LG 4k OLED in September!

http://hdguru.com/lgs-ultra-high-def...-price-leaked/

Priced at $6999 . Sounds like a steal compared to the Sony X950B. Only negative I see is the curved screen.

The other negative is the chance of burn-in. Hopefully they've improved that from the last gen of sets.

I'd easily get this set over that Sony.

From what I've read from actual owners of OLED, it hasn't been an issue.

Yes my friend this fight is over. I assure you Sony will be making 4k players for everyone very soon and there will be a clearance if 950B sets before the end of the year. The 65900B is still very much in the game because it's a great value for $4,000.

Have you seen any indication on pricing of the 77" yet? The only thing I've seen is the $25,000 Canadian listed by a Canadian online retailer - any US reference for pricing yet?

I'm also curious about pricing for the 77". Planning on buying a 4k tv for my basement next summer and want at least 75"+.

Lets face it, we will be lucky if the 77" is $15K on the street. So lets say it is 15K, that's a little rich for my blood.....But hey you only live once, and this world is getting real rough

Yes , I read somewhere it will be wall mountable. Not sure about the 77" though.

The owners manual shows that it is along with instructions. May have to buy mount from LG if early adopter.

I am going to start my own company that unbends all of LG's OLED displays and mounts them on flat boards.

Seriously though, this is great news on the 65" with a great starting MSRP. I still doubt we will see the retail sale of the 77" OLED in the US this year, and if we do most likely special built to order with high price. My advice is, if you can afford the 65" OLED to grab one quick. Expensive top of the line products like the Elite and Kuro have a nasty habit of quickly disappearing as soon as the company looks at profit margins and sales volume.

I read in Digitimes recently that LG remains in discussions with Panasonic and Sony to provide OLED panels plus they are contracted with three Chinese manufacturers to provide China OLED - can LG really get a monopoly over it's rival Samsung?

Also read that for the first time LG surpassed Samsung in 4K sales when they include their sales of panels to Panasonic and Sony it lifted them beyond Samsung for 4K for one month anyways.

This 65" panel will steal thunder from others high end units and I would guess 2015 a year from now the 77" may become affordable when comparing how dramatically the 55" has dropped - and Yes the 65" is mountable.

Shootout time should be arranged in October but this thing is likely to shutout the competition.

'Get 'em while they last', huh :-)


Both the Kuro and the Elite were fundamentally more expensive technologies than mainstream LED/LCD - they could not compete on price no matter how much money they poured into R&D or marketing so it was a fundamentally losing proposition.


LGs WOLED is in a different situation - it is fundamentally less expensive to manufacture than LED/LCD (no backlight) and so it is only a matter of driving sufficient volume to achieve economies of scale, but they can win on price if given the chance (and the time).


Now if the technology doesn't work, the LED/LCD behemoths drive down pricing so quickly and so low that LG can't afford to chase them and has to fold the entire tent because it would cost too much to win the war, that's another story.


But where the Kuro and the Elite had no chance of winning the war on price against LED/LCD, WOLED fundamentally has a chance.

IMO if Panasonic doesn't opt to sell OLED's they purchase from LG this will be a very good indication they intend to exit the TV business. Looked at Amazon on Sunday and the only Panny set Amazon was selling was listed as discontinued by mft.

^^Panasonic seems to be selling all of its LCD televisions direct through its own website (this seems like the only place you can buy their AX800), and I believe Best Buy is the exclusive B&M location for Panasonic sets this year, although they only carry one or two models. Either they're going to exit the business soon, or they're regrouping...their lineup this year seems to be the sad LCD half of a 2014 lineup that most likely also had a companion plasma line.

In any case, I'm excited for the prospect of large OLED and the price really isn't too bad. Let's hope they aren't a one-off.

With that said, I will roll with a 65" for a while for sure

Would love to buy the 65" and potentially the 77" if not extremely expensive. But I won't buy either if curved; it just won't work in my rooms and with the seating arrangements I have here.

Make it flat and I'll start to be interested.

I'd also like to see most of the Vizio Reference series features such as wide color gamut, HDR and 120hz 1080p input. Then I'd REALLY be interested. I don't want to buy a top of the line 4K TV that isn't going to support newer color standards coming out.

According to a link from a well respected seller who runs shootouts each year (posted in the OLED section), the 65" and 77" OLEDs are 10 bit with the ability to show the DCI color gamut.

If you read the owner's thread on the LG model, there are a couple of owners with burn in, a couple with yellowing and quite a few with multiple dead (visible) pixels. These all sound like "issues" to me.

Quite honestly, if these two users didn't have actual burn-in, I'd already own one of these.

There was no burn in, only reports of ir that goes away very quickly
Only burn in I have read of is the display unit, and it had a menu up, 8 hrs a day, for months
