I don't find your statements credible at all.
where you at CES?
where you in the room???
did you see the display?
did you see what sony had out on display other than a buncha 12' and 16" OLEDs, and one single 22" OLED?
you people crack me up.....some anonymous guy online calling most of us that actually saw the demo "not credible"
Yes, the sony rep, which I didn't know at the time was a sony rep until we were chatting afterwards, did say "uh oh"
...... we talked afterwards and he also mentioned several technologies down the pipe, etc, but nevertheless he was just as impressed as the rest of us.
I don't give two sh!ts if it was Sony, Pioneer, Panasonic, or Honduran Dogsh!t central Inc. who made that display and that demo, but it was very impressive nonetheless........so before you continue on your idiotic tirades about credibility, you should build some yourself.
christ, people like you are turning this place into complete waste...this place is becoming worst than the subwoofer forum!

So, in his bizarre universe, you having seen a Pio plasma makes you "uncredible" but him not having seen either the Pio Plasma, or the technology that he is obsessed with, makes him the King of Crediability.
no worries Greenland....I can tell the type from a mile away.
the demo consisted of them showing a 7 min or so demo with only the new panel, with the lights nearly completely off at first and gradually changing them into brighter settings. Then the pio rep talked a bit, and then they demo'd certain scenes of said video on both sets to show the differences....THIS is were you really get a great idea.
as good as the current 6070 is (or the elite's or panny's 600U and pro series or Fujitisu's, NEC's, etc), once you see side by side what both of these units were doing, it becomes fairly obvious.
Speaking of the Sony rep, pretty cool young guy, and we chatted also about the SXRD being the same demo (thin 55" rptv, etc) from last year, and he basically said that they had their hands in several areas of "higher priority" such as continuing advancement in OLED, etc.
I expect Panny to come up with something close (if not better) than the Pio new technology soon, and this means one and one thing only: Better products at better prices for us consumers!
