They gave guidance that they are spending...

They would never give direct pricing figures during a conference call and it is also worth remembering that the speakers work for LGD which only supplies panels to LG Electronics.

LG Display stated it during their conference call.

They expect to have their M2 fab fully ramped by the end of the year. It sounded to me like that means actual production before the end of the...

FWIW, FlatpanelsHD's hands-on impressions of the JS9500 from CES. They arent fans of HDR on LCD or automatic upscaling of the color gamut.

All 3 lines use quantum dots so they should have the expanded color gamut.

Hard to believe that Samsung would upscale the color gamut without an option to turn it off...but who knows?

FlatpanelsHD really doesnt like Samsung's JS9500....and this is the only model that is doing HDR with a FALD. The JS9000 and JS8500 are edge-lit.

Yes, but the 800 nit brightness figure is for only 10% of the screen. It is only going to be used to highlight small portions of the screen. I also doubt it is going to be used in every scene. The...

This just isnt true. There is only one line that is only curved and the HU9000 is priced astronomically. Do you think the $3000 55" and $4000 65" HU9000 models are outselling the 55HU7250 4K unit...

Samsung has 3 curved model lines. Only the HU9000 curved line has no flat equivalent. The other two curved lines are priced at about a 15% premium to flat versions with identical specs.

Yep, the full-screen brightness is capped at something like 60-80 cd/m2 while small areas can get up to 200 nits on the 55EC9300.

That compares to the HU9000 from Samsung which one review lists as...
