I disagree. Its apparent that the 81 series is a higher line than any currently out, but its also apparent that it is still a consumer line. I would put the 46" under 5k MSRP, for larger sizes I cant say since they are not in the commodity class yet.
Last year, they announced the 96 series, but what happened is he 95 series came out in its place, and was only announced I beleive in April or May the they are also released a few weeks early in June. When the ones come out in March I would expect to see some more news on the 81s. I wouldnt expect prices until May.
These companies do not like to give too much information out on new lines much before they come out. As it can make people decide to wait it out rather than purchasing a new TV now.
On a side note, these sets should be called 'Local Dimming sets" Not "LED sets", the fact that they use LEDs does not accurately describe why they are better than other previous technologies, as other LED backlit displays without local dimming will see none of the advantages that this display will have.
Does anyone have information on advantages of Triluminous LED, and the possibility of Locally Dimmed Triluminous LED arrays?
