These poor sales guys are trained to always appear confident but unfortunately they often are told the wrong thing or come out with the incorrect understanding.
I agree, I no longer blame these guys. Look at how difficult it is for US to get things straight sometimes based on how the misinformation gets swirled around. Remember LG's ridiculous claim that passive 3D allows you to view 3D laying down? (Oye).
Regarding the guy at your BB/Mag: further in his defense I must state that the first few iterations I took in reading what the QD version of Sony's Triluminus offerings really seemed to me to be stating just that----a single QD emitter behind every LCD pixel. Threw me for a short time....some of their early diagrams I believe to be deceiving.
Well vinnie97, one of the kindest and most helpful and respected members here, was banned for silly reasons. And now vinnie_RIP is banned as well. The mark of an inexperienced moderator is to forget that their role is one of resource, not one of petulant authority and further that the members are doing the forum organization a favor by being here, not the other way around. They know darn well they screwed up here.
