I'm not really aware of what the advertised purpose of the shootout is. But it makes sense to have it relegated to what is available today. However, I would still like to know how today's best...

I see that local dimming is mentioned on the Panasonic site but full array is not mentioned, unless I just missed it. Can you call edge lit or frame lit local dimming?

You can only compare the 75c and the 70b because only they use a VA panel with Active 3d. Two major differences give the edge to the c but not by much. The c is full array vs the b's edge lit and the...

Agreed. I have no idea what kind if premium is legitimate when pricing FALD panels or where Vizio, Panasonic, Sony or Samsung are getting them. Maybe they are coming from Samsung or maybe from China....

You are correct. I am wrong. Even though when I looked at Amazon they do not show those sets I certainly believe they are avaiable.

I remember in 2012 or 2013 Sony said they would either not offer a FALD that year or only offer one. Their reason was cost to build. You have one manufacture offering under 65" FALD's Vizio) and one...

My feeling is that as OLED moves along it has a better chance of providing a superior picture than FALD based TV's because it's costly to implement FALD into a low to mid priced under 65" TV. We're...

Again not true? What's not true? That OLED has a better chance of becoming affordable than FALD LCD? No company other than Vizio has attempted to bring a under 65" FALD TV to market. Personally I...

In this shootout and the past few, every LCD TV was FALD. It looks like it will be FALD LCD vs OLED for the near future. My question is, is FALD the only way for LCD TV's to compete? If this is so...

How many high end panel manufactures are there and which one builds the best panel? Seems like rating the manufactures based on average panel superiority would be good information to have.

That's quite a generalization. No Best Buy anywhere could possibly have a calibrator that knows what he's doing? In your experience maybe. In general maybe.

Go with the 70". If you don't you will always wonder if you should have. 5" really is noticeable. Compare the sq.in. of viewing area. Do both sets under consideration have VA panels?

So Sony is junk. Where does that leave Samsug, LG, Sharp? I won't even ask about Vizio. Panasonic doesn't make their own panels. Unless you're putting all of your eggs in the LG OLED basket I guess...
