I see people talking about the logistics of getting the 120" around corners or up stairs. This is not a set you will be able to run down to Best Buy and pick up. It is still my understanding that...

I would love to be proved wrong, but I think the price might actually be above $70,000. Perhaps MUCH higher than 70K. Vizio does a great job on giving us bang for you buck. However, I just see no...

lol how long before one of these TV's uses its Skype feature to call the police because it catches you smoking pot.

Oh I agree, and THX is a good example. I don't care for that at all. And my apologies if my comments came off as critical of those who like curved. That was not my intention. My frustration is...

Many reviewers have judged the curve to have no effect on PQ or negative effect. David Katzmyer of CNET is one of them. However, when I saw my first curved set, I was highly unimpressed. Most of...

I think some of us like me who prefer flat are worried that the curved gimmick will take over and vastly limit the options. I have no problem with those that prefer curved. But it does not improve...

Well, at some point after billions in R&D have been spent, manufacturers had to change directions. LG has been the only one to somewhat solve the OLED panel failure rate problem. And as you said,...

I don't know if it's anything more than speculation at this point. I would think that would put 4K blu ray dead in the water if true. Not many are going to run out and buy a newer 4K set because...

Well, I'm more looking for a family friend right now. I bought a 70" Elite two years ago and can't really justify making the next buy yet. My next set will have to be 80" minimum with FALD. I'd...

I actually laughed the first time I saw one on display. It's the silliest, most gimmicky thing they have done yet with TV tech. I used to bash the 3D craze but at least that has some function. The...

I really want to see how the P series upscales but the ones on the showroom are all in demo mode with no way to hook up another source. The only 4K set I've seen upscale is the Samsung 65" 9000...

I read that the upcoming UHD bluray players in December will require 18gps. If all the sets up till now could not play 4K discs because of that, to me that would make UHD disks dead in the water.

I believe one of the big problems with OLED at the moment is bad marketing. They should be showcased at Magnolia centers aimed at high end buyers. Right now you walk into any Best Buy and they are...

I believe my Elite has around 260. I don't think it was officially ever released by Sharp. Someone took the set apart and counted them. That being said, the Vizio R series coming out soon will...

This is not always the case. Back around 2008, Samsung introduced one of the early FALD sets(8500) but it was quickly discontinued. For years after that, the industry actually regressed in regards...

The article states they expect it to be priced significantly more than $25,000. Perhaps a Saudi oil sheik will purchase one or two.
