The problem is it is taking too long to get to that point.
All we have for the immediate future is 4L LCD that sucks. What's the point of 4K LCD if it isn't as good as the Sharp Elites?
LCD quality is going backwards! No Full Array dimming. All you get is edge lit crap!
Same old pathetic viewing angles.
LCD is for solitary people without friends who only pleasure themselves in the exact center spot!
There is no reason for 4K under 100 inches!
Look folks technology does sometimes march backwards! Go buy a 1975 automobile and see for yourself--do you dig its performance?
Think Quad was a joke? How many years did you have to wait for 5.1 surround?
OLED is like the picture phone at the world's fair in the sixties--not impossible to conceive--how many years did you have to wait for that to happen?
I don't think you'll see Samsung make any improvements to plasma--they'll quit making them and try to milk thousands and thousands for not ready for prime time OLED from AVS types who know how bad LCD sucks!
How much more cheap do you think the Chinese will be able to make LCD?
The real reason we'll have LCD that sucks isn't about "There's no market for TVs with great quality at a high price". People spend zillions for everything else in the world but you're telling me that NO ONE would do that for a TV?
Who believes that?
Follow the money! When Hollywood figures how they can make more money than they presently do IF people have better than Kuro type quality displays at home then that's when you'll see affordable long lasting reliable fantastic quality OLED appear.
Until then get ready for 4K LCD that sucks and OLED that sucks, too!
When plasma is axed off we'll be back at the days of the 1975 Corvette. How many years did it take for 1967 Corvette performance to return?
The real horror is that may be how many years we are saddled with sub plasma performance TV.
Civilization is in decline. People value twitter jabbering like infants on blasted phones and they also like music that sucks with MP3 type quality that sucks!
Music sucks so bad they don't even play it on MTV!!!
The next fiasco is going to be 4K COMPRESSION on satellite which still won't even equal true 1080p resolution on Blu-ray!
What amazes the most around here aren't the people who post in trying to support declines in technology--what surprises me the most are people here who KNOW the declines and are silent about them! Is there such a thing as a DE-enthusiast forum?
I hope AVS never becomes that and I hope OLED gets here sooner rather than later.
