Hobbs, how would you say the motion on the OLED was in comparison to the Elite? From an overall picture quality standpoint, if the OLED is a 10, what would you rate the Elite? I'm trying to gauge how...

Where have you seen measurements taken in THX mode?

I don't know if/why other calibrators don't know of the THX setting. I didn't ask. Per Gregg there are algorithms in THX that are not present...

In your experience of calibrating Elites in THX mode (along with the same equipment Gregg uses), what have your findings been? Clearly they are different than one of the best calibrators in the...

Andy, I'm pretty much sure the 60" Elite has 240 dimming zones and the 70" has 300. As for cyan, Gregg Loewen (THX's video instructor for the U.S.) told me as long as the set is calibrated in THX...

Just because there are uber expensive sets this time does not mean people cannot figure out for themselves the best set for themselves at a given price point. If we didn't have the extreme high...

People will sooner or later find that 4K is highly overrated. The resolution may be getting better but the human eye keeps staying the same.

D-Nice, would you say its a foregone conclusion that OLED will win the shootout. Is there anyway that an LED LCD can compete at this time?

Thanks.

Greater than 20'? Ouch. It's probably heresy to say in these parts but give a good look at a big Sharp LCD. Sure there are better displays but at 20'+ you won't see it anyway.

Supply and demand rules the day. Amazon shouldn't (have to) be any different in regards to pricing. If the set can be found cheaper elsewhere, all things considered, buy there.
