I don't think those of you who believe this is coming in 1-2 years or more understand how quickly the physical media business is imploding. It's not going to "stage a comeback" on the strength of a...

I love Robert, the shootout, and everyone's enthusiasm for it.

But, my Lord, this year's seems almost entirely pointless.

The Samsung OLED has not been manufactured in many months. It may not...

Um, maybe... But we'll have gone another year without it in 2014. There is no talk from the BDA...

While there may be a 4K BluRay product, it's not going to become mainstream. And I don't expect much in the way of software support. But more importantly, there'll be less in the way of distribution...

I simply don't agree that people with lots of money go and replace televisions frequently. Sure, certain wealthy videophiles do.

But most wealthy folks I know buy a TV very rarely. If they bought...

I'm glad to hear that a company that has developed an optical plastic claims it's better than glass and half the price. Whew.

The proof of the pudding is in the eating, however.

LG uses the 8G substrate size for their planned production, which will have a capacity of 26,000 sheets per month (if memory serves).

8G substrates are 2200 x 2500mm. You can make 6 55-inch TVs...

It seems much easier to conclude that the rumor was false than that Samsung canceled something deep...

Normals do not sit up close like some AVSers. They just don't.

So while I don't dispute the premise here, I dispute very much that it constitutes anything even slightly meaningful.

The utility of the former is completely clear: You wrap panels around things that aren't flat, that's got a lot of commercial...

You can post 10,000 pictures. Not one of them will prove that 1000:1 contrast is the limit of the human eye, because it isn't.



This is pretty much spot on.
