CNET and Consumer Reports Both Call 55" Samsung OLED HDTV "Best Ever" - Page 3

Absolutely zero reason why a curved screen cannot be wall mounted. None.

A flat mount can easily be fabricated within the chassis. This is done in thousands of applications in a myriad of genres.

These 2 may not be able but it's hardly a death knell for other curved screens if people- for "look at me!" reasons really want them.

In regards to specs blu-ray trounced HD-DVD, far superior bandwidth and more space, also more durable. In practice (having had both) blu-ray's were a lot more reliable for me as well (playing on a first gen blu-ray player compared to a 3rd gen HD-DVD player.

If OLED becomes main stream I seriously hope they get rid of image retention which is a major issue with plasmas.

Panasonic first 4K (Edge Lit LEDs) TVs will most likely be unveiled at the IFA 2013.

Plasma is dead only when LG and Samsung say it's dead. Note they also make LCD and now OLED televisions. Basic LCD picture quality is at stand still
edge lit was a step backwards and companies would rather put stuff on TV's. There can be good LCD's but just as people go remember Kuro's they'll so be going remember the Sharp Elites.

Like hybrid cars, vs. pure electric.

Yes the ELITE LCD... I can't understand however they never at least released one more after the original. Perhaps one with even more LED's and a fix for the Cyan issue as good as it was.

Although here in the UK the ELITE brand never (only US and Canada i think) was so never got to witness one or the plasma version personally. The high-end Samsung backlit LED's and the high end Sony was really as good as it got here from "consumer" grade products. As good as the Sony was it had clouding issues and if i remember rightly had obvious banding problems also.

I wonder if there will be an ELITE brand display tech in the future (OLED) or something else perhaps ?

Heh. People really think the Sharp LCD was something special? Non uniform picture, clouding, LCD digital look?

Whatever. A "low end" plasma like the ST60 easily has a better picture than the Sharp. And for significantly less money.

you do realize that HD-DVD would have released higher capacity storage don't you?...plus the 30GB capacity never really was a major drawback in 2007...nowadays with 3D is another story...online interactivity was also much better with HD-DVD

Please don't litter the thread with 6-year-old theoretical talking points. I loved HD DVD as much as the next red forever fanatic, but it's time to let it go. Java and Sony were the main drawbacks for me, but seriously, MS has proven they can be just as conniving and restrictive, and it can be argued they only halfheartedly backed HD DVD in their quest to compete with the PS3.

Seiki 4K: Great Black as the Bezel Panel, Cyan through the roof, Florescent Greens and Reds, and an overall abundance of Blue. All tamed with the iScan Duo, but there went the 4K! Also couldn't pass the S&M 2 Video Processing Motion Tests. Any setting on Brightness over 48, or Backlight over 60, demolished the PQ!. Had one, tried it, sent it back. Looking forward to a 4K 65" OLED with the connection factor straightened out. 2 other connectors in the running, that are superior to the HDMI 2.0 we're all waiting for! (More delays while this is sorted out?)
