I was recently at the WIS 2012 show which is kind of like CES. They had the LG OLED TV out just like CES except they had a possible real stand that might be one of the options. The AV Box was right on the base of the stand. I took a bunch of pics and videos.

Thanks for the info. I guess I might have to wait for this to come down in price sense the LM9600 is getting bad reviews.

It seems like there are multiple issues with the flagships.

I'll be honest though, when i was at WIS, i thought the LG LM9600 84 inch had the best picture quality.

TVs I saw at WIS 2012:
Samsung ES8000
LG 84LM9600 (Ultra definition)
LG OLED TV
Samsung es8000 65+ 75 inch
Sony Crystal LED
Toshiba ZL2 (Ultra Definition)
Panasonic VT50
Panasonic GT50

That 84 inch lg looks great. Gosugadget, i noticed you have the 55lm9600 and you also reviewed it a couple months back. You gave it a pretty good rating. Hows it holding up after your first impressions?

My review of the TV was with no instruments and was more of a hands on summary of the TV. It seems though users have found many undesirable issues after using professional software for testing. IMO after calibration, the TV worked fine and better than the ES8000 (other ppl might differ).

I do understand though that my video was not a full fledged out review using software (calman, video disc).

However when I get my hands on the OLED TV, which will be before launch, I assure you I will give a top notch review.

Have not seen OLED in person yet, but besides those awesome blacks and viewing angles, the rest of the picture always looks over saturated and almost cartoon like. In a light filled room though, it might compensate for the wash out. However, a good 4K IPS LCD with a glare free glass coating might get close and cost a ton less. I guess everything hinges on OLED production volumes, longevity, and cost.

As with all TVs out on display (retailers, events,etc), the settings are always on vivid. The lighting at the CES event was a little better than the WIS show but overall made no difference.

As for the price of OLED, manufacturing costs are lower than LCD(my sources). The reason for the high price is well, your paying for the price of new technology (not new but for large TVS). Plasmas were even more expensive when they first hit the market.

4K TVs did look really nice. Did you see the other videos I posted? One thing though, they dont have 4K TVs that are 55-inches (not that I know of). All current 3D capable TVs I know of are at least 75 inches and the 84 inch LM9600 will cost more than the OLED TV. You can expect a $9999 price when its released later on.

Based on what you saw with your own eyes at WIS, and with street prices being relatively equal. Would you personally take the 55" OLED or the 84" 4K LCD?

That is a very tough decision. I would have to break it down like this:

1-My current home cannot support an 84-inch TV.
2-There isn't that much 4K content available.
3-My home is not very big however it is very modern and I own some nice sofas so a 55-inch would fit in nicely.
4-I watch TV (testing,notebook hook up, movies, sports, news, internet. browsing, apps) about 30 hours a week.

I would choose the OLED TV but not by much. If there was more 4k content and my home was bigger, I would get the 84lm9600.


It doesn't get any nicer than this.

Thanks for sharing the videos and photos with us. I am so looking forward to the 84LM9600! It's supposed to be available here in the US around September, here's hoping it is.
