Decent. This was important for me, too. I still have several thousand DVDs I'm not replacing anytime soon. The limitations of the DVD technology are seen, but they don't look unwatchable. It's not...

I think LG realized that last year's 9700/9800 didn't give them enough numerical room to move up for the next year's bogus model, the EC9900. Now they at least have another three years before they...

I kindly disagree with your subjective comments. While current HD Blu-ray can look great, I wouldn't peg it at fabulous. It's far from perfect 1080p. There are many issues that present themselves as...

Price isn't an issue if we are discussing image quality. The LG OLED can be found regularly on sale in Canada between $2500-$3000. Let's consider the price of the said Pioneer plasma when it was an...

I wasn't aware of this. If it's under the manufacturer's warranty, the dealer should be helpful with assisting in resolving the issue. Do they not have a service department? I've never done any work...

Wow that's a crazy price. Good for the consumer. Anyone who was considering OLED and walked by that price without buying is probably kicking themselves now!
