[TS] LG to ship first 55" OLED TV in May for $7,928 - Page 8

post #71 of 80
****KKK YEAHHHH. I LOVE TECHNOLOGY!!!

Bring on OLED, I can't wait to be able to afford them nice blacks whites and crisp colors on these babies
post #72 of 80
wow, I was expecting the price to be higher TBH

less than 8K for 55" isn't too shabby considering some of the higher end 55" LCD models today are just shy of 4K (at least original MSRP), and even a B effort from an OLED manufacturer should destroy the highest end LCDs.

Considering Sony's 11 inch XEL-1 cost $2.5k a few years ago, this isn't bad.

 

Still not interested though, especially don't get the hype over how thin it is...not like you're going to be staring at the TV's profile all day anyway...

No but you could buy 2 and place them in the middle of a room and have a double facing display.

Some difficulties with OLED:

1. Low production yields leading to very high panel costs and much higher end-product cost.
2. High number of pixel defects even in panels deemed to be 'acceptable'. It is difficult to justify charging someone a hefty premium for OLED and in the same breath having to inform them that they should expect an exponentially higher likelihood or number of pixel defects. Hand picking a limited number of perfect panels for demo is one thing, scaling this to mass production levels when there simply are so few perfect panels available is a completely different story.
3. Lack of stability in RGB OLED systems. Rapid calibration drift requires either expensive built-in systems to try and mitigate drift or re-calibration intervals we feel most end users would find unacceptable compared to other available technologies.
4. While we feel OLED technology has a very promising future in professional applications we feel white OLED based systems could potentially prove to be preferred over RGB OLED based systems. This is a bit of an unanswered question as far as I am concerned and many arguments can be made for/against both variations.
5. Even the best OLED based systems leave you with a product lifespan that is nearly half (or even worse) than many of the LCD based alternatives currently on the market. This is not a deal-killer for OLED, but it is something that needs to be reflected in the price or at the very least kept in consideration for/by the end users. Even at the same price your long term cost of ownership could be much higher for OLED if you have to buy 2 for every 1 LCD based alternative.
6. OLED undoubtedly gives you great black level performance, but maximum peak white luminance capabilities can be lacking for many applications. Low peak white luminance coupled with the glossy OLED screen surface can make it difficult to use outside of well controlled lighting environments (so perhaps good in post, maybe not so much onset or in the field).
7. Most OLED has very little perceptible off-axis contrast drop, which is great, but color shift is an issue that in many OLED solutions I personally find more noticeable than some high-end LCD based solutions. This could prove problematic in some viewing environments.

I think it is important to note that I don't think any of the above are show-stoppers for OLED, but they are considerations that need to be weighed carefully. The technology will improve with respect to both performance and production yields. Pricing will also improve over time as these challenges are met. At the point we feel we can introduce an OLED based solution with performance/quality that is worth what we would need to charge for it you can be sure that we will bring it to market. Until we can meet that basic criteria we won't release such a solution.

Sorry for the long response to such a concise question, but it is one we receive often so I wanted to provide some detail on my thoughts on this topic.

I better start saving now!!! This technology looks unbelievable. Even the 5" OLED on the PS Vita is pretty sick looking. I can't even imagine 55 inches of this goodness hanging on the wall!!!
post #77 of 80
That's an awfully specific price. Is that supposed to make the story more believable?

As far as I'm concerned, I'll believe it when I see it. OLED is and always has been some serious vaporware and very few people seem to realize that.

OLED displays are currently being used for various mobile devices and some displays I believe as large as 20". So I don't think it should be called vaporware.
It takes time to be able to implement the technology to larger screens. I hope this is a start to successful future for OLED.

This is good and all, but im still waiting for OLED computer monitors - preferably 120hz+, 1920x1200, 24" ones...

Definitely new some monitors that go beyond Full HD like 2560 x 1600 here in the US that are affordable. Only seen LED IPS panels from S. Korea that are cheap and at that resolution. Probably will take time anyway. OLED will take time anyway to make them affordable to consumers.
