That calibration comment is even more laughable. How...

For me, i don't see anything out there that makes me want to replace my kuro. Especially now that plasmas are gone and OLED still needs some work and more manufacturers making them.

I understand. It must be annoying to keep getting kuros that don't work properly. You could get a decent amount of money for a brand new kuro. I would be interested if you end up going that route.

No. Waiting for the tech to improve more and other manufacturers to start making OLED. I would like RGB OLED too. Not a fan of the LCD look either.

I'm fine with my kuro right now.
