Sharp also paid way more spiffs (spivs?) than anyone else. Thats an immediate bonus on top of your 1% commission.

UHD isn't going to drive sales.

How many people just bought their first HDTV in 2009, 2010, 2011? They didn't run out to buy 3D and they won't for UHD either.

Stripping out the Dolby Digital and MPEG2 decoders makes it worthless for me. I'll be happy with Windows 7 and Linux for the foreseeable future.
