A TV should pop - colors , whites , hockey , football, fiery explosions from Marvel Blu Rays, Capiche?
you should realize that countering the opinions of 5 EXPERTS with the opinion of random football fans who've possibly been drinking makes about as much sense as the anti-vaxxers saying doctors don't know what they're talking about but that random person on the internet who heard something from a friend that once read an article in a medical journal does...
there is nothing wrong with YOU preferring a brighter image. but there is EVERYTHING wrong with you assuming YOUR tastes represent scientific truth.
the FACT is, plasma can display a picture that is more accurate than lcd does. this is measureable, repeatable, and supported by nearly all the EXPERTS in the field. still doesn't mean YOU have to like it, it just means you have to ACCEPT it. as far as 'pop' goes, i find the 10000:1 to 40000:1 ansi contrast ratios of plasma to have a heck of a lot more 'pop' than the 500:1 to 2000:1 CR's of typical lcd's, but again, that's OPINION, and i can accept yours, as long as you present it as such, and not fact.
fwiw, my eyes must be very different than yours, because i find many plasma televisions to be too bright out of the box. i went through a lot of work, eventually having to adjust voltages in order to tame the brightness on my f8500. i find it the opposite, i am unable to watch tv's that are super bright unless i crank up the ambient lighting. i have to go out of my way to make sure windows are open, it's not cloudy, or i have the multitude of lights in the living room at full blast. the lcd in my bedroom has the backlight set to 6 out of 20. anything over 10 gives me headaches
and this STILL doesn't have anything to do with '4k'... 4k is nice, just needs more options for display tech displaying it
