" Who's with me!?

Maybe when a few models are released they can create a separate subforum.

I'm excited too, don't get me wrong. I was just noting I don't think anyone can actually buy one yet.

Yeah, clearly the same demo loop from CES. And the same performance. And the same mirror-like front glass. I'd really like to see that low reflectivity glass used on these as soon as possible. We are entering the final frontier of contrast and having the room showing up in the TV is really getting in the way.

Anyway, if the performance of the shipping TVs is no better than that demo unit in the video you linked above, I really believe this is going to be a tough sell at $8000 or anywhere near it. There are serious issues with what goes on there that appear the same as they did in January. I hope the finished goods are better.

Regardless, this is exciting and the first step in a long journey. I'm sure things will get better into 2013 and beyond.

There is no difference in HDMI cables. If you can see the picture without visible dropouts or sparklies, the cable is working at 100%. No other cable will display a better version of that picture. You're simply wrong if you think there is a better digital cable than one that is already working.

* LG's OLED TV will be unveiled/introduced at the Cannes Filmfestival from May 16 until May 27.
* Review samples have apparently been delivered.
* First reviews on-line May 28?

Or am I too optimistic?

Lots of pics available from the Korean show, but I have no idea where that Greek website saw the box or managed to get their closeup pics. I have never been that interested in hanging my TV, but damn, this pic looks cool.

In Monaco today:

LG promises its OLED TV will launch ahead of Samsung's in Europe

http://www.theverge.com/2012/5/23/30...e-availability

"The race between Samsung and LG to release the first 55-inch OLED TV is still on, but LG maintains that it will beat Samsung to the punch. At an event in Monaco, LG held another unveiling event for its ultra-thin OLED TV, promising that it would be "the first company" to release one in the European market. Unfortunately, this wasn't accompanied by a price or a firm release date: it's still expected to launch in the "second half of the year," the same timeframe we've been given for Samsung's TV.

While LG's OLED TV is rumored to be coming out fairly soon, we've now been told not to expect it this month or even in June."

Engadget is reporting of rumors of a €9000. So that's about $11000. I thought this was gonna b cheaper than the Samsung OLED.

you cant do a direct currency conversion to get the price in your country.

it'll likely be ~$9000.

Totally agree, it was way more expensive back in the days.
It's a 55" OLED, the best image you'll get to see on a TV set for a long time.

It's expensive, I'm not going to say it's not, but it's the price for a new tech.

Pretty pissed we don't have a date yet though.

Edit: and they're talking about 8000$, not 9000$.
It's important, it's 1000$ cheaper ...

I guess they can't yet mass produce them the way they predicted.
This was more of a show off of the capabilities of the OLED.

CNET Asia's Philips Wong got the chance for some extended hands-on time with LG's upcoming OLED TV. Here are his first impressions.

A good detailed description, so worth reading.

Another up close report worth reading.

"We got an up-close look at LG's new 55-inch OLED TV and boy is it a looker!"

http://www.digitaltrends.com/home-th...rty-in-monaco/

The video clip at the bottom of the article is also worth viewing. It is becoming more and more evident that the LG OLED is going to have enough of a wow factor to attract the deep pockets, got to have one now, class.

Link to the photo gallery.

A product page on the LG UK web site:

No new information, but nice that they have a product page now.

Yeah, but let's face it. There was nothing else like those plasma available. Thin enough to hang on the wall, 16:9 form factor, bright picture as compared to rear projection, sharp picture at the time. While OLED is definitely the future if the can increase yields and reduce costs, they have much closer competition and much harder to justify the huge price premium.

Nice design, very excited for LG and the start of the new OLED TV technology.

Great quote that I hadn't seen before, but maybe you got it from this article: http://asia.cnet.com/product/lg-55em...d-45834945.htm

Looks like LG is separating the electronics from the display. Think this was discussed before and it definitely makes sense.

I was reading what someone said about this new display and was very surprised.

http://reviews.cnet.com/oled/lg-55em...ag=mncol;lst;1

"Having seen this television today, I must say I was underwhelmed. You cannot deny that the OLED TV's by LG and Samsung are striking aesthetically. Their thinness is unbelievable. From the side, these sets look like a pane of glass. In addition, their color reproduction and blacks are very good. However, the clarity of the HD video was lacking. Especially, when compared to the top LED TV's on display at CES. I actually preferred the picture quality of the top of the line LED and Plasma sets vs. the OLED TV's at CES. Maybe, it was the video signal. It could be that these were early production models. However, considering the stage at CES, I would think Samsung and LG would have presented these sets with the highest quality picture possible. If style and flair are your thing, you will love these sets. If you're a audio/videophile, there are better pictures available."

High-end LED is garbage because LCD is garbage. Grandpa tech plasma can kick rocks. OLED/OEL is the future: Back to the Future Part II's future. Pixels shutting off to create black!
Who doesn't want to watch The Godfather Trilogy on display tech such as this?or those high contrast photographed Oliver Stone movies?I'm talking to you The Doors (1991)!

OLED is the future I don't think anyone can dispute that, by all the numbers OLED is superior to LED and Plasma in every way. I'm greatly looking forward to seeing my first OLED TV, however when I'll really get excited is when the 4k resolution OLED displays start to arrive.
