Or we just prefer LCD and are not close-minded like you..... I honestly love my F9000, yes it is not perfect but at a cost/performance ratio it is sitting just nicely. I prefer output of LCD vs plasma and the black levels are getting closer, under my normal viewing conditions it suits us just fine - the Samsung UHD sets are not this horrible abomination lol (clouding/flash lighting etc normally attributed to LCD edge-lit sets is extremely minimal here). And 4K material looks superb, great detail clarity on top of a top performing LCD set which can accurately reproduce colors, great black levels, etc. I came to the realization that OLED was not going to happen any time soon and 4K is going to be here for a while, that and I was not going to be able to afford any type of quality OLED set for at least 10-12 years.
I think that the problem is that people will make judgments based on the lowest common denominator, of course I would not consider any LCD set for purchase that is not a flagship model series from any of the manufacturers.... Truth is, the flagship models should actually be the baseline, instead they go backwards and for lower end sets they become crippled and perpetuate the general public being happy with s*** LCD. I cringe whenever anyone I know says they bought a Vizio, someone we know bought a 50" Vizio and said it was awesome, went over and it looked like it was 720p (and they sat < 6 feet, ACK!). Then people come to our house (we've had various Samsung 8000 series LCD sets over the years) and they realize there is a drawback when you flock out on black friday or any of those sales when the big stores peddle their crappy TV's off.
Sorry for my rant everyone. Just sick of Artwood, you've just been rubbing me the wrong way and NO I am NOT a salesperson. I just have my own preferences (might be hard for you to think that people can have different likes or dislikes from you). There is no perfect TV tech right now, even reference sets. There are drawbacks on every tech and will be until OLED comes to fruition (after they figure out longevity, production issues). Plasma - great PQ, but not good power consumption and brightness/white level usually, LCD - great PQ, but black levels not on par with plasma.
Artwood, I expect you will throw back a rant but I am done reading this thread now. I just couldn't stand your attitude.
Sorry again to everyone else, just needed to vent.... back to your normal business :-)
