I've seen it posted somewhere that the contrast was 300:1 (I was hoping it'd be closer to the Panasonic plasma).


But I've not seen the set myself, and most reviews have sounded great. Perhaps the contrast is actually higher?


Anyone?

First, it was slated to arrive the first week of August.


Then, two to three weeks later.


Now, the first week of September.


I hope against hope this isn't the Samsung fLCD crap all over again.

I, more than you, hope the same.


I'll let you know!

Just call me a cockeyed optimist, but maybe RCA & Samsung are both hoping to get these truly ready for the market...?

Fine, LCH, that's a great reason for delay. But it means that they are either:


(1) Not getting enough yield to manufacture them or

(2) Are not getting enough performance to sell them for $5K and up.


Neither is a good sign for a technology in its infancy. If the LCOS needs to reach 3rd generation before being good (like plasma did), then I'll get a plasma now (albeit a smaller one), and get an LCOS later.
