LED's have many problems. Many of them are discussed in this document by TI. From what I am seeing the native contrast of LED DLP is much lower than a lamp based source. I suspect this is from the entendue mismatch for the DLP chip and the LED light source.

That is a very interesting read. Doesn't sound like laser illumination is going to be easy to utilize either.

Especially not for dlp, though it seems to have more possible advantages for lcos.

Should I be worried about it launching in the land of "OZ"?

Pricing of 4K-UHD TVs are all over the place at the moment. Here is a 50" Seiki UHD TV for $ 1299 in the US; http://www.shopnbc.com/Seiki_50_Slim_LED_4K_Ultra_HD_120Hz_HDTV_w_HDMI_Cable_Two_Year_Extended_Warranty/437-325.aspx?storeid=1#videofrompg

Yeah, that one threw many of us for a loop. At least from where I sit it seems like the 4K pricing is going to drop faster than most of us seemed to have expected. Not that it does any good unless the content races along with it.

In any case I look forward to your impressions! Of the titles that come with the server do you have any of these on Blu-Ray? That certainly would provide an interesting comparison.

I see Gefen EDID spoofer in action for that.....

I saw the Sony 84" yesterday at the local Sony Store. Holy cow! Unbelievable IQ. Wish it wasn't $25,000 but give it a few years I guess...

Sony notes that the 4K FMP-X1 media player owners will have to wait until fall for paid 4K movie downloads --

Half the price of the RedRay with 4k downloading coming this fall. You have to figure that Sony will have a new consumer 4k projector ready by this fall as well, right?

Hmmmm......Your post is listed as 555 of 554. I swear I saw Spock with a beard somewhere.

In any case, it's fairly obvious that we're in the "deadline-doom" stop-gap phase of things.

I just saw the UltraHD Sony set at Best Buy and wow was it pretty to look at. It shows how messed up this industry is that they have to list it as 4K UltraHD with an asterisk saying 3840 x 2160. Going to be so confusing for the lay person, I understand the need to make it 16:9

Electronic companies are geniuses. They need to produce more profits then bam 4K. Looks like they might be pleasing their stock holders in the next few upcoming quarterly earnings report.

Well of course they need to produce more profit, and of course they need to please investor's, that's why we invest. Financial growth is required, otherwise you close your doors. One of the basics of capitalism.
