to work on their input lag for "Game" mode as well. Almost 60ms of delay is not really acceptable... The old 2011 and older models were much faster.

Was in Best Buy yesterday evening and they had just finished setting up the 70" Sharp 4K.

It was not as impressive as the Sony and Samsung 4K panels on display, but they had just finished getting it up and running, so I'll stop by next time I am in the area to see if they have improved the PQ...

p.s. $5000 for the 70" 4K at BB...

Was that the LC-70UD1U? Looked on BB website and that's the only 4k model listed. If so, that's last year's model, not the 2014 one.

Didn't realize Sharp had a 70" 4K model last year. They said that they had just gotten it in and that that it was new, so I just assumed it was the newly-announced Sharp model. They said it cost $5K and I see that Best Buy online has the LC-70UD1U for $5K, so that is probably what it was: http://www.bestbuy.com/site/searchpage.jsp?_dyncharset=ISO-8859-1&_dynSessConf=-2645453308652967207&id=pcat17071&type=page&st=LC-70UD1U&sc=Global&cp=1&nrp=15&sp=&qp=&list=n&iht=y&fs=saas&usc=All+Categories&keys=keys&ks=960&saas=saas

The online add indicates that the LC-70UD1U is only at Magnolia, so maybe they are moving the 2013 model from Magnolia to Best Buy to make room for the 2014 models in Magnolia.

Since the 'Sharp AQUOS 4K Ultra HD Series - UD Line' was announced with an MSRP of $6000 for the 70" panel, that is probably not what I saw...

No worries. I was just surprised that they would have put out the 2014 model so quickly. Now it makes sense. Hey who knows, maybe this year's model will blow us away (yeah I know, one can dream...)
