For the life of me, I cant figure out why people are up in arms about the preorder (MSRP) pricing. The 65EF9500 launched at $7000 on Amazon before seeing a price cut down to $6000 two weeks later...

If Samsung really has dropped 3D support from their 2016 sets then 3D is doomed. If you want a 3D set, I would figure out which one to buy this year.

Samsung and LG pulling back on 3D?

This article implies that Samsung will abandon it completely and LG will cut the number of models in half.

I did a quick search on the KS9500 and couldnt find any reference to 3D. Anybody know if...

Yes, no surprise there. I said when the price went up that they would spend that time filling channel inventory and preparing for a larger geographical launch. LG needed that pause in demand.

I think you'll get a $4000 price at Best Buy/Amazon this year but I have my doubts that they'll debut at that price. The fact that not even LG knows how much demand they might have been able to fill...

It would have been faster and cheaper to continue converting Gen 8 capacity but they obviously see a large amount of value in getting a a Gen 9 or 10 fab. It makes sense to me considering the BOE...

I would expect a low-end 65" set to be below $2k by the end of 2018. I would assume $1500 by sometime in 2019.

I think the latest was that the 1080p set has hit the "golden yield" which is their way of saying that it matches LCD. Perhaps hyperbole but it is supposed to be 90% or so. They expect 4K yields to...
