Did it not present at the show that they had some awesome OLED I saw on the wall, like 33K or was that another company. Confused now. I almost did plop down, not yet in my listing of the 80" Visio, but like most, we have a pass down for new every two years and I will just steal a 65 from the living room now. Save for the UHD myself.
Perhaps Vizio showed some type of prototype. Nevertheless, for 2014, they aren't bringing any OLED based TVs to market.

I was trying to check my history, I know it was a video and I probably am wrong. But it was 108" Ah, my email, I emailed who it was and said $33K and you offering a two year ( SAMSUNG, YES I WAS WRONG) warranty. The reply was one Year warranty. I referred her to their link. 33K, I want 5 years and squaretrade on top of that. Thank you for correcting Me, I will find it now....Thanks again!

Vizio certainly has scored big with me for longevity of their products. I still have my very 1st 32" LCD from Vizio purchased about 7 years ago doing time as a PC monitor. I wouldn't mind getting into a new Vizio +80" UHD set when the prices are more reasonable.

my vizio is about 4 years old and can't tell a difference from the day I bought it.

Re: Vizio Will Release a Reference Line of UHD-TVs, Kicks 3D to the Curb

I would be interested in how much it costs to implement 3d. From what I have read, the additional resolution removes some of the problems that affected 3d in HD sets. Increased brightness for one, resolution the other. 3d in a 4k set displays a HD (1920x1080) picture to each eye, thus eliminating one of the detractors that may have caused 3d to not be embraced by all. I am not a huge admirer of 3d, but 4K might be the technology that it needed to be something of first consideration instead of a new button to push.

What do you think?

Re: Vizio Will Release a Reference Line of UHD-TVs, Kicks 3D to the Curb

Agreed, also the curved ones supposedly will help that as well though I haven't seen one personally. Also for 3d depending on the type a higher refresh rate is very important. Some of the 4k displays have lower refresh rates than the traditional ones, more so in the PC panel market as they are using IPS panels instead of the newer TN ones that are brighter but have slower refresh rates so far. Which to me 3d gaming has more appeal than 3d movies. 60hz is the most common. Sadly you can't even get a decent 2550x1440 display without paying 750$ most are closer to 1,000$ not counting the cheap rejected b list panels out of Taiwan that have no warranty that continually sell on ebay.

As for the 4k tv's I have seen 240 as well as 120 I don't know enough about tv's to be honest to know why there is such a huge difference in refresh rates but one of my guess is no graphics card can output 4k at those high of rates anyway. I wonder if the 240 is just for scaling down 120 in 3d which makes more view able sense otherwise 240 seems like overkill.
