    Yep, G and W. Sony has the A1E in 77 too

    Basically the new red sub pixel is to help burn in and image retention. Not that it’s huge in my book. The 75-100 nits the 18 panels are brighter isn’t huge for specular highlights either. But it’s $9000!!! Lol.

    REALLY hard to consider OLED at those prices, when Way More Than Good Enough LCDs are out there for a fraction of the price.

    Sorry, but OLEDs are remaining niche. And might never live up to their potential.

    And OLET technology is still out there.

    It’ll be years before we see it, if ever.

    I'm just doing my civic duty to delay any Big TV Purchase decision of yours, navychop, by giving you even more reasons to not buy now.

    Nine large is up in the DLP LASER projector price range (and perhaps more than some of us spent on our first new car).

    So the "it" that LG is bringing this year is mostly lighter wallets.

    If he waits too long, his eyes won't be able to discern what wins there might be.
