What's hard to swallow is seeing a 70" full array back lit with local dimming 4K set for $2500 2 years after I pay $7000 for a Sharp Elite 70" lol.

Last I read, Vizio was still trying to figure out the logistics of delivering a 120" screen. I could be wrong, but the 120" seemed to be more of a proof of concept set. Vizio has been widely...

I will admit that I haven't kept up with Black Friday sales in the last few years. Traditionally it has been the friday after Thanksgiving.

That being said, I would be surprised if there were...

Well, the ad does say only 5-11 available per store so they are probably going fast. But then again, not many people are really looking for Black Friday deals this early. I'm not so sure people are...

In my opinion, the success of 4K will rely on upscaling abilities. There are so many financial and technological hurdles to overcome before true 4K can become mainstream that I have serious doubts. ...

I would be careful about depending on resale value. The TV tech world moves fast and in a couple of years there will be a minimal market for a 2 year old set. Two years ago I paid $6700 for a 70"...

Here's an option.

I would get something like a 60" Vizio M series 1080P TV for now. It has great reviews and is very inexpensive. Let that hold you over for a year or two while the dust...

I believe it was David Katzimyer from CNET that had the Samsung curved set for about a week for review. From what I remember, he said the curvature neither added nor detracted from the PQ or viewing...

I don't mind watching the occasional passive 3D movie at the theater. But I tried to watch one active 3D film on my 70" Elite and couldn't take more than about a minute of it. Passive is the way to...

I don't think the cable companies really care now that they all have data caps. If you reach your cap from streaming 4K you will just have to pay for more data or start watch in 1080i instead.

I can certainly see the difference between 720 and 1080. I find the jump from HD to UHD though to be much smaller when observed from normal viewing distances. I have read the House of Cards 4K...

Sorry, I should have said based on the intervals between model releases, my best guess would be mid to late first quarter of 2015 for the R series. I would be very surprised if they released the R...

If the P series is being released mid October, the R series probably won't see the light of day until the middle of first quarter 2015.

They are likely just hoping people will equate the curved screen with IMAX and buy on the assumption they will get the same experience.
