Haha, I met Nishioka last week too at the Toshiba briefing. Really nice guy, knows his stuff, but if he really cares about PQ he'll use VA not IPS panel.  :P

Warmest regards
Vincent

I know, but you also have to take business side into account.
Passive 3D got better marketing momentum, and LG may have thrown a good discount on OEM panels. ;)
We don't know how big was their budget, and what did they ultimately try to achieve with target audience.

I guess, now we all know what happens to companies, which stick to PQ exclusively, aren't we? ;D
...Sorry, Japanese P-named ones. :'(

Well... It's not that impressive for local-dimming set, sadly.

I can't understand how it got an 8/10 ??? Those black-levels seem terrible. Also, the rest wasn't exactly very competitive? TBH, it seemed like a shite TV to me... Wouldn't want to see a which got a 2-5 out of 10 from there then :huh:

I think Toshiba is quitting the market in 2015 or at least it will be the last year in TVs if it fails like it did until now.
