Keep in mind that the big push to 4K was not the preferred direction manufacturers were originally looking to take. It was OLED. But there were so many costly manufacturing barriers that just about...

I doubt this. The only way to get a 120" TV in a reasonable price range is through mass production. This will be a "build on demand" set. As in you contact Vizio, and they build one and make...

The strange and limited screen size selection is what makes me think it's not vaporware. Or at least not intentional vaporware. If this was all fake hype then they would have promised other sizes...

I read somewhere that Vizio mistakenly put up a price on their website of $3999 before taking it down hours later. Apparently that is their intended MSRP but someone screwed up and put it up too...

Perhaps. But then you are in a situation of comparing the lowest priced non HDR 1080P OLED's to the highest priced cutting edge FALD 4K LCD's.

That's still a 400%-500% margin increase above the same sized LCD's. Another thing that is hurting them IMO is the marketing approach they take to sell them. They really shine in a darker room...

I disagree with this as well. You don't get any brighter room environment than on the Best Buy showroom floor. The deep inky blacks of the Vizio P demo absolutely blew away the edge lit 4K Samsung...

I disagree. While it is true that the PQ of OLED is better than LCD, the economics will forever be a barrier for it becoming mainstream. Unless there are some industry changing discoveries that...

Unless you are using the TV as a monitor, anything below 50" will negate any benefit for having 4K. So I see no reason why 1080P will be going anywhere. I suppose it's possible at some point that...

If even the dark viewing room environment of a Magnolia center can't bring out the impact of HDR, then it might be a bust. I would imagine at least 95% of all sales rely on people walking into your...

I should have been more clear. It didn't even look like it was 1080P. It looked a lot more like it was just upscaled 480P. Hence why I asked the the sales associate.

They have an Avatar blu ray demo'd on the local Best Buy Samsung HU9000. Honestly even getting right next to the screen I could not tell it was any better than 1080P. I had to confirm with the...

Even though it took 15 years for HD to roll out, it would likely have taken much longer if not for the government mandate that the networks had to be off analogue by a certain date. That pushed...

The only reason that TV was priced at 40,000 was because it was one of the first large 4K sets. I personally wouldn't even pay $5,000 for one now.

I remember reading one of the first 70" HD sets...

It's quite comical that the listed website is speculating a $9999 price tag for the 120". The M series 80" is $4000 but it is a mass produced item. The 120" R series will not be. More than one...

I'm actually kind of surprised by these responses. Our local Best Buy had an Avatar Blu Ray disk playing on the Samsung curved 8550 65" for a few weeks. I had to ask to make sure it wasn't just a...

lmao @ spending more than $5000 on anything other than FALD. Samsung can keep their edge lit junk. I've seen it their 4K sets in person and was highly unimpressed.

Considering Samsung's 110" is over twice that price, 50K would be an amazing accomplishment on Vizio's part.

I would love to be proved wrong, but I think the price might actually be above $70,000. Perhaps MUCH higher than 70K. Vizio does a great job on giving us bang for you buck. However, I just see no...
