TV size display and monitors are not the same thing.
Neither is LG's EL9500 using same RGBW tech.
PQ is not PQ when people talk about "vibrant" colors. VE Shootout don't look at "vibrant" colors. And they do so in darkness, which is what LCD advocates often cry foul on. And people with expensive Elite say cyan is not an issue. Which review you talking about when you say "most people buying such expensive sets will read reviews"? Obviously the platform is different for different people.
I have a 2 year old bet that a 31" OLED will be $5k this Christmas, when people back then think OLED is too expensive to be commercialised. This bet would be hard to conclude unless we intrapolate the price. I have a 3 months old bet against people that say OLED TV is vapourware this year. I think I'll skip a bet with a 6 year old 16 posts forumer... no offence... high counterparty risk since I am very willing to pay up if I lose
I have no need to analyse your English, beside English is not my first language, but based on what you did post here http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...&postcount=579
and here http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showp...&postcount=581
I'm sure you did not mean any of the OLED TV is going to place 1at or 2nd in the coming fall VE Shootout.
I only did mentioned people read reviews since you started to talk about J6P nothing to do with the subject, beside it's ONLY about VE Shootout so there can't be any misunderstanding, everything else is off subject.
I realy don't care about your other bets, but to question my integrity to pay small bet (i had on mind something like $10 US) based on my number of post is pretty insulting.
The sugested bet was ONLY to end this discussion, had nothing to do with gambling and since i'm about 6 years on this forum I sure would not run away if I lost. Anyway all the bets are off, I'm now questioning your integrity based on yours twisted replies.
Neither you or me can be 100% sure who is going to win the VE Shootout. I believe OLED will win based on everything I did read about OLED the last few years and based on mostly positive preview from people who actually did see the pre production OLED TVs unlike some people on this forum who never did see it but know better.
For example from this review http://asia.cnet.com/product/lg-55em...d-45834945.htm
In many ways, the 55EM9600 is the "spiritual successor" to the lengendary Pioneer Kuro. Until we have a chance to check out the Samsung OLED panel, this LG easily sets the new benchmark in terms TV picture quality and slim design. However, a drawback of this 55-incher is its estimated US$10,000 price, making it appealing only to discerning movie buffs and fashionistas with deep pockets.
And yes I know the slim design has nothing to do with the shootout same as the price doesn't.
My last reply on this subject to you.
