Who said this, Vizio? I think anyone who desires a larger angle of viewing is the market for these.

This is my response to why some people prefer IPS panels or more accurately, dislike VA. (note the panel behind the GoT geeks. obviously their budget doesn't allow for OLED. ;))

the Sony X830C (http://www.sony.com/electronics/televisions/xbr-x830c-series) series (43 & 49") has 4K IPS panels, but I think it's out of your price range. I believe their 1080p panels, which would...

Amen. When my Samsung 60F8500 goes I'm not sure what I'll do. Maybe I'd try and track down the Panasonic DX900 FALD with the 512 dimming zones, but apparently it has a very tight VA panel viewing...

Just don't enable the "Adv. Contrast Enhancer" feature on the frame dimming Sony's (like the x810c) and that will keep it off. Unfortunately that control is also tied to the contrast boost. I wish...

I have a 43X830C in the bedroom, like you that's the biggest the wall would accept. It's IPS, so the colors stay intact over a wider angle, which is what we wanted, but the contrast suffers because...

Wow. The reviewer's flat out refusal to use the Adv. Contrast Enhancement (i.e. initiating frame dimming) features of the X85D isn't doing it any favors. It's an IPS panel, you really don't have much...

No, not sure. There's scattered info out there, would probably have to get the spec sheets from MediaTek. I tried to run 3DBenchmark (Android) on mine, it's terrible. Though to be fair, these...

This review could also hold mostly true for the X830C series as well, minus the Triluminous stuff that's missing there. It's unfortunate Sony doesn't give more control over their ACE feature (i.e....

Yeah, the price of the Sony, for what it is, is too high. I'm not sure if there are licensing fees for Android TV or not, which could account for some of the premium. Though it is only $50 above the...
