You were offered the kuro for free? And you said no? Man i wish i had your rep. You could of at least sold it to someone who needs it. But then you would've created another kuro monster on AVS right?
A little birdie. And really, I added more useful content to this thread than almost everyone else. I will tell you saprano (but only you!), that the where and when is TBD.
Well if you can find when and where i'll happily buy about 2. A 500m or 101, and another 151. Heh, you probably think i'm crazy. No, i just like quality. Something the kuro haters don't seem to understand.
There are countless threads where people do this every few months. It never ends. That's what is up with that.
rogo, why do you enter them???????????????????
To bash the egomaniac owners. The display is fine. The owners who don't feel the need to measure certain body parts every few months and post the results are also fine with me.
So you're basically trolling kuro owners? You see a kuro thread and it annoys you so much that it stops you from browsing AVS to enter it and bash the "egomaniac owners"
That's really smart. It's like walking by a house that's having a pajama party, that you clearly hate, and walking inside to tell everyone to stop wearing those damn pajamas and having these stupid partys.
Oh, and speaking of measuring, the Kuro was always too small for me. That's why I said no when I was offered one. I had a 50" TV and wasn't going to "upgrade" only to a 60". It took a few years more, but I finally got a 65". For all of you who think, "that makes no difference", you're more than entitled to that opinion. Just like you're entitled to your opinion that nothing on the market equals your Kuro. I respectfully disagree with you on both of those topics.
It's not the largest display, but in the 1500 cu ft room my 151 is in now where i sit about 7',8' away small doesn't come to my mind.
And nobody is saying that the kuro hasn't been equaled in someways. Maby that's where the tension comes from. There's plenty of kuro owners that said the Sharp equals the kuro (even D-Nice) but we don't want equal we something that's better. Why am i going to spend money on another TV when the one i have is already reference? Unless you want a bigger size there's no point.
And like you, there's no way i'm going from a 60" to a 70". It has to be 75" and up. I hope a 4K OLED display is available in that size in the next 5 years. I doubt it though. Until then i'm content with my "puny" 60" kuro.
Because Kuro owners never shut up. I know people with $150,000 cars who are much less obnoxious about them than Kuro owners on AVS Forum. Much much less.
I don't think kuro owners are obnoxious. It's the non owners that are acting like babies everytime the kuro is brought up. You people find your way into every kuro thread just to cry. Nothing we say is false. The praise it gets is warranted. People don't like that and frankly that's your fault.Edited by saprano - 1/25/13 at 7:55am
