We're discussing a new TV which isn't even available. Both it and RedRay should be available around the same time; 4K content is available and accumulating.

The same arguments were had re: HDTV and BluRay, both appeared about the same time, sufficient content soon followed, and now they're the norm.

The funniest part here is the suggestion that Samsung makes good TVs. In fact they do not.

Their planned obsolescence is short, the quality is not there, and really the screens aren't that great.

Makes me happy because I'll never buy any of their garbage that carries a Samsung logo.

Oh, really now? All this time I thought their high end TVs are fairly well regarded.

How do you plan obsolescence in a TV? As long as it turns on and you can hook things up to it, it'll basically last as long as the LED backlights keep burning.

This is one thing I can't stand about some certain overly enthusiastic tech people. I'm sure some of you had nothing but great things to say about Samsung and their products up until the point they became competitors with Apple. Now they're "garbage". It's like in your mind you're only allowed to like one company. Anything else has to fall short otherwise you feel like you're not doing your due for the good of the company.

What does that have to do with anything I wrote? Maybe you should let the person I responded to reply instead?

Makes a lot of sense

Do you hate the parts inside your iPhone that are made by Samsung. Oh what a quandary!
This gets a bit old. Can you tell me what part of my iphone5 is made by Samsung. I can think of the processor, but it's designed by Apple and Samsung's only contracted to manufacture it. The screen, which is of utmost importance to me, is made by LG. The camera is from Sony. The design of the hardware is obviously made by Apple itself. SO please enlighten me on what part of my iphne5 is made by Samsung.

And I hate Samsung too.

Difference being there was a federally mandated broadcast standard for HDTV. No such standard exist for 4k and until that happens it will be a niche product even with RedRay/ect.

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it, however the tree in one promo references an Organic object as in OLED or Transparent display and the other AD with all the LCD/LED TV are heading to see the 4K TV showcased.

Samsung references

The Still ad looks like a picture within a picture. Could there be some kind of new PIP function? Just throwing it out there

The new shape makes a lot of sense...

Finally a TV that takes into account how lazy we are. You can watch it laying on your side.

It's a portrait television for all those portrait videos smart phone owners insist on taking. Sigh!

They make very good tvs, especially Plasma. I think you have Apple blindness. It's very common on here.

It may be unprecedented in shape, but I do agree with Jim Dalrymple in that I do not find it very aesthetically appealing: http://www.engadget.com/2013/01/07/s...tra-hd-UN85S9/

Well, it looks like Samsung's new TV did not really live up to the hype.
If 3D did not make it due to the 3D goggles, do they really think wearing goggles and headphones to watch two different channels at the same time will take off? It also would require cable or satellite boxes to support this.
Given that there are countless different providers in different countries this is not likely to happen in the near future.
There is a good reason Apple's TV is not out yet, and there is a chance it never will.
