    I'm thinking about getting the Samsung qn90a, since I don't want a oled.

    I'll just be thrilled if my Samsung Series 6 Smart TV at 1080i lasts for the remainder of my life. With a DVD collection of 300+, I've read many times that they won't play well further upconverted to 4K. Besides, I'm happy with Full HD. No real need to be able to see all the microscopic skin conditions of the stars up close and personal.

    Since there's no money in backwards compatibility I don't expect anyone to solve this issue. Another example of deliberate obsolescence. Upgrading my VHS tape collection to DVD was as much as I can tolerate in being forced to adopt the next latest, greatest consumer technology. Not to mention Blu-Ray has yielded to 4k format now. It never ends. :rolleyes:

    Though if someone out there creates a 4K television that can enhance the appearance of an upconverted DVD beyond 1080i I'd probably buy it eventually, especially given the declining number of 1080 resolution widescreen tvs available.

    I tend to just use stuff until it falls apart. Why? Because I'm freaking stubborn, that's why.

    That being said I did end up with a new monitor over Christmas. Previous one was simply too small, and I'm nearsighted, so it was causing me to lean forward a lot, messing up my back.

    Yeah, I know, TECHNICALLY a monitor probably aint a TV, but.... feh, it's all the same to me. It's a screen, it displays stuff. What more would I need?
