Yea got a 4k panel and the 4k oled are just ways better. Saw a big panel at my local store a 8k oled just 100k $ canadian lol. Maybe in 5 years haha

It's not collusion, if you look at the diagrams on AVSforum of how OLED substrates are made, they can only make financially reasonable panels in certain sizes. Only in the last year has production ramped to a point where the 48 is possible financially. OLED manufacturing costs are way higher than LCD and yet somehow LG is managing to get the prices down. It's pretty amazing honestly. My C7 is the best display I've ever owned and it's 3 years old. I'm so tired of LCD.

Smaller OLEDs like the 15.6 inch used in laptops are manufactured by Samsung, not LG. They use a completely different manufacturing process than the WOLED panels made by LG. No one manufactures any OLED panels above 24 inches or below 48 because the economy of scale isn't there yet. The most likely next step would be a 42 inch WOLED from LG. Samsung can't make their OLED panels larger without massive defect rates which would make them cost a fortune. Yields!

Fundamental truth.

moonbogg I personally won't be interested in HDR until per-pixel light control is a thing, as with OLED. I don't see how HDR is really HDR if you have light bleed washing out surrounding pixels. You can't get individual strands of hair or a rear view mirror of a car shining bright with the surrounding areas being dark without pixel level light control. Linus showed a comparison between the BFGD and an OLED gaming TV and the difference was hilarious. You could tell the BFGD was all washed out even by watching on an SDR screen when compared to the perfectly detailed lighting control of the OLED.
LG has gaming grade, high refresh OLEDs with Gsync now. Making them smaller can't be that huge of a challenge for them. If they make it, EVERYONE will buy it and it will kick ass. Even 1200 zones or whatever isn't even close to being enough to get a starry night sky done right in HDR. $3600 for washed out neighboring pixels is just stupid.

I hope the prices go up again to $6000 next time. That would be cool.
That game is only going to last until someone releases a smaller OLED TV. If a Cx came at around 37 or 40 inches these guys will need to cut price dramatically.

It’ll drop pretty quickly and significantly, I think. The X27/PG27UQ sit at $1400 now

dansi acer and asus have been doing this same **** for the past 4 years.
Announce nicely specs AUO monitors at ces, delay for months and years, release at bad prices, comes with QC issues.
Rinse and repeat.

No improvements, nothing exciting here. Move along

epic1337 32" 4K is my ideal size tbh, fits my desk perfectly while the higher PPI would allow for better-looking 200% scaling options.

skupples unfortunate, but seems likely.

I'd assume OLED has a lower profit margin as well, which would further aid towards the cause of collusion. Why sell 32 inch OLEDs when you can 20x profits on ancient LCD tech?
