I don't get this 300 LEDs and 110 zones. I always thought the number of LEDs are also the number of zones on a FALD set. 110 zones seems too low on a 80" set.

Can't sign in anymore. On PC I get an error msg, on Roku I enter the password and nothing happens at all. Dish should fire the whole software team who programmed this garbage.

I think people are underestimating what Dolby Atmos represent. It's not a gimmick, it's the real deal. I watched a demo and could switch between DTS-HD and D Atmos and the difference is amazing. Look...

If this is a real picture, the blacks look amazing on my monitor. The Elite was perhaps the best LED display made so far, with a fantastic video processor.

I will be very surprised if the upcoming shootout puts the 78JS9500 ahead of the 75X940C. The Panasonic is just the underdog, no chance.

Ken, why is that " it default to vivid every few minutes" ? Some sort of demo mode ? I also saw all the 2015 sets available in stores and the 75X940C is the only one I would have in my place.

You are right and one of the few here who understands that only the UX model is FALD. All other talks about the other models is just pure wishful thinking.

The only FALD model is the UX30, also called "beyond 4k" by Sharp. There is no miracle, a FALD set would not cost that low, at least in 2015. A lot of misunderstandings here caused by bad wording...

Best Buy should have the 789500 next to the 75940C in the Magnolia room. I saw both and found the Sony better, much closer to the "plasma look" I was looking for.

Don't believe it is going to be a 85940C, otherwise we would already have known. A 85950C or a 85940D perhaps? Pure speculation, obviously, but I would be all in for it.
