Fine Pioneer plasma aside, I’m with Tony – it’s too early in the game for me. I’m hoping my Pioneer holds out long enough for OLED to become plentiful and reasonably priced. And for the hardware manufacturers to get all the HDMI issues ironed out – I’m still in “component video land.” Regards, Wayne
Ahhhhhh, I see.

I was at Best Buy today looking for a movie and looked at the LG 65" OLED. It's nice but if money weren't a factor I prefer the 75" Sony 940D. Both have stunning pictures but to my eyes that Sony is a thing of beauty!

So you think there are more plasmas out there than LCD/LED displays? I'd say it's the other way around and not even close. As far as waiting for Oppo to release a 4K player I'm right there with you. I just need to decide between that and the PS4K.
No, what I’m saying is people that care too much about Video have Plasma’s. I know it’s a small sample but you can see from the posts above that both Tony and Wayne are rocking Plasma’s and they both are not thinking about upgrading until they die (TV that is ). Whereas most of my friends that like watching tv and Movies are going out and getting “4K” tv’s and loving it.

Nothing wrong with upgrading now to “4K” but I think the potential in UHD/HDR/WCG is so high that those that are in the know are not jumping to “4K” just yet unless they have to.

Take this with a grain of salt but a shootout was just done with those two displays. Plus the TV's at best buy are all running Vivid mode which is the last mode you want your tv to be in at home but it makes them pop on the showroom floor.

Re: 4K Movie Discussion

I am not an early adapter like some are. We have a 4k UHK Samsung, and a Yamaha 4k (capable) AVR in our living room, but in the HT we only have a 4k AVP, and a 1080p projector. Since I rip all my BRs to the NAS (I want the movies on our NAS to be playable on all of our TVs), and our HT is not 4k ready... I don't anticipate changing to a 4k projector for at least another year or 2.

The Sony was in standard mode. I wasn't able to access the G6's settings menu. Don't get me wrong the LG looked great but my eyes still preferred the Sony's picture. Add in the cost difference and you're getting some good value as well.

HDR/WCG?

All in all, doesn't sound like enough of an improvement to make me give up my Pioneer Plasmas!

Regards,
Wayne A. Pflughaupt


This year's TV shootout included a Kuro plasma... For 1080p material, the Kuro looked pretty good when compared to modern flagship TVs. But, when the flagship TVs were fed the same material in 4K HDR/WCG... It made the Kuro look pitifully antiquated.

Right now, I wouldn't upgrade for just extra pixels. But if you plan on watching material with HDR/WCG (and your chosen TV actually can display HDR/WCG to consortium standards)... Then it's 100% worth the jump...

I've yet to get rid of my 1080p plasmas... But after seeing the OLED LG in action, I'm thinking it's time. It's truly a revolutionary step forward.

Just an opinion of course... But I think you'd be hard pressed to find a TV shootout attendee that would echo those sentiments.

Re: 4K Movie Discussion

Might be a gotta see it to believe it type of thing. It's almost as if the very crowd that should embrace advances in technology disregard it as snake oil. No regrets here with the upgrade.

Re: 4K Movie Discussion

In the TV shootout write-up I detailed some of the TV oriented snake oil from the last 5 years or so... So much of it just force fed to consumers, so it's really easy to see why people might be reluctant.

4K alone, in my opinion, is akin to a gimmick for typical screen sizes (40-60 in). But (not to beat a dead horse), WCG and HDR are truly game changers... I saw an HDR demo on JVC's current PJs last year at CEDIA that involved showing a light grey sky. In normal mode, they sky looked hazy/light grey. But with HDR engaged, the sky lit up with all kinds ripples, lines, and small details. Stunning. And that was on a projector. The stuff that OLED and the better LCDs can pull off is even more astounding.
