Although it seems like ages ago, CES was the opportunity for TV companies to showcase their finest products. Of course, most of these products were prototypes and won't be available for a long time. It is depressing knowing that we are going to have to wait months and months (and max out a credit card) in order to afford one.
But that isn't the point I wanted to make. I noticed that one of the major "themes" this year was to "make it thin". At this point in my life, I don't see the need why designers are focused more on size than picture quality. I assume it is what drives most consumers to buy a specific TV, so I can understand that. I would rather sacrifice size for quality, but recently a few companies have abandoned their DLP market. I was hoping to see at least a couple manufacturers to display bigger, but more top-notch quality displays.
Personally, I would rather buy a TV 2 feet thick if it gave a better picture. (Of course the size of a room is a factor, but I would find the space) Since it is bigger it could be cheaper because the need to micro-size parts is not needed.
So, what do you prefer? The worlds thinnest TV? The best picture regardless?
