I'm excited too, don't get me wrong. I was just noting I don't think anyone can actually buy one yet.
Yeah, clearly the same demo loop from CES. And the same performance. And the same mirror-like front glass. I'd really like to see that low reflectivity glass used on these as soon as possible. We are entering the final frontier of contrast and having the room showing up in the TV is really getting in the way.
Anyway, if the performance of the shipping TVs is no better than that demo unit in the video you linked above, I really believe this is going to be a tough sell at $8000 or anywhere near it. There are serious issues with what goes on there that appear the same as they did in January. I hope the finished goods are better.
Regardless, this is exciting and the first step in a long journey. I'm sure things will get better into 2013 and beyond.
There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)
