Everyone who has seen the set has been amazed and ask "How did you get that picture?"
i didnt want to turn this into a fanboy deal, i can understand that to many, just because something cost more/alot, they take that as in better...which is completely false. so im not going to call you a fanboy.
i have a question for you, how many HDTVs do you have? This makes my third, in the same house. People who can look at two different sets in their homes and call out differences certainly have more of an idea what their talking about, dont you think?
who said anything about floating blacks or buzzing?
"How did you get that picture?" so what your saying is they have another plasma equivalent to yours?
There is ZERO pop. like i said im not a fanboy of any company i want good picture, and unfortunately this doesnt have that. What good does a deep black do when all the other colors are so bland? It does have good blacks, but blacks arent everything. they may be the biggest piece to the puzzle but not the entire determining factor.
3d look, are you kidding me? im not even gonna touch that one.
and last but not least, which i will call complete BS on....even if the blacks rise they will deeper than most out there? Oh freakin please. yea deeper than that 400 50" from walmart maybe, they are not going to touch their own plasmas from 3 years ago, let alone the sammy's that are running around. That deepness after the rise is not even possible from the panny fanboys over at cnet, according to their numbers. remember its gonna rise three fold. and before that whole "all sets do this" if they did than panny wouldnt have gotten slammed the way they did, not to mention my panny 800u is still top notch. give me a break, we as consumers are paying money to these companies not the other way around. dont defend them because they did something good two years ago. call it like it is
as far as me doing something wrong, thats not possible. i have worked with these tv for too many years to mess up now. the things i look for in a tv are different from the average consumer.
and so that it could be known, and again to repeat. I do not care what company it comes from, or how good of a picture the tvs of the past had, i am concerned with now. completely objective. dont worry the sammys have their issues also.
