Only one full-bandwidth HDMI port out of the five. Fine for today but not future-proof.

These sets sound very appealing, but only one full-bandwidth HDMI port kills it for me. Sure fine for todsy but that's not remotely future proof.

Have to concur with you there. I was stoked about the HDR concept pre-CES, but when I saw the HDR sets there I was underwhelmed. Don't care much about it now.

I expect "4k" players will all be playing content at 16:9, 3840x2160, not 17:9 "true" 4k.

You'll love the 4k projector (with HDMI 2.0b) you buy in 9-12 months even more. Maybe get an IRIS too for the same price. So wait :rolleyes:

Interesting. Is 4:4:4 color really important for gaming? I was under the impression that it didn't make much difference. Really appreciate the answer, just asking for clarification.

Good perspective. Would the color and chroma limitations at 60fps practically impact PC gaming (for one day when 4k gaming is more practical)? My gut tells me no but want to make sure I'm not...

Given that almost no 4k TVs sold to date are capable of those features, they may never be widely used anyway. It is a modest drawback though and also factors into my reasoning for not pulling the...

I got the same 5% off TV + Soundbar code. If anyone has a 10% code they're not going to use and wants to make a few $ off of it, please PM me.

Yea, not worried about 4k. That train is unstoppable. Thinking the HDR part, which I haven't seen in person but sounds like a big advancement.

I went ahead and pulled the trigger. I'm thinking the consumer release won't happen until 2015 and there is fun (and first on block cred) to be had with various demos and hacks in the interim.
