I believe one of the big problems with OLED at the moment is bad marketing. They should be showcased at Magnolia centers aimed at high end buyers. Right now you walk into any Best Buy and they are...

I believe my Elite has around 260. I don't think it was officially ever released by Sharp. Someone took the set apart and counted them. That being said, the Vizio R series coming out soon will...

This is not always the case. Back around 2008, Samsung introduced one of the early FALD sets(8500) but it was quickly discontinued. For years after that, the industry actually regressed in regards...

The only "correct" time to buy a high end 4K set is when plenty of 4K source material is available, the standards have been established, mass production has brought the price down, and there are no...

This is how I feel as well. But i also know we are in the minority. Many prefer the lower frame rates with full blurring effects. But we like what we like. If you don't like more realistic frame...

People who frequent this forum are not the target market for these curved TV's. They are targeting those who have very little TV tech knowledge but have money burning a...

lmao!

Looks like they stepped up their game by adding the ugliest TV stand I've ever seen. I was hoping the curved gimmick would fade away but it looks like they are going to try and get one more...

Honestly, I could afford it as well. But I didn't get to where I am by buying $25,000 TV's that could very well be obsolete in two years.:)

I would get much more satisfaction of getting a $2000...

The article states they expect it to be priced significantly more than $25,000. Perhaps a Saudi oil sheik will purchase one or two.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe the R series is also quantum dot tech. At least that is what a few here determined.

I can't speak for the upscaling on the Vizio because I have not seen it. But the upscaling on the Samsung 65" 9000 series is non existent. Our local...

The diminishing returns going from 4K to 8K would be absurd. You would literally have to put your eyeball on the screen to be able to tell the difference.

The laser isn't just the only potential advantage this projector might have. If the reviews are correct that the projector can attain 95% of the PQ of 4K, then that sets it apart from a true 4K...

This is what has always worried me. In the U.S., the move from SD to HD was not really market driven. It was a mandate from the govenment that stations had to be off analogue by a certain deadline....

Just for laughs I still can't wait for what the 120" R series will retail for. I know this set is more for bragging rights since it won't be mass production. But since the Samsung 105" costs...

To me at least, the Vizio 4K demo blows away the Samsung demo. Being an 70" Elite owner, I would not have thought that 72 zones would be sufficient for FALD. However, judging from the demo alone it...
