Sooner than later i am planning to purchase an UHD set but i am sure going to wait until proper reviews are done by professionals not afraid to ruffle some feathers, and besides this whole HDMI 1.4 versus HDMI 2.0 version merits some consideration when spending over $5,000.00 for a TV set.
Case in point : recently one reviewer at the magazine pointed out the fact that in his many years of testing many/many LCD sets he cannot remember seeing a single one that could display a full white onscreen test pattern that did not show even the tinniest amount of magenta or green shading at one of the corners, left or right side of screen, at the center, surrounding the center area, etc.
I have the LG LV9500 which was LG'S first LED NANO FULL ARRAY LOCAL DIMING TV for 2013.This TV has 2300 led's and 280 zones.
The difference between the LV 9500 versus the LM 9600 which Home Theater reported on was LV 9500 active 3D and LM 9600 Passive 3D and when the LM 9600 came out they used less LED'S and Zones.
If you can go onto the LV 9500 Forum one person had both the LG LV9500 and LM9600 and he stated the LV 950 was better with local diming.
I think LG wants to make the best 4K TV'S and keep them close as possible to OLED TV'S in viewing quality. Price will be a big factor for most people and 4K LCD has the advantage.
I just read that in china 4K panels are reaching the price point of 1080p panels.
Ultra HD TV pricing in China expected to drop to that of Full HD units by October
