Re: NEW Sony Financing Card backed by GE?

@enharu

 

I heard about those OLED TVs late last year. They are suppose to be a lot thinner due to the fact that they don't require backlighting like the LED TVs that are on the market right now. I felt a little envious since I had just bought a new TV (Samsung LED TV) early last year and heard about this new technology. Maybe in a couple years to replace the TV in my living room :smileyhappy:

The LED is such a step up from that DLP it replaced- I can't believe it took me that long.

@Lexie yeah it would be nice if your first auto cli jumps it to $6000. With that CL you will have more options at SONY.

Yeah, definitely a good call! Last time I saw a DLP was back when Circuit City was still in business. I had a plasma from Panasonic prior to the LED. My parents inherited it and it still works like a charm, although only a 720p.

I wasn't thinking about replacing my hunchback Toshiba but that 0% APR ( getting it back on topic) was too enticing.

OLED TVs are really nice. They can be as thick as a piece of paper if the processors and other internals are placed elsewhere (highest end Samsung TVs are generally designed this way). However because there are so limited on the market, it's hard to tell how good or bad they are. Picture quality wise OLED is supposed to be way better than anything else, but traditional OLED has the problem of blue diode dying too quickly in OLED TVs as compared to LEDs. Not sure if Samsung or any of those manufacturers has fixed this problem yet, but I'm sure the reputable manufactuers will have some solution of some sort rather than to release a half baked product.

 

Samsung and other manufacturers showed off some really nice TVs at CES this year. There's a 65 inch 4K OLED TV that will retail for approx 40k USD. LG has some OLED TVs that can be ordered via special order (Asia region only for now) as well and so far they're backordered for a few months.

 

TVs are definitely changing a lot in the near future. The prices should go down nicely in the next couple of years so there's no real rush to get them, since none of the broadcasters or even content in bluray are in 4K resolution yet. The PlayStation 4 is supposedly going to be able to support 4K resolution.

Re: NEW Sony Financing Card backed by GE?

I don't think they'll be on some crazy fire sales as the lower end TVs are usually at the end of each year. Only because the cost price is still so high, and so little quanitites are being made. Some of the models can only be obtained through special orders.

 

Next year holiday season........definitely though! :smileyvery-happy: Looking forward to it.
