Pffff. I can just sit 2 inches away from my current TV.

My wife and I bought this after selling our daughter Amanda into white slavery. We actually got a refurbished. It's missing the remote, but oh well-- for $10K off, I can afford a universal, right? The picture is amazing. I've never seen the world with such clarity.

Amanda, if you're reading this, hang in there, honey! We'll see you in a year.

I just wanted to add an addendum to my review. Since posting it, we have received a flood of responses. People have said some pretty hurtful things--even questioning our values. Let me assure you, this was not an easy decision to make, and we made it as a family. Obviously, it's very personal. But in light of all the second-guessing, I wanted to explain our thinking.

First and foremost, screen size. I really think you can't go too big. 85" may seem huge, but you get used to it fast. Second, resolution. Is 4K overkill? Please, that's what they said about 1080P! More dots = better. Period. And as far as this being a $40,000 "dumb" TV, people need to re-read my initial post: WE BOUGHT IT REFURBISHED. It was only $30,000.

Some of you may think I'm avoiding the "elephant in the room"-the real reason why this was such a heart-wrenching choice. So let's just get it out there. Yes, the 120 Hz refresh rate is a disappointment, especially on a 4K. But life is full of compromises. And frankly, we hardly notice. All in all, no regrets.

P.S., as for our daughter, NO ONE has the right to question our parenting. Totally out of bounds. Amanda was going into 7th grade, so it was going to be a transitional year anyway. Now she gets to see the world. How many kids her age get to go to Bahrain? I sure as heck didn't, but you don't hear me screaming "child abuse." Bottom line: MYOB! Seriously.

There's a lot of carping here about the price. $40,000 is indeed a fair whack of change for a television but on the other hand I spent almost twice that on my Thai mail order bride. My bride didn't come with an on/off switch and nor does she hold up at viewing distances of under 5 feet so I ask which one was the bargain? The sex is better with the Samsung too.

Convertible G4
By Clay Leon - November 28, 2013
With the $5000 discount provided by Amazon, I couldn't help but buy 10 of these bad boys. I had my servants mount them to the ceiling of my G4 jet and wired GoPro cameras to the roof. Now it's like I'm flying in a convertible G4. Get on my level. BALLING OUT OF CONTROL!

We got this beauty to replace the bridge's main viewscreen after the last time Sulu traded paint with the Excelsior. And thanks to Spock's idea to gaffer tape the remote to my left-hand armrest on the Captain's chair I can now "mute" Khan whenever he starts ranting about Antares Maelstroms and perdition's flames and what not.....

Those reviews are hilarious.

I hate you for alerting me to this. I've been splurging lately and need to be better at showing some restraint!

I've got a 70 inch now, and I have loved the jump in size so much, now I'm really really tempted to go for an extremely huge screen.

Maybe one of those 100 or 110 inch flatscreens...
