I agree re certain scenes in new movies, nature, etc. But for everything else, HDR will make little or no difference. It won't impact the news, sports, most tv shows, or older movies, whereas the...

I think both Ken and Mark make valid points about the desirability of HDR. Using Sony's proprietary version as an example, I've watched the dynamic range 4k loop Sony uses on both the 950B and the...

I hear your main theme and agree. I just note that the benefits of HDR are debatable. I've seen it look really cool and also overdone. Certainly it adds to some scenes but even new movies will...

Some of these potential changes, if they ever materialize, would likely have little impact on PQ. More zones and 240hz will really help, the rest not so much. And the tech for more zones has been...

Thus far, have either the AUO panels or the Sharp panels emerged as superior, or are they fairly equivalent?

Thanks so much, Chad. You noted some choppy pans pre-calibration - did that motion handling improve post-calibration? Any other motion issues?

Typical marketing misdirection. Look at how much the prices on the 2014 models dropped. LG simply doesn't want everyone to wait.

I understand your frustration. On the other hand, for sports or other fast-paced programming, you can watch on one of the plasmas, and reserve the OLED for dark movie duty. That's what I would do...

I can see normal judder on a plasma set to display at 60 with 24 fps content but it's not a huge issue for me. Whether LG's way of dealing with it is worse or not, I don't know yet.

I've got 3 plasmas, so no dog in the LCD v. OLED fight. We all agree that neither FALD LCD nor OLED (by LG) is yet perfected. None of the plasma faults bother me, except false contouring, which i...

A. In the dark, no.

B. And when the screen is in use, I don't care 'cause I'm not looking at the speakers.

C. Otherwise, yes, the Sony looks a little better.

I have no doubt that the 930's will be superior. (Since I watch in a dedicated theater room, looks are irrelevant.) My point was instead that detachable speakers are not necessarily junk.

I disagree - My Pioneer Kuro 151 has detachable speakers and they look and sound just fine. I don't use them that much, but they're more than adequate for watching football, etc.

I hear you but it's not just Sony - the Vizio R remains completely unknown as to if, when, or how much, and the LG 2015 OLED availability date/pricing is also far from clear.
