I don't doubt they would work, but the cheapo ones sold at HD and Lowes for $1 can typically carry between 50 and 100 lbs. I would think putting 8 of those up evenly spaced would work fine.

I'm entered.

Does getting the trivia questions right or wrong effect the chances of winning?

You're going to have to bend the wires. You just don't want to bend them so much that they break. Generally speaking as long as the jacket doesn't crimp, you should be OK.

Good news. I'm somewhat skeptical if this can be done properly via a firmware update but at worst you'll get what they originally promised. I guess this also means later model years will all support...

Neat idea, but before making this TV, I wish they would actually deliver their 65" UHD OLED TV for under say $5k. It's not like having a paper thin TV is a dream of mine. 2" thick and around 100 lbs...

It sounds like the price range will be between $400 (2x$200) and $900 (3x$300). When the PS3 first came out I think it was around $600 so I don't see how the prices are significantly less than...
