That's good - anything you could find out about the other unit would be most appreciated - size, lighting, full HDR, 10 bit etc. If it competes with the 740 and isn't encumbered by side speakers,...

The speakers make the unit wider, they make the unit thicker, they make the unit heavier (limiting mounting options), they don't look as nice as units without the speakers, oh and you are paying for...

My guess is that isn't the final price - probably just a go ahead order here first ploy. I bet they don't have them in stock yet.


I would bet 1 month after they are in stock at a few...

I own a Panasonic plasma as well - but that doesn't support 4K. I've set up a few Samsungs for friends and clients. I wasn't impressed with the motion on their 4K models at all but they certainly...

This shows my age but I remember when we upgraded from a 19" b&w that never could stop flipping (horizontal hold?) to a 25" console and thought it was huge indeed part of that was the absurd size of...

You are correct - I remember having that old 25" console TV forever when I was growing up. You replaced it when it was too costly to repair as the standards really hadn't changed over that time. ...

Nor does it say there won't be any 4K bluray movies needing 18GB/s to take full advantage of it - this argument is like trying to DISPROVE the existence of something.


However - 3840x2160 ...

I don't have ANY 60fps movies - of course I don't have a 4K disc player either :P Since I like the hobbit and would buy the 4K version - how is that a moot point? Are you already speaking with...

You could be correct but I'm just repeating what I've read on hdmi.org and hdguru. I think if you split audio and video to 2 HDMI 10gbps ports you could do that but if you want all on one I think...

I believe it is if you have the bells and whistles - e.g. HDR 50-60fps or 4K 3D. Of course I'm just regurgitating what I read elsewhere - I don't know.

They could have definitively stated if their HDMI ports are 18GB/s or 10GB/s at CES. I'm not sure the HDR standards were finalized by CES.

I had pretty much the same question - my concern is the hedging of words - e.g. "compatible" with HDR or "supports" it. A USB 3.0 memory stick is compatible with a 2.0 port - and usb 2.0 ports...

Too bad they don't have FLAT flagship TVs - I'd consider one too. They should stop stacking them on the short edge in hot ships - they get warped in the middle by the time they get here.

I own both and have had them side by side and you can easily see from 15' away the difference. I have 20/20 vision though. I doubt Stevie Wonder could tell the difference from 15' away but I...

Thanks - they said scart in the video but I thought that might be a word that didn't translate when I tried to look it up. I haven't heard of one before. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SCART

The link is about 1 second early as he skims over the connector so quickly, I didn't want people to miss it. I'm asking about the big honkin' thing about 6cm long with about 30 pin female receptor. ...

I'm starting to feel that way too. So many specs - HDR, REC 2020, HDMI 2.0 18GB/s - not the same as HDMI 2.0 10GB/s, 60FPS, 10 bit screen vs. 10 bit dithering, HDCP 2.2, NITs, FALD or edge lit...
