I would be careful about depending on resale value. The TV tech world moves fast and in a couple of years there will be a minimal market for a 2 year old set. Two years ago I paid $6700 for a 70"...

Here's an option.

I would get something like a 60" Vizio M series 1080P TV for now. It has great reviews and is very inexpensive. Let that hold you over for a year or two while the dust...

I know where you are coming from. I'm surprised so many get turned off by a more realistic picture just because that is not traditional film. I remember going to the movies as a kid and being...

I believe it was David Katzimyer from CNET that had the Samsung curved set for about a week for review. From what I remember, he said the curvature neither added nor detracted from the PQ or viewing...

I don't mind watching the occasional passive 3D movie at the theater. But I tried to watch one active 3D film on my 70" Elite and couldn't take more than about a minute of it. Passive is the way to...

I don't think the cable companies really care now that they all have data caps. If you reach your cap from streaming 4K you will just have to pay for more data or start watch in 1080i instead.

I can certainly see the difference between 720 and 1080. I find the jump from HD to UHD though to be much smaller when observed from normal viewing distances. I have read the House of Cards 4K...

Sorry, I should have said based on the intervals between model releases, my best guess would be mid to late first quarter of 2015 for the R series. I would be very surprised if they released the R...

If the P series is being released mid October, the R series probably won't see the light of day until the middle of first quarter 2015.

I respectfully disagree with your viewpoint. The reason some of us are resistant to this type of stuff is the industry's tendency to focus on gimmicks instead of improved PQ. A few years ago when...

I hate to be a Negative Nancy. But I have real doubts it will come to light faster than HD. The move to HD was not market driven, it was a mandate by the government that broadcasters had to be off...

It's my understanding that LG developed a method where they can get an 80% successful panel rate where the competition is around 30% on their yields.

Samsung is coasting on their past reputation alone. But it's catching up to them fast and hopefully they will be gone in the next few years.

They are likely just hoping people will equate the curved screen with IMAX and buy on the assumption they will get the same experience.
