77" way to small. Call me when we hit 100" for under 10K

My Lucky Goldstar has dead pixels lol. Seems to be a trend with them. Would hate to have 1cmx1cm black spots on one of these.

I was in Auckland for this event (thanks LG) at the Skycity. Basically it started with some drinks downstairs then everyone moved to the top of the tower. Also impressive was the new Hybrid TV with both terrestrial and satellite Freeview receivers in the same TV box.

Here are some photos from the event:









It's incredibly thin (the sideways photo was an attempt to show that) and beautiful picture. Below are some photos from the promotional USB:

Around 400" for the average screen.

Lucky bugger!

So was the TV that this thread is about pretty good?

freitasm: Pretty impressive all right.


You'd hope so, for that kind of moolah. I wonder if Kim.Com has one on order yet?

It must the world's largest curved TV available for sale.

This is because at the last CES in Las Vegas I saw this 105" curved TV from Samsung.



But it must be a technology preview only since we were not allowed to get close to it

Sorry about the image quality but it's a cap from a video I took of the TV. Now that is impressive and negates the need for any projector.





Staying in Wellington. Check out my AirBnB in the Wellington CBD.  https://www.airbnb.co.nz/rooms/32019730  Mention GZ to get a 10% discount

That's what I'm waiting for, 100" in a TV at an affordable price. That's the day I'll give up my projector. Not sold on curved screens though, seems like a bit of a gimmick.

Don't give up your projector. It would be pretty hard to hide one of those puppies away when not in use. Mind you if you are going to drop that kind of moolah on a display then the chances are you are going to want to show it off not hide it away, even when it's not turned on.

As an aside, only 15 years ago a 40 inch SD plasma was about $30K. Now you can pick up something similar for pocket change. OLED will hit a sweet spot for me when I can pick up a 50 inch 4K set for about $2-3000.

Any flicker of the image on them at all? I'm not convinced on curved either. Would pick up more reflections from the sides I would expect.
