The "infinite contrast" and "4 times the resolution" is marketing nonsense. So is the contention that a curved screen will give you "clarity from every angle".

I really hope LG makes enough money off OLED to motivate better manufacturers like Panasonic, Sony and Samsung into developing their own models (or purchasing panels from LG). I also hope R&D is spent on developing the display tech rather than just more pixels or other physical gimmicks like screen geometry.
Yep, agree with all of that. a flat, 4K OLED, 60 inches or bigger please, at a reasonable price. And preferably not from LG. I keep hoping that Panasonic are going to buy some LG panels and develop their own electronics and processing, rather than faffing about with all that 4K LED crap they are selling at the moment....

Tell the dude to take a hike. Quantum Dot was developed by Bell Labs in the early 1990's, and just recently has been introduced in LCD/LED TV's. I think Quantum Dot actually does improve LCD/LED TV's, but expect to pay 4X for it. After all that, OLED (and of course plasma TV) still offers better PQ and viewing experience. Lots of articles on this around the web.

I have also been seeing some articles surfacing stating that Quantum Dot will be the next big thing in TV and that it is much cheaper than OLED & Plasma?

However they try to spin it, at the end of the day it's still LCD technology. With LCDs, reduced blacks, poor viewing angle and less contrast compared to OLED.

It seems like most of the industry is determined to keep LED as the default TV technology, and just keep tarting it up with gimmicks. At the end of the day though, you can't polish a turd.

That's only because LCD/LED has the biggest profit margins, and of course most CE Mfg'ers don't mind sacrificing superior PQ in order to achieve bigger margins. Pioneer & Panasonic both had the very best displays but ultimately they could not win in the "race to the bottom" game.

I just moved the ZT but have lost the screws to mount the TV back on to its pedestal. Can I buy replacement screws any where or does anyone know the thread size and length? Thanks.
