To me at least, the Vizio 4K demo blows away the Samsung demo. Being an 70" Elite owner, I would not have thought that 72 zones would be sufficient for FALD. However, judging from the demo alone it...

Yes, that's why I suspect there might have been something wrong with the set. And yes, I can tell a massive difference between SD and HD. While there is a smaller jump from HD to UHD, I can most...

I have only seen the upscaling ability of one set. The Samsung 9000 curved 65". They were showing Avatar and to be honest, I could not tell any improvement at all over HD. In fact, I could make an...

I think now is just a bad time to be buying a TV. We are in limbo between 1080P and 4K. Buying an HD set now and two years later, it could very well be obsolete. Buy a UHD set now, and you have...

I highly doubt 8K content will be 6 years out. Probably something like 25. We will probably be viewing movies on a holodeck before we see 8K as a standard.

lol I sit about 6 feet away from my 70" Sharp Elite and I wish I had an 84". Or larger. I can't imagine sitting 18 feet away from any sized TV.

I read some discussion debating whether the 120" will be "affordable". That's a relative term, but I saw a video regarding the R series a few days ago. They said "For those of you that think the...

I read somewhere that the R series is ready now. They are just waiting for the Dolby HDR Vision content. That will be something completely new and I'm sure they want to be able to showcase a demo...

If you are concerned I would either get an extended warranty with the store you bought it from (if available) or get one through Safetrade

Great post. And I'm with you on wanting larger screens. I have a 70" now, but really want at least an 84". However, regardless of the desire for larger screens, one has to realize that most people...

I think the most promising hope for OLED comes from an unrelated use for the tech. Apparently, plants love OLED light sources and grow quite well under them. Much research is being done to use...

Perhaps they push whatever they have a bigger inventory of at the time. I never listen to them anyway. It's very rare you get a salesman that has much knowledge of the sets they are selling.

I think it was a smart move by Vizio. Cut out all the extras to undercut the 4K competition by a wide margin on price. Then take a wait and see approach on the success of glasses-free tech and add...

I actually love a touch of SOE. It gives almost a 3D effect without the glasses. But I don't like it dialed up to maximum. However, I always hated the full motion blur of old film. I remember as...
