I know we lose color sensitivity in darkness, but that doesn't mean we lose sensitivity to luminance in brightness. I highly doubt that's the case. Can you provide some links that our 120 million...

UHD 420 will look superior / sharper / clearer to FHD 444, no question. And no matter the bit depth or color space. But it won't benefit all that much for TV users. However projectors are another...

+1, absolutely on point.

The trend has been to forego parallel interfaces for serial ones, to increase bandwidth. It seems counterintuitive until one learns about interference and signalling...

Yes he is. Poor black level capability of LCDs has nothing to do with HDR being important and viable in terms of innovation to the existing standard. The human vision system doesn't care about our...

Are they getting them in at Best Buy? I'd love to go down and see one.

Don't the 2015 models have HDR support?

If so, definitely get that over the 2014, no question. I saw the new Sony TVs at Best Buy and they look awesome.

9k is a bit tight to get 7 of these + a sub + a receiver. Maybe a 5.1 setup which you can upgrade later. Or, even better, a 6.1 setup. 2 slant-8s...

Not really sure what those youtube videos are supposed to prove. The ones with the pico are of a game and it's very hard to tell what it would look like in person. Sure, it's dim, but the video...

That's interesting, but I'm not sure if it's accurate.

Pretty sure they did the review with the lamp to Low, not Smart Eco (or its equivalent). Since there is no DI, the only dynamic measurement...

The best 65 inch tv ever made for $7600? Not too shabby. It's 2015, many people told us not to expect sub-10k 4K OLEDs before 2020, if then.

I guess we all know how that turned out. Predictions...

RF glasses have better lumens and contrast, right? Because DLP-Link uses red-flash correct?

Right, what I meant to say was if you could choose Stream A : 1920x810 (or 800 or whatever), or Stream B : 2560x1080, or Stream C : 1920x1080 anamorphic.

Of course that would obviate the need for...

Isn't IFA mostly about projectors? I'd love to see HDR projection for the home market, even if it's only at 1080p + e-shift.
