[QUOTE=Dartman;2672734]You know the PC saying, those on the cutting edge bleed a lot. The early adopters will get to pay to play and be first and slowly the price will come down as they feel like they’ve recovered their costs and the develop better ways to make them cheaper.
I was given a 42" LED Sony for Christmas, and considering the normal tech it uses with nothing special added I’m surprised how good the black levels and viewing angle actually is. I can live with it and it’s quite nice looking and watchable and I would have preferred a local dimming or a plasma if I was buying it myself. I hope the prices come down quickly and we all can get OLED goodness with it’s excellent black levels and viewing angles and things.
I came from a 34" CRT set that had pretty much excellent everything, just small and HEAVY so always looking for something affordable that can match the quality that set provided. For 10k it’s going to be a long wait for most of us to buy one of those new sets.[/QUOTE]
The TV I watch most is a 36" Sony CRT.
It is indeed a heavy bastard.
I have stated to several friends about how I intend to get it out of where it is when I get any kind of flat replacement.
In it’s current location it’s 48" off of the floor…
