It's not a bad thing to have 235-255 flash. Games still use that range, so you'd be crushing whites if they didn't flash. IIRC the ps3 just hard clips at 235 with discs unless you enable the "super...

I would have agreed with you until recently, because crosstalk really bothers me too...but my lightboost LCD monitor has so little crosstalk it's not a bother at all. I don't know if the latest LCDs...

I've read some interview with Newell where he talked about how he wants to make it easy for people to make custom controllers, so you might get your wish.

I suppose that is a pretty big problem. :p

It may still be useful for testing the scaling quality of an AVR or other outboard scaler though.

Which is why I think that Xbox feedback site is great - the battery notification and 3D bluray were near the top of the list, so they actually had some data on how many people were asking that...

I think there's room for subjectivity, but I'd prefer that be in the form of two images side by side that I can judge for myself. The descriptive language of an subjective opinion is like a second...

UHD/4K Quandary: To Buy or Not to Buy

They don't even support 3D bluray yet, so UHD support may be a long way off.

Yikes.

Well, I'm just going by casual reading of reviews. Most 4K sets that I've seen are flagships that are overall pretty good performers (for LCDs.) But just like you, I'm simply not...

True, but outside of those cheapo seiki monitors, can you point to any 4K LCDs that aren't competitive or superior than other 1080p LCDs?
