Thats all a publicity stunt. Notice how Samsung first shows their 75" ES9000 for $17,400 then one week later its magically only $9,999. LG likes to plan their actions meticulously while observing their ultimate rival Samsung so its common sense their not going to make their first public announcement regarding the price at lower of what Samsung initially asked for, especially since the LG is 4K and 84". Its all a marketing form of schlong measuring and I bet you anything LG will announce the new price 1-2 weeks later and it will probably be around $10-12.

That's what I'm thinking as well. I hope that LG does announce a US price in week or so, and hopefully it'll be in the $10K-$12K range.

Next up 960mhz refresh

You are right when you said that you barely hear 3D buzz anymore and the next buzz word is 4K. Most of the TVs released nowadays especially the smart TVs of Panasonic, the Cinema 3D of LG, Sony, etc are all packed with 3D. Thus, 3D has become an industry standard.

3D may have become the industry standard, but there is virtually no 3D content. Maybe 30 titles or so? And almost no cable/satellite support. This tells me that studios don't believe there is long lasting staying power. Which makes sense because it's been a fad that shows up every decade or two and fades away.

"30 titles or so?" Do you live in a time freeze zone? I have about 40 myself and I've read here of others having over a hundred. Hollywood is still making movies in 3D so the numbers are still heading up not to mention 3D from 50's and 80's that have been announced and rumored. You sound like a hater with bad connections.
post #70 of 115
There are plenty of 3d movies out there not counting the independant films and on top of that if you have not notice majority of movies coming out have a 3d version whether it be real 3d or that conversion trash still another 3d movie to add to the books i think the issue is mainly some folks have not seen good 3d period but i will admit that wearing glasses could bother several on top of that me personally when i watch a 3d movie i could stomach maybe one a day as i dont want to be wearing glasses all day and night either but i enjoy it for sure, now buying this over priced tv to watch 3d its stupid and as far as the guy with the hook up price you might have one but your not getting this new lg or the 90" sharp or new samsung anywhere near 5k unless its stolen i mean fell off the back of the truck wink.gif

I don't remember any 3D TVs ever being produced before.

At least, it has local dimming... but at 10k it's a no go.

There's always the guys who has to have the latest and greatest price no factor. Reminder back around 05 here on AVS quite a few members here pre-order and waited feverishly like a kid on Xmas eve on their Sony 006 Qualia and it wasn't even laser thin or LED but 24" deep and weighed a ton. And they thought this was great buy for the return on having this great set. Looking back it wasn't so great now was it? So imagine what the big spenders will go hog wild for a even bigger 75" LED less than 1" can be mounted on wall fairly easily and 4K to boot.

The tv does have 2D to 3D conversion so everything you watch can potentially be 3D! Besides, Hollywood has recognized added value in 3D. Now there won't be 2, but 3 Hobbit films in 3D. There's more 3D on the way than just the animated movies. Hollywood is releasing more and planning on more. There is also ESPN3D and 3DNet which are both 3D channels. It's still early days for 3D. Although HD was helped by a Federal Mandate, 3D will be helped by market demand. Regardless, this is really irrelevant to this thread's main topic.

I once talked to LG Customer Service about a month or so ago and was told Late September - Mid October for a release date for this set. You'd figure that the site wouldn't say "discontinued" if they plan on releasing it in a few months. I'm curious, too, if it's going to be another broken promise from LG or if they are going to try to appeal to early adopters.
post #77 of 115
I did not get a chance to see the new samsung 75 inch tv, but for LG they are saying october for their release thats why i do not understand the website (discontinued) unless they have a new model coming out maybe a 90 Incher now that would be good.

With the likes of sharp with their 90 inch 4k tv that will be out too at the later end of the year, it could be a buisness move to wait and see. But they also are suppose to have their 80 inch elite out in october too.

I am dying to buy a new TV but all this new tech stuff thats keep changing everyday is driving be crazy with release dates. Here is a link of movbis that were filmed over digitally transferered to 4K "Most of these films were not "shot" in 4K -- most were shot on film, others on "lesser" forms of digital -- but they were all mastered for DCP in 4K... that's a vow Sony made as a distributor."

http://pro.sony.com/bbsc/ssr/mkt-digitalcinema/resource.latest.bbsccms-assets-mkt-digicinema-latest-4kmoviereleaseslisting.shtml#2011

Sony was onto something with their qualia LCOS tecnology, i have a good friend who works for sony in the tech department and sales, he said it was too exspensive for them to make and thats why they have given up on it for now. just imagine liquid crystal on silcon with full LED and full aray local diming. The qualia back then when it came out the picture was outstanding, LCOS is way better than LCD technology. sony has it on the backburner for now.

Interested there is a nice selection, but now we will can view them, There are already Bluray players coming that can upconvert bluray to 4K, receivers with 2K/4K passthrough etc.. and now the TV's.

I think next year willbe the year of 4K and 3D televisons, OLED is still way too exspensive AS I AM LOOKING FOR SOMETHING IN THE SIZE OF 80INCHES AND ABOVE.

next few will be interesting

How is that the competition and it's not even 4K?! It's not like we don't have huge ass flatscreens out already upwards of 80" (Sharp). I'd buy a 10K 4K set before I buy I'd spend 10K on a 1080p set....

I couldn't agree more. I'd definitely spend 10k-12K on a 4K TV over a 1080p non 4k TV at 10K. 10K for a 75 inch non 4K TV is over priced imo.

Well it looks like the 84LM9600 is no longer listed as "Discontinued" on LG's United Arab Emirates site. So it looks very promising that this TV will indeed get released.smile.gif Now just have to wait for the official price tag on the full production model.
post #82 of 115
LG has been producing vaporware for years. OLED should have been out over a month ago. Last year they made claims of tvs with features that never came to light. The same the year before. They also exaggerate all of the improvements (moreso than any other manufacturer) prior to release. Use their plasma lines black levels from last year. They stated that their black levels would lead the industry and ultimately what they produced was a tv with really good grays (literally).

As eager as I am to see a 4k panel, when it comes to LG, I'll believe it when I see it, which usually comes from another manufacturer first.

Well looks like some bubble busting is in order today: Already sold in Korea!. Granted it's not the US, yet, it's still supposedly on track for a US release. The set is out there, just a matter of time. I'm not loving the price point in the Korean market ~21K USD, but I'm pretty sure LG won't be that dumb to price themselves out of the market. You could get the Sony 1000ES 4K front projector for that much and I'd much rather have that myself.

So anyway, all we have to do now is wait and see.
post #84 of 115
Like you said, the 84LM9600 is definitely NOT vaporware! 84 units are being made available this month in Korea, with the rest of the world getting the full production model supposedly by the end of the year. I really hope this TV does get a North American release by November at a price point under $15K.
post #85 of 115
While looking around the net for info on the 84LM9600, I ran across a seller on eBay who has one listed for an outrageous price of $33,000!!!! But in his listing there were some specs that show the weight of the TV and the dimensions. I used the snapshot feature on my phone of the specs portion that I thought you all would find useful.

see my xbr80 anticipation thread. $30k street price...........
post #89 of 115
Looks like 4K direct view LCD is starting to happen, but at unrealistic prices. The newly announced Sony 80" 4K XBR8 at $30,000 makes the LG 84" 4K seem like a bargain at $20,000. Most likely it will take Sharp to introduce and affordable 60-80" 4K solution, if they manage to assure investment from the Japanese government or Apple to keep them afloat. Reminds me of GM losing billions every quarter until the government bailout. I think Sharp can eventually turn it around.

Great news!!!! It looks like the 84" LG will be available in the US by November!biggrin.gif Now to only know how much it will be. I really hope under $15K.
