There's an awful lot of navel gazing. You couldn't give me a Kuro. Or a Sharp Elite for that matter. Either would be useless in my house.

The problem I have with these discussions is that many of...

I find it amusing that I spent a lot of time explaining why LG's designs were going to be insufficiently rigid for just sitting around back in 2012 and was roundly mocked by many here.

Then we...

I think it's better for LG/Samsung than you do. Historically, the manufacturing ramp up of new technologies has only come when the supply chain has been commoditized. The early moves still have an...

Plasma is dead and buried.

Whether we wish it wasn't is pretty irrelevant at this point.

I hate to be on this side of the argument -- especially as I look over at my plasma -- but it's pretty...

So spot on.

I do look forward to the mainstreaming of better quality if/when OLED begins to displace LCD. But when I say that, I realize most people still won't care.

I don't.

Even as a videophile, I believe the differences are actually pretty subtle. I think they are especially subtle under bright lights.

Quality has been barely detectable to consumers...

Your understanding is based on myth. Let's move on.



Actually, we have a good idea. Most are built like crap, with shoddy components. Yet they last 5+ years with ease in most cases.

Just to clarify, it's price eliminates it from 99.99% of the market. The $8,000 and $10,000 models are already eliminated from 99% of the market. Quite a bit more in fact.
