From the specs:

VESA 400X200

It's certainly wall mountable and it certainly doesn't make sense to affix anything to the...

The Chinese are mostly forced to watch in 3D at the cinema. When a movie has a 3D option, in China nearly every screen offers only the 3D version. In the U.S., consumers have more choice.

It, of course, is...

It's funny, I can -- without much work -- imagine at least one other reason to mention a Sony LCD in this thread: It's the best 75-inch or so TV you can buy right now and it costs about as much as...

Sorry, but *again* this is clearly not going to happen.

There will not be two models, flat and curved, where only one has 3-D and yet they cost exactly the same thing.

It feels like an extraordinary bargain in that comparison.

But I'll take it further. LG's 77-inch price is stupid right now. At $10,000 it would be more approximately reasonable compared to their...

I think the point should be clear: Nothing goes from "first device" to much of anything commercial is <15 years. It doesn't go from first device to a big TV in <30 years....

1988 was the first LCD TV, it was 14 inches. It was awful but it was a TV. Pretty sure the first active-matrix laptop was also 1988 with the Macintosh Portable, which didn't even have a backlight and...

I can accept there. LCD has a less clear milestone in my mind than some of the others, but the 1970-2 timeframe is right. The 1970 date would create an even bigger gap to the 40+ inch mark than the...

Someone in LG product marketing decided to make the B6 and the C6 functionally equivalent, which is why the prices for them are now the same.
