It's probably safe to assume that the $10,000 price points we're seeing will drop down over the next several years. How much? Perhaps half...maybe more. It really depends on the maturation of the technologies involved and new market competition. As I mentioned, Sharp and Vizio will should have reference TVs available next year....and the four manufacturers present at this year's Shootout will begin to trickle down today's cutting-edge tech into their TV lines.

Certainly exciting times. This time next year, HDR will be a factor (with both television playback capability and the beginnings of content) and you can bet money that more than just a few sets will have HDR capability.

Here's the good news: your 1080p set is still capable of producing an amazing picture. So, while you're waiting, your eyes can still enjoy excellent quality!

Agreed. Last year's Samsung model (F8500) would still be a great buy (if you can find it).

Edit, to be in sync with AVS Forum I removed the calibration reports. We'll publish them at the same tome tomorrow. Sorry for the one day delay.
I got to see them before removal. Nice to have nothing to do but read the forums. Sometimes it pays off just like this time.

Re: LG Wins the 2015 Value Electronics Television Shootout

One spec I would like to see included in 4K TV evaluations is how well these TVs handle up scaling. Since it will be quite a while before there are 4K broadcasts, I think this is a very important factor.

I'm just sayin'.

Re: LG Wins the 2015 Value Electronics Television Shootout

mattmc61, good suggestion! We did test up-scaling on all of the TVs and they all did an equally excellent job scaling 1080 to 2160. We did discuss the up-scaling at some of the 2015 TV Shootouts, but I am sorry we did not have the time demonstrate the scaling.
