Why is Panasonic comparing their new TV to a 5 year old TV? Why is Samsung saying they might have a TV that finally "knocks the kuro off its perch"? Why does any company want that title anyway?????
I don't know why people see the kuros love as surprising. The picture is damn fumazing.
The kuro haters are just as annoying as the owners who keep talking about it. lol.
Totally lame quote, but its been said "to be the man, you have to beat the man" and so far the Kuro IS the man. It looks like that could change with the latest flagship models, but I think it is safe to say that even if they best the Kuro in every other category (color accuracy, motion, brightness,shadow detail, "smart" features, 3D, etc.) I just don't see anything this side of OLED topping it in mll, and thusly the hardcore Kuro fans are always going to refer to that as the crowning achievement. Personally, even if the Kuro was bested in EVERY category, I would point out that its doubtful that any tv will hold the crown for 5 YEARS, so even if it is bested, the bragging rights will still be there simply because of how long it took to beat it, and how short a time the new king will reign.
