I think you just have some bitterness towards LG for some reason
. I dunno, LG never said they were releasing the flats during the first quarter. They said the curved ones were coming first quarter and the flats "later in the year". Recently they said they are going to launch the flats at IFA. So I guess that is a little later then the rumored "August" date VE has claimed. If you recall, the curved models actually came out a week or two EARLY.
Where you keep coming up with your pricing is beyond me. Pre-order & MSRP pricing has always been for suckers and fools. You know what they say about fools and their money, right?
If memory serves me correctly, I believe Cleveland was discounting the curved models almost from day 1.
What problems are you talking about with the panels? Like I said, every professional review I've seen says its the greatest TV ever made
In reference to your thread title, the TV was NEVER going to be under $2K at launch... if you're going to be bitter that stuff you want is too expensive, you're gonna be bitter at a lot of companies
But hell, this TV was originally supposed to be $5K and now its going to be $3K before its even out. What is there to be bitter about?
