    Are there any new 4K Tvs that do 3D as well? I like to continue watching my 3D Blu-rays...

    Last year's B6 is a most popular OLED from LG, but C6 adds to it support for 3D.

    Sony and Samsung have seemingly dropped 3D, which is a shame.

    Everyone has dropped 3D. Even LG with their new TVs. 3D is dead. FAIL.

    Agreed, 3D is dead. It's because people hate having things on their face unless its for extreme and intense pleasure.

    I thought it might live on because the selling price differential was so small compared to non-3D sets, guess not.

    I don't understand. If the monitor is SDR, it will be fed an SDR signal so the colour gamut will still be the same as any other SDR display - i.e. 8 bit colour.

    I assumed Monitor in the professional mastering video sense?
    Do you mean PC Monitor? I assume a pc monitor is not bound by broadcast standards as much so could have higher colour gamut already for thoes in design and such?

    A 2nd pretty great review of the TCL 55"

    http://referencehometheater.com/review/tcl-p-series-uhd-tv-review/

    The Chinese coming hard!

    Now my only issue is should I get the 55" "soon" whenever it ships, or wait for the 65, which is supposed to MRSP for 1k but hopefully I could get it cheaper? I still would prefer to go larger than my current TV. But, hate to wait, the 65 may not be as good, etc.

    Supposedly they may ship as early as June 5 so i may have to decide about my preorder soonrer than later.

    If people catch on to this IMO it should dominate the market. appears to be nearly as good as MUCH pricier Sony and Samsung sets.

    Price sounds great but wary of the Chinese brands.

    They used to implant spyware into picture frames years ago and more recently some of the smart phones had suspicious software too.

    US govt. also barred the use of Huawei routers, IIRC, due to security concerns.

    I recently upgraded to a 55X900E from a Sony W900A (19ms input lag). I was worried that the X900E would be too laggy, but it was only slightly a bit laggier and it took me about an hour to adapt.... maybe I'm just not sensitive to input lag.

    I'm not gonna worry about that on a TV...

    Generally I think "privacy concerns" are overrated. That ship kinda sailed. At this point we kind of just have to accept large corporations have all our data, IMO. It's not the end of the world, clearly.

    A good example is the voice assistants like echo. Probably a privacy nightmare. i choose to overlook it and use them anyway.

    That said I wouldn't buy a Lenovo laptop, after reading they had spyware installed on them some years ago...

    I haven't bothered to even connect my consumer electronics to my network. I know Samsung and Vizio TVs have a rep. for ads and intrusive things like logging your watching and recording you via the mic.

    But with these 4K TVs, it may be one of the easiest way to get streaming 4K and HDR content, because there aren't too many set top boxes with 4K HDR support yet. I hear Nvidia Shield but that's $200 and you're paying for gaming capabilities that you may not want or use.

    I know privacy is a problem with connected devices these days but I see no reason not to try to minimize intrusive devices when possible.

    A smart TV is basically a computer with zero security that you connect your devices too. When you connect two devices together with HDMI, that connection includes an Ethernet bridge. Malware injection over I/O is how many devices become compromised.

    Yeah, mine is the winner of the budget line. I have the 43" one. They had a good piece of advice under "Settings": "The 'Clearness' setting will make the backlight flash, producing a clearer image but reducing the brightness of the TV. This can be useful to clear motion while playing video games without increasing the input lag." I just upped the brightness and things looks quite sharp when gaming. And the scaling is also nice. http://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/sony/x800d/settings

    Well, if TV makers do not want to take my money they don't have to. Guess I'll stick with my plasma....

    I think the angle was the TV being the vector of attack not the TV being the target. But hell, it's only a matter of time!
