If we are going to make WAG's about a TV that nobody has, it could go either way huh?
No, and your trolling of a huge number of my posts isn't really helping anyone either.
I realize this is hard for you to process, so I'll explain it for everyone else who isn't here solely for the purpose of trolling me:
Samsung has already announced that the black level will be different by 10%. Therefore, it's not going to be different by 40%. That's not how marketing worse. They also made no promises about more brightness or anything else really special.
Since people are only going to have one TV in their family room/bedroom/whatever, they won't be A-B-ing it with some other TV once they make their purchase. The 2011 Samsungs delivered a very, very good picture. And not even Samsung is claiming their 2012 sets are going to be dramatically different. Since owners of 2011 sets already have very good TVs, its pointless for them to upgrade
. The differences are likely to be so slight, you might not even see them if the TVs were sitting next to each other.
And you won't be able to really see them
once you get rid of your 2011. You'll have to convince yourself something has happened, because even on objective measures, the differences will be slight.
Now, this isn't to say that someone with more money than they have use for shouldn't upgrade. They might want the voice control so badly, it's worth four figures to get it. But this is a community and people come seeking advice. Since I've already seen the 2012 Samsung plasmas, I am quite qualified to provide the advice:For owners of 2011 Samsungs, an upgrade is not going to be worth your money
. This isn't even a controversial position; virtually no one here at AVS upgrades last year's TV with this year's. Does it happen? Sure. Is it common? No.
Now, feel free to resume your trolling David. I'm sure you can manage your non-contributions to even more discussions.
