Looks like Panasonic stuck to their guns when they decided to not participate this year.

Agree, that's a pity. Maybe they are holding off to enter the AX900 in the 2015 Shootout.

I am excited they are testing larger sets as that is what I'm in the market for and have found other review sites not reviewing the larger model tvs.

I was hoping the 79" 900b would be in the shootout as this set along with the sammy 78"uh9000 are my top contenders (wish the Vizio P or R series came in the same size).

Wonder why Sony decided not to build a 79" 950b model as the 85" price premium is huge. Would love me some large FALD tv.

At least they've decided to see if the various sizes of TVs in a given model offer consistent performance ahead of the shootout. That's a good first step. I'm not sure what criteria they're going to use to pick a size though.

Value Electronics put this on their website more than 2 weeks ago:


'Likely to be added (final testing next week):
  • Vizio M652i-B2 65" Direct Lit LCD/LED w/local dimming
  • Sharp LC-70UQ17U 70" Edge Lit LCD/LED'
Has there been any news since then? Do we know if either the Vizio M65 or the Sharp 70UQ (or bot) are 'in' yet???

Robert told me we're looking at Sunday or Monday for a final list, at which point I'll publish a new article.

Well Mark, Monday's pretty much come and gone - did you get the final list from Robert yet?

Nope and I'm pretty much done asking—I trust that when whatever needs to be figured out gets figured out I'll get a heads-up. When it happens, I'll act on it immediately.

I was afraid you'd say something like that :-( but thanks for the reply in any case.
