I just got back demoing this set, but since BB doesn't have a clue what they re doing, the set on the floor for the last three weeks has either a vertical sync or a de-interlacing problem, so I wasn't really able to make much of a judgement. What I did notice was this;
Looking for video processing delay I demoed a Mits, JVC and two Sammys (this years and last years 'floating design") sets and to my surprise the Mits had the shortest delay (if any). Last years Sammy 720 'R' series had the most (no surprise), followed by this years 'S', then the JVC 1080 (another big surprise) and finally the Mits 1080.
All sets had the same component feed and were side by side. I was watching video with numerous scene changes. I centered my vision in the center of the four sets and through peripheral vision watched each scene change to see which set showed the next scene first and which show the change last. It took a while to verify the results, but that was what I came up with.
I was very surprised that the JVC was slower (taking longer to display the scene change) than the Mits 1080.
Free, abundant OTA television separates this country from many others. ATSC1 has only been in force since 2009. The wireless industry has enough spectrum. Enough of 'planned obsolesce'.
