Uhhhh.....you are. You seem upset that we kuro owners want something that's better than what was released.........5 years ago.
I'm pretty sure they exist because people who are really insecure feel the need to come out and get made secure by the same 10-20 people nodding and glad-handing about about their orphan product from a company that doesn't make TVs anymore. I mean let's get real a second. We just had CES. Myself and many other people filed posts from there about what was new. This thread actually contributes nothing to the dialog about what is new. It really doesn't. It's basically a re-post of a whine. "I want. I want. I want."
We all know what's actually coming, You may not like that. But your endless blathering (oh, and to be clear, that's a generic "you", not a comment directed at anyone) about some TV you can't buy anymore isn't going to make a single manufacturer build a single TV they weren't already planning on buying.
What a ridiculous assumption. You're letting your anger make up wild accusations about kuro owners. I assure you you are wrong.
And yes we did just have CES. Just like the many other CES's we've had since the kuro released. Yes we know what's coming, just like we knew what was coming every year since the kuro released. So where is the display that clearly, undoubtedly exceeds the kuro? Take your time, i'll give you a minute.
Interesting, those Samsung 40" LCDs were flat-out terrible at pretty much everything. Then you bought a TV that is pretty much great at everything. So you have high standards about having more or less no standards. I respect the move to the Penthouse. TVs typically get replaced every 8 years. Maybe you should just sit tight.
The samsung was my first HDTV. I didn't know anything about PQ aspects like contrast ratio, color, motion etc. It wasn't until i saw a kuro did i immediately have some idea about what those things ment, and why people on AVS keep mentioning them, and how they improve PQ.
I've seen plenty other TV's while i had (and still have and use) my samsung. None stood out so obviously like the kuro.
Here's the thing. There is no chance the Kuro threads will stop. Even if the ZT60 or F8500 is clearly better there will be threads. "It's about time something finally (slightly) exceeds the Kuro". "Does the F8500 really outdo the Kuro?" "I can't believe it took 5 years to barely beat the Kuro". There will be threads.
No there won't be. If the the ZT60 and F8500 is clearly superior to kuro, most owners will be happy to upgrade to the bigger sizes. Who doesn't want a 65" kuro? I would rather 70"+ but still.
There will be no need for threads like this if a manufacture would just take down the undying zombie that is the kuro. You gotta should it in the head!
You could simply stop reading or posting or them or telling people they are whining. It's just an idea.
Heh. Likewise for you?
What's going to be real funny when the kuro is finally beat is the amount of "the king in dead" threads. Oh boy. I can't wait for those. This place is going to get interesting.
