Quoted from someoneelse:
Apart from the drawbacks already mentioned by others there's also the fact of the "missing pixels". I'm extremely picky and tend to be a perfectionist when it comes to technical products, maybe a very German "problem"...
Not considered to be a problem to me. Perfectionism is a good thing in engineering, as long as it doesn't mean procrastination.
Quoted from msj2222:
How do you conclude this is an inferior product when its not even finalized and released yet? Kind of a bias and uninformed blanket statement. I also believe there are plenty who haven't drank the cool aide and believe Samsung has the better product
Why is it that believing one company has the better product mean you drank the 'kool aid'? That is a rather simplistic and judgmental way of addressing opinion without regard to how one arrived at said opinion. Conversely, it would be just as easy to say that those that believe Samsung has the better product drank the 'kool aid.'
There is a difference between realistic, critical, and negative. The first one is a statement of fact, the second intended to help improve, and the third useless from the standpoint of being constructive. Unfortunately forums provide a relatively safe place for people to be derisive and judgmental without the stigma associated with such behavior when it takes place in person.
Quoted from jamieflowers:
I am working on the POTC colorization and there is a way around the missing 8 dots. Mike and OGA are working on an update that will address this via a software update to Pinball Browser. I would say everyone should reserve judgement until the product actually comes out.
As has already been pointed out, judgments about the product were being made based on the available information. If a producer doesn't want judgments made about their product before it is ready, they should not announce or provide information until they are ready for feedback, positive, neutral, or negative.
It doesn't behoove anyone to be mean-spirited in my experience.
