A few thoughts on this running thread --
Would like to see W7 panel only with no visible speaker.
Also wanted: 1000+ nitts, a headphone jack
HDMI 2.1 or 120fps is a 'want' item not a 'need' item. I for one don’t want or need it, as I don’t want my movies to look like soap opera.
Sony A1E is out of the question for me due to lack of a perpendicular stand and wall-mounting it is a pain.
Final verdict: Keep my 5-y.o. Panasonic Plasma and buy a 65" C7 for $1k in a few years.
