My vacuum cleaner did the same thing a few weeks ago. Of course I bought a replacement before it started working again.

If I were you, I would just make something in word. It's not like they can call and verify the authenticity.

Unless you're an idiot who picks up a sub without thinking about poking holes in the driver with your fingers.

I believe all receivers EQ all subs as a single unit. And Eq'ing is mostly done to correct for placement within the room.

All things being equal, a matching sub is preferred, but I think the most important thing is the two subs need to have similar capabilities.

The most surprising result is the Panny beat the Sony. Good thing Sony is coming out with the ZD9.

The 100" is 78% larger than the 75" and has 75% more LEDs. So it seems to scale almost perfectly. Also, brightness is measured in terms of surface area so while the 100" will likely give off more...

You should add that they only go up to 65". I don't count the 77".

I think LG is killing themselves by not offering larger TVs. People who are willing to spend $4K+ want a big TV.

You won't notice black crushing unless you view it side by side with an LCD. It's silly to worry about it. Just pretend it's not happening and enjoy the beautiful picture.

It appears they tested both HDR10 and DV. Since some of the TVs don't do DV, I wonder if maybe they were comparing Apples to Oranges at times. Either way, I think all the TVs are top notch. You can't...

You may be right, but I'm guessing Sony only has so much assembly line space for 75" TVs and they'll favor whichever one makes them the most profit. If I ran Sony and it cost about the same to make a...

Blooming in a non issue on my 940c. The only time I see it is in credits and even then, it's barely noticeable. I would assume with the ZD9, it's even less of an issue.

You're more concerned about that then the green rays coming off the lights near the bottom left?

That picture can't reflect what it really looks like.

I agree all things being equal, OLED is the better choice. At least for TVs that I've seen in person. I just wish OLED came in larger sizes.

HDR10 looks great on my 940c. I would assume it can only look better in their new models. I've never seen DV, but I have a difficult time imagining it can look much better.

Some people prefer TVs over 65" that cost under $10,000. Plus OLEDs have black crush issues that LCDs don't have.
