I absolutely love my Vive. Despite the expected g1 niggles, it's still a fantastic piece of kit. I've yet to try a rift but I'm looking forward to seeing how well the new touch controls work.

I've had a couple of Lumia phones over the past few years and my wife owns a Lumia 640. Really nice handsets for the most part but I think 3 or so years is long enough to wait for the wider app ecosystem to adopt the platform. I'm tired of the myriad half-arsed efforts (such as Anything from Amazon) that have a lot of functionality issues and only ever get token update releases. As much as I liked Windows Phone 8.x I think I'm going Android on my next handset upgrade.
I've had a 42" Panasonic plasma for about 5 years now and have yet to see anything within the "consumer" price range that would make upgrading worth the investment.
When this one gives up the ghost I'll probably get a second hand Series 60 to tide me over until OLED makes a dent on the scene but even then I'd be quite happy with a 1080p panel; My eyes aren't nearly good enough to make out any extra detail at all on "smaller" 4K sets from typical viewing distance.
Maybe in a few years time seeing a demo clip of Pacific Rim 2 in the wider colour gamut afforded by 4K will change my mind but until then I think I'll stick with the Luddite position.
