Sounds good. We got the Samsung plasmas 50 and 59 for displays sent to us. Both seem to have issues with their component inputs. Will you be checking all input methods or just hdmi?
Good to hear. It just strikes me as odd that both displays would have the same issueRobert Zohn said:Thanks for bring up the issue and yes I'll check the component video inputs. Our PN51E8000 and PN51E6500 showroom demo display component video inputs work perfectly.
That's the nicest I've ever seen that put. Cudos to you sir.Robert Zohn said:Gregr, actually I believe Vizio makes a great TV and the value is excellent. But this Flat Panel HDTV Shootout is strictly limited to the very best flagship models from the premium manufacturers. At this moment I can't tell you the names of the premium TV manufacturers' who did not make the cut and will not even have their premium flagship display included in the Shootout.
At Sears, Walmart and Sam's Club you only see the low end entry level TVs, and some are exclusive to the retailer. Also the TVs in those stores are set to the store demo mode, which is the worst viewing mode. So I think that may be some of the reason you are not seeing as good a picture that you experience in your home with subdued ambient light and a TV that has been properly set-up.
If you put any of these panels on our Shootout wall and it would be embarrassing for the manufacturer.
Sorry no Vizio in this event. But it would be nice to see Vizio beat the pants off of many of the big boys entry to mid level displays.
I'll chime in here.Robert, I would like to know if OLED would have the same problems as regular LCD displays which has that "soap opera" effect. Does OLED produce the same film-like picture quality as plasma displays? Does OLED pretty much did away with all the problems that LCD displays (and plasmas for that matter) have?
