Thanks for the great review!! I'm kinda bummed that I wasted so much money on my 2012 Samsung's, because I was told before i bought them, that they will be able to be upgraded to having an even "better" picture quality if I bought some kit in 2013 that's now on Amazon for $400!. and now I hear that Samsung confirmed that this "Evolution kit" will "NOT" improve the picture, and is now being called the "Smart Evolution kit" and has nothing to do with picture quality.
But I've also been hearing that the new 2013 "Samsung F8500" plasma will be able to be upgraded next year to have an even "better" picture quality next year. I was all set on buying the Panasonic this year, but not if the new Samsung's picture quality can be upgraded to and even "better" picture. i mean, the way some are making it sound, that next year, the F8500 can evolve into a "4k plasma" lol!
Darn it! Why can't Panasonic come out with some future kit like this that can make it evolve each year for the next 5-7 years with the new technology? I don't know what to buy now. What I do know is that, $400 is a lot of money to have to spend every year for this "Smart Evolution kit" the Samsung's have. I'm just confused
I also heard that Samsung's using "PenTile" displays on some of their models. I wonder which ones? I most definitely do "NOT" want one of those, and glad the Panasonic's don't use this type of display.
