Maybe people should (a) stop putting words into my posts and (b) get a life.
I never said no one would ship anything for 18 month. Although, since you brought it up... It wouldn't actually be surprising to learn that it'll be close to 18 months before full on distribution of any of these TV is real.
And do I think they spend hundreds of millions teasing us? Well, no, but they spend a fair amount. Last year, LG showed off 70" and 65" LCDs at CES, none of which reached the United States. It's not even clear they actually shipping a new model larger than 60", although they did a handful of shipments of a very uninteresting 72" from very late 2010.
Samsung? They showed off a 75" which never shipped anywhere outside of perhaps Korea, although I've never seen a report indicating it actually went out to retail.
Reporting past history and behavior is not "trolling". Expressing an opinion that a product category that currently has zero products does not merit an entire sub-forum is, I think in the opinion of many reasonable people, an entirely defensible position. While yours may differ, that doesn't make mine "trolling". Sorry.
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.)
