    Lots of 4k options that have no content other than upscaled 1080p and a $10k+ price tag, so nothing for me so far.

    Not me either. BUT I am interested in the new A/V receivers and Blu-ray players.

    Cool! Hopefully someone else is tracking those announcements, I only have enough interest in the displays and the few gaming announcements to give any kind of rollup on those...

    I'm wondering if Panasonic thinks the "sumo class" (70"+) is going to be dead for the next two years. Seriously... 80" LCD(which looks like crap) for $9000... 55" OLED(which, boys and girls that are Best Buy shoppers, is not an "evolution of LCD") for $12,000... Panny sitting on the bleachers thinking the sumo class is going to be dead? Personally, if I spent $9000 in 2012 and by 2014 I could have spent $9000 on a OLED.... I'd be pissed.

    Agreed Sam, I have no clue who will buy those other than celebrities and people with more money than sense. There simply is no content to make them viable anyway. I intend to buy a 4k projector eventually, and am leery of spending real dough on a 1080p one, but I'm not going to jump on 4k before the infrastructure is really ready. OP updated with Samsung and Sony announcements.

    I found this interesting: "The 3D TV won its tortured, protracted war — you can buy a 3D TV anywhere and at any time — and nobody could care less." http://www.theverge.com/2013/1/8/3852452/death-of-3d

    Highlights for me were the VT60 announcement (since VT50's will be cheaper now!) - and the new Sony content streaming from any iOS or Android device to their new Blu-Ray players. http://reviews.cnet.com/blu-ray-players/sony-bdp-s3100/4505-9991_7-35566992.html
