Where did I say that ANY display irregularities, whether inherent in plasma, LED/LCD or OLED don't bother me? However, as I mentioned before, 'color/contrast shift when off angle' does NOT bother me for the reasons I stated in another post. Where my wife and I sit it is a non-issue.
The 2014 4K LEDs that I've been looking at do NOT suffer from "**** contrast". Have you seen any? Doesn't seem that way to me. Almost all the reviews I've read thus far seem to be praising the contrast.
Did you know that uniformity issues can also exist with plasma? I had them on my...get ready for it...Pioneer Kuro!!! Holy cow!!!! Did he say that? Yup. So don't think plasma is immune to this issue. Yes, it 'potentially' can be worse on LEDs. But it's a question of degree. Emissive devices such as plasma and CRT are still subject to uniformity issues. When clouding or uniformity issues are not serious and can only be seen rarely, then it's not a major issue IMO.
When I picked the F8500, I did so for one major reason, to minimize the inevitable ABL issue of plasma. That issue can vary depending on the manufacturer and that issue DOES bother me. So for ME, it was important that I address that if I was going to be happy with another plasma.
The bottom line is that we all make concessions and trade-offs regardless of the display technology we choose. Your hot button may be different than mine and preaching to me what you think is a 'deal-break' will not change my mind if to me it's a relative non-issue. To try to make one tech look perfect and the other seriously flawed is both silly and very misleading.
I think we've exhausted this discussion...it was probably exhausted pages ago. It would be really nice to get back to the subject of the thread.
You may have the last word as I'm sure you will.
