I found an OLED Tech site the other day and they were discussing how LG had many Japan/Korea/Taiwan manufacturers signed/signing up as a source as well as numerous Chinese manufacturers we never hear of here - apparently the market is huge there also for OLED.
It seems LG may have a lock on OLED until Samsung manages to perhaps pirate and improve their own - this wouldn't be the first time they've done this and later paid a price in court.
They presently are in a patent fight in Korea but it seems LG is all in and willing to take the risk for the rewards of holding a monopoly for the near future but virtually every player has been negotiating subcontracting panels from LG. Never owned an LG TV but we have a new washer/dryer that work flawlessly and are beautiful looking for appliances. I still go back to the days when monitors were amber and ID'd as Lucky Goldstar - they've come a long way. Truy interested in how they price the larger models above 55".
