on CN02 (don't know what it is). I wonder if the technology inferior to IPS or is it just this company in China making crappy panels? I am no lawyer so I won't get into the bates and switch thing.
I have been reading customer reviews on several televisions so I can get an idea of what others think before I purchase. I came across reviews indicating that many television brands use a "panel lottery" --which ultimately means not every television the brand makes uses the same type of panel in its class (LCD/LED/Plasma)? Long story short: They proceeded to mention something about an IPS panel opposed to a CN02 panel or a non-IPS panel. The brands they mentioned were Samsung and LG (Samsung UN40C6300 and LG 42LE5400). The TV they were looking at in the store had an IPS panel and when they purchased that same brand/model TV, they opened the box and found out their set had a CN02 panel.
1.) Is this common to observe one thing and then purchase another?
2.) Based off his review, he said it made a big difference in the picture quality between the two panels- Does it really make a noticeable difference that ultimately makes you return the product and re-evaluate what you are really looking for?
3.) What makes one panel different from the next?
