They still make Xbox 360 software too. But I think most of agree it's "dead" from an interest stand point and only a matter of time.

And there you can go buy new hardware.

For 3DTV at home, new...

This, again, is why I don't understand how anything edge-lit can claim to be HDR. You can't do high dynamic range across an image with edge lighting. It's physics, nothing more. You can aggressively...

3D is obviously dying in the home.

You can't (essentially) rent it anymore. And the most high-end buyers are now going to get a format that doesn't support it. Vizio dropped it with zero effect on...

Boy try to say something nice about the current state of OLED (all is well, we're exactly where we should be) and even that gets people riled.

And, yes, plasma took 30+ years before you could...

Thing to consider (hypothetical):

Someone in LG product marketing decided to make the B6 and the C6 functionally equivalent, which is why the prices for them are now the same.

This assumes (a)...

The fact that it's taken ~15 years is entirely the point.

It takes that long for every flat panel technology that has made it to become commercially viable.

OLED has crossed that threshold. But...

Released to whom? Evidence of this claim outside of Panasonic's marketing speak?



Evidence for this from whom? Certainly not LG, which has made no claims of differentiating the panels.

I "liked" this only for the name check.

OTOH, I don't see how Sony's failure to put out a player really matters.

If they don't put out better titles than "The Amazing Spider-man 2”, “Salt”,...

Factory? It was a line that produce 100s of displays.

Now it produces even fewer of the transparent ones for special uses.

It has no mass production capability. It never did.

I'm pretty confident the market for $4000 55-inch TVs and $6000 65-inch TVs, globally, is nowhere near 1 million units.

Q4 is hugely seasonal for TV sales. LG's "200K quarter" probably included an...

Well, constriction of the pupil is pretty slow. I think the HDR set would do a better job of blinding you than a non-HDR set!

It's more like 200 lbs. than 400 lbs. You are maybe thinking old plasma weights? A 60-inch LCD is just over 40 lbs. Even with everything in the box, a typical Vizio is 56 lbs. I doubt the shipped...

Pretty hard to take seriously that the C and B will have the same price when one explicitly has a feature (3D) the other lacks. But by all means believe Adorama.
