I hope Apple releases one and pushes other companies towards using higher quality panels. I think their usage of high quality panels in the recent iPhones and iPads has help push the mobile industry in the right direction.
So you think that a TV with marketing bullshit like "retina display" will be any different than the afore mentioned HD moniker? The question here is the lack of a clear and concise statement about how good something is.

I actually find the term "retina" to be useful. It refers to an (Apple) device with exactly twice the linear pixel density (of what was previously an industry standard/average) while keeping elements the same physical size.

But retina isn't what I was referring to. The display on my iPad 3 is very close to the sRGB standard, has zero banding issues and uses an 8-bit IPS display. Many competing devices are using quite good screens, too.

I was disappointed with the plasma TV I got, even though it was quite highly rated at the time. I'd like a no-nonsense TV that looks as good as my iPad. Stores are worthless for picking a good display, always having the wrong settings.
