In terms of aesthetics, gotta wonder what "speakers hidden in front" means. Personally, I think the current lineup is much too bulky looking compared to the sleeker pioneers and especially sleek panasonic industrial models.
In terms of picture quality, gotta love it that the 30,000 contrast is listed as NATIVE rather than dynamic. This may make it very competitive with the Kuros...we shall see.

Speaking only of the 800/850 series, they incorporate a new substrate glass formation and moving the MgO layer (dielectric layer) from above the cells to inside the cells. This creates much improved cell firing luminosity, cell cross talk, and does reduce power usage. This new design works just like Pioneer's crystal emissive layer.
From what I've been told, these improvement provide considerably more performance in daylight conditions. On the "theater lighting" side, the new design is less of an improvement but will place the minimum luminance level near the 0.009ftl level. The will definitely be "good enough" for the value minded customer......but it isn't 0.004ftl 1080p 8G Kuro level.....and God forbid the 9G Kuros.
