I think the reason that comments have become so off topic--and I believe allowed to be off topic--is so the thread can be locked.
And why would that be? Because the people behind the LCD tidal wave don't want people to know that their future TVs will be Chinese pieces of LCD subastandard trash.
People have gotten quite fond of buying names such as Sony, Panasonic, Toshiba, Sharp, etc.
I don't know that those same people will be enamored with the Hisense ilk.
I can't remember in TV history where overall picture quality has gone backwards as much as it has in the last two years.
Of course in the age of spin that fact can not be tolerated.
You know something is up when discussions veer into politics or smart phone screens or electricity usage.
Now I don't have a problem with any of those discussions but the fact that they're happening is because people around here like looking at Great TV pictures. and those great pictures are getting worse.
LCD with its many shortcomings will be the ONLY game in town--if you don't like its shortcomings TUFF--you just have to eat it no matter if you choke on it!
And I still haven't heard the reason why companies can build atmospheric priced AUDIO equipment--make money--and stay in business--but why that same feat is IMPOSSIBLE when it comes to TV? Why is that?
Do you think that maybe just maybe since the whole world has TV--and that TV because it is less fragmented than the Internet--that TV is a much better tool for brainwashing the public?
You know they STILL make turntables but you're telling me that continuing to make plasmas is IMPOSSIBLE? Really? Why?
They can make turntables that are much more expensive than OLEDs and sell them and make money but they can't do that with OLEDs. Why is that?
When such things as these don't make sense you know that the game is Rigged!
Do you miss those days when you could get relative quality 240Hz LCDs at Wal-mart but now you can't?
If "Quality crap LCD" can't be bought at Wal-mart anymore--and if they can't make money doing that then who can?--then what does that portend for TV picture quality? If the bottom level of quality is getting worse then you know that the top level of quality is sure to follow.
Looks like the game is rigged to me. Who will be the financial winners--the Chinese--but if that is true that means the whole rest of the world can't stop it?!!! Doesn't that sound rigged?
Stop the rigged New World Order of LCD!!!
You may bind me and execute me for not worshiping LCD--my last words will be FREEDOM!!! Looks like that word is being relegated to the movies!
P.S. LCDs small viewing angles are meant to break up the family!
