Since no one really responded to this, having seen the CrystalLED in person during the show, the motion was nothing short of amazing. No lag, no blurring, no trailing colors, nothing. Perfect, smooth, just amazing as you really have never seen a display that looks like this in motion before. That was probably the most impressive thing about it, though I've also been focusing on motion resolution the past couple months so I'm just really sensitive to it at the moment.
I thought the Sony was the best display at the show, ahead of the OLED displays, and the 8K display, for a few reasons:
- Off-axis it was perfect. The LG OLED whites had a green tint off axis, and I didn't check well enough on the Samsung to be certain.
- Sony used much better, real world demo material. Samsung had a lot of CGI stuff that doesn't give you any indication how it might handle a skin tone, or a normal movie. LG had half of their sets running a horrid 3D demo loop (everything comes WAY out of the screen, giving me a headache instantly) and so it was harder to get a good feel for it. Seeing real material was very good.
- Motion was just so good. Nothing against the OLED displays, as they looked great, but just didn't have the same "wow" factor as the OLED.
- The Sharp 8K had incredible resolution, but otherwise the panel was just a bit ordinary in terms of off-axis, blacks, motion, and contrast ratio.
I have no idea if Sony will release a model of this in the future at any point, and only they might if anyone does. No one was telling me that. However, out of everything I saw at CES, it's what I wanted to take home with me the most. I can just hope at CEDIA this fall we can get some more news on it, as that would be great.
