When I commented on 'softness', it was the Camera Store's review, shot on the XC10, that I was discussing.

Such an obvious lack of detail (forget sharpness, this has nothing to do with...

Hatch, I'm honestly not surprised. It really looks like HD upconverted to 4K. It's just so soft and lacking in detail.

Aside from any size constraints you might have, I can't think of any.

If you can handle the 940c's size, you'll be gaining a very valuable 10" of screen real estate. That's a really good thing...

I was prepared to run an Ethernet cable to my 940c out of fear that the 4K wireless streaming would be inadequate for uninterrupted viewing.

My concern was unwarranted as the wireless has...

I hear stuff like that too from time to time. The only thing is, I don't see it on mine. I saw it on the shootout 940c, but I see nothing like that on mine. In fact I deliberately bought Life of Pi...

Thanks mo. That's really odd in that I've yet to see a 940c that looked like that. In the owners threads I've not heard of an owner complaining about that either. He may have just gotten a bad one.

Fafrd, you are correct, the 77" OLED is not worth a $2,000 premium let alone any premium over the 940c. When you have a picture that's essentially the same size with no near black uniformity issues,...

My interpretation of what they were saying was the visual difference between 4:2:0 and higher color sampling rates was very hard to see. It was not really a commentary on HD vs 4K, IMO.

No. Both will be displayed in 4K. It is probably likely that even if the Sony doesn't display the HDR piece in the HDR that was intended, it would convert it to its own interpretation of HDR since it...

Frank, since I was at the shootout, I did have the opportunity to see both. My preference, obviously, was for the 940c. The Samsung was excellent, but the fact that the Sony had much less blooming...

Nothing is fully confirmed yet, but it's probably best to assume, as I did, it's not a full 18Gbps. With that said, I believe Sony had...

I don't even venture into the plasma threads anymore. Some people are simply too close-minded. When you're like that, you tend to miss some amazingly good displays outside of your comfort zone.

Mattias, I know it's the look you're after, but much too soft to my eyes. Any chance that you can you shoot something, straight from the camera, with something closer to default settings?

Wxman, my prior main viewing display was the 64F8500. I can tell you the blacks on the 940c (my new display) are significantly better than the F8500 and even slightly better than my Sharp Elite.

The clouding that was mentioned was with the dimming off. Owners don't watch that way, therefore there is no clouding in the normal mode.

This is the best sample I've seen yet. It's actually pretty good barring the somewhat limited dynamic range. But color & detail seem quite nice.

I couldn't agree more. I've rarely seen such consistency for uniformity on a screen of this size, with virtually any display tech.

I've said it for a while now, this may be a case of 'too little and too late'.

Sony, Samsung & LG have gotten big leads on Vizio with their premium 940c, 9500 and OLED displays. Really, how much...

Bazz, yes, from what I've seen thus far, the PQ of the NX1 is superior. I've been disappointed with the color, stability and, to a lesser degree, the detail in the RX10 II videos.

Yup, that's probably true, but since I just purchased a 75" UHD TV, I'll only be shooting 4K. My HD shooting days ended almost 2 years ago. :)
