Quote from announcement :
"The Vizio will not be voted on as it did not perform well enough to be included in the final group".
I wish they were more specific : exactly in which performance parameters the Vizio did so poorly to not be included in the group, was it poor FALD implementation + noticeable "blooming", unacceptable amount of "bands", "dirty screen effect", backlight bleeding, video processing, unit failure during testing, what exactly precluded its inclusion ?
On the other hand, why include models costing upwards of $25,000.00 when only a tiny minority of the population can afford that ? Why not request from manufacturers they ship more affordable top-of-the-line units such as the Sony 950 UHDTV for the shootout ?
Kind of disappointed here, after all this hoopla and waiting...
