well, while we wait, im happy with SUHD, at least i can watch it now, for half the price and only marginal differences
im offering a real world experience with regard to how an OLED looked after viewing an SUHD for a period of time (it was even more pronounced when i went back and had another look at the SONY FHD 65X850, which looked the best HD at the time) ... i think somebody asked me for a review of the Sammy, (best i can do in real terms)
mileages will vary, and theory and on paper specs dont always tell the real story
oh hell no, sounds like something the Panasonic salesman tried to tell me as well, different backlighting resulting in marginal colour gamut
its very chunky, huge bezel (aesthetics play a part as well)
peak brightness:1310 cd/m
input lag: 38ms
viewing angle: 46 deg
scaling : good
peak brightness: 1460 cd/m
input lag: 21ms
viewing angle : 60 deg
...not necessarily "better" in some regards
As far as i have seen the best 65" LCD you can buy in Ozz is the Panasonic DX900U.Most accurate colour and a better backlighting system than the Samsung SUHD.It was released a few months ago with what seemed like a very high price and now goes on the JB website for $3998.The 65" LG B6 OLED was released a couple of weeks ago so lets see how low it can go in a couple of months.A lot lower than $7.5k i can guarntee but how much lower we'll have to wait and see.
There is a reason why TV stations don't switch off the SD version of their primary channel. There are a large number of set top boxes that either cannot receive the FTA HD channels. If the SD versions of the primary channels were to disappear, those viewers would no longer be able to view or record those channels, and would have to use another STB or a digital TV.
Those boxes are from Foxtel. While newer boxes can receive HD, older ones can't. While Foxtel could replace the old boxes with newer ones, that would cost them or their customers money.
