Is it easier to make huge oled tvs over lcd tvs? While oled tvs havent even been released there are already alot of huge oled tvs being shown off. I thought i read large screen oled tvs are easy to make will 80+" oled tvs be normal?

No, it's not easier. Anywhere you read that is based on a lot of bogus speculation using technology that doesn't exist.

The backplanes are the same as LCDs, the color filter layers (on LG's OLED at least) are nearly the same as LCDs, the middle layer is proving hard to build at any size. Future OLED techniques don't even exist yet and they won't be 80" and up for quite some time.

On the other hand, Sharp is showing it's really, really easy to make 80" LCDs.

And you may ask yourself well how did I get here?
And you may ask yourself am I right? Am I wrong?
And you may say to yourself: What have I done?!

So it seems likely that Panasonic won't produce new plasmas for 2015. Samsung might still. OLED will still be outrageous that year. That could be your nadir.

But if luck plays out, there will be a "last great" Samsung in 2015 and by 2016 an affordable 65-inch OLED. Or at least a $4000 one.

And you may ask yourself well how did I get here?
