I've read some great things about 10 lumen tech, so it's great that we only have less than a year to wait. (I hope)
No, 9g is not 5-lumen tech according to D-Nice. Sigh, it looks like the 10-lumen
tech that you guys talk about are plasma's answer to SED when it comes to
I'm so lost in all these new advancements. I mean, I don't understand the
whole economics of the situation (I guess plants have to be built) but I find
it pretty odd how we've seen some nifty concept TVs that haven't quite
made it to production yet. Sharp had an extreme-contrast LCD at the CES
show last year, but no word on it since. I remember a couple of years ago
I thought to myself "man, next year's TVs are going to be perfect". Now I'm
finding myself echoing that every year. What kills me is that Samsung seems
to really be at or near the top of the LCD realm! It's getting to the point where
you wonder what they'll come up with next. I'm still surprised they were the
first to have local-dimming mass produced (even though it didn't quite work out).
