I wouldn't push your luck on that one, as the 2% discount was only if you paid cash.

It probably would if said flower was blown up to the size of my TV and viewed in a room where my eyes had adjusted to the dark. :)

Reflected sunlight is pretty darn bright.

Probably just 48fps, though?

Personally, I've always wondered if the soap opera effect in those films isn't just the lack of film grain.

HFR (120fps+) could be great for video and sports but...

For people who want a stripped down TV there's the B6, for people who want a high-end TV and don't want to see the sound bar there's the G6.

I don't consider it's presence a negative on the E6 ......

It definitely works with other brands, but after all these years there are still quirks.

Me too. I didn't need the soundbar, and the HDMI-CEC insists on turning on my AVR anyway, but I wanted 3D and did not want the curve.

The looks are secondary, but I do appreciate them. I think...

The OLED on Glass design of the E6 and the G6 is pretty striking, especially from the side or back, so, I guess it comes down to whether you do or do not care to see the sound bar.

I wonder if you haggled them below the price where they'd rather just sell to someone else?

For me, the price difference between ECTVs and Cleveland Plasma was around 20%, and that was worth it.

Oh? According to what?

ECTV claims "Valid LG one year USA warranty" and I had no problems registering my E6P with LG.

Brightness is something of interest for HDR, but for regular viewing even during the day in a room with windows open the 2016 OLEDs put out plenty of light for SDR viewing.

I've purchased multiple times from East Coast over 7 years. The price you see is not what you'll get, but after the haggling is done, they will still probably get you a super price.

Yeah, like I said in the Fry's thread, LG has clearly done a nice job with packaging - what's basically a 65" sheet of glass, to survive typical shipping conditions.

lol, it's not just you. The E6 is really nice, and looking great always helps the WAF. The upgraded remote control is another nice touch.
