I don't believe you'll find any 4K 60p content. More probable is 4K@30p.

Also, if your ports are not HDMI 2.0, I'm pretty sure you won't get those speeds anyway.

Of course this is all true. However, as opposed to most other testing criteria (CR, color accuracy, etc.), viewing angle, if important to someone, is easily checked by any prospective buyer in the...

Rich, not much different here in the states. They've closed the 2 Long Island stores as well as most around the U.S., leaving only the Manhattan store here in N.Y.

I don't think you need an objective measurement to make a statement like the reviewer did. When you've seen and reviewed so many VA panels, you get a sense as to what constitutes an 'average'. When a...

Yes, Rich, I was impressed with the 940c the first time I saw it...and I was at a retailer to see the 65" OLED. I wasn't even aware of the existence of the Sony.

So living with it, after my 65"...

Not sure why you chuckled. I attended the shootout with the 65" OLED, Sony 940c and 2 others (did you?). I went in to that leaning toward OLED. When I left, I wasn't 'chuckling'. :rolleyes:

Consistent with what I said when I first responded to the above silliness, is the following review released today. Now that I've lived with the 940c for a while, I can honestly say that rarely have I...

Really? I have the same experience as Greg, but with a Sony 940c. Unquestionably better PQ than my prior F8500 plasma, which won the shootout during the year it was introduced.

I just love the...

So I found my replacement DVR sitting on my doorstep yesterday. Unfortunately it was another HR34. However this one seems quite a bit faster than the old one. We'll see how long that lasts.

Yet the 3 Amazon shows that were cited as having HDR, did look different on my 940c. Casanova had a color palette that looked broader along with brighter highlights. So to me, I might have guessed I...

Works on mine. In fact I had to do just that since I received a replacement Genie from my defective one. The display button showed the proper resolution.

The maxed out settings for brightness & contrast are horrid! They are way way way too bright. When I first got the set and put it in vivid mode, I thought my wife was going to file for divorce. It's...

And I would say that's not good. No videophile would ever use Vivid mode. It's just plain ugly. If that's how HDR will be handled, count me out. :(

A 'measurable' difference, but one that almost nobody would pick up by the naked eye...and, without a reference point, zero chance. :)

Im sorry to be repetitive, but that's precisely my point. Going from normal or calibrated settings to vivid or dynamic, will make any clip look far punchier and dynamic. Who is to say what role the...

I don't know what the max output of the 940c is, but I'd be surprised if it isn't the brightest or 2nd brightest TV on the market. In fact, FWIW, I don't think I've ever seen a brighter display in my...

Andy, totally disagree. The upconversion on my Sony 940c looks as good, if not better than on either my Samsung F8500 or Sharp Elite. I'd agree with Greg on this.

Adding to this is the fact that...

However keep in mind that the compression scheme in effect can greatly impact bandwidth requirements. H265 requires much less of a bitrate to achieve the same PQ as H264.

That's too bad. :(

Otherwise they charge you $299 for an upgrade. I thought it was worth a shot to see what I'd get. My current HR34 is hideously slow.

Called D* yesterday for a replacement DVR under warranty. They can't guarantee what model I get, but a local dealer thinks it will likely be an HR44. We shall see.
