Yeah, the 3d is great, for as far as 3d is concerned. I rarely use it but it actually doesn't give me a headache. Out of the friends houses I've seen it on this one does it best. I simply won't watch active 3d. But I'm pretty much done with 3d, it was cool while it lasted but I see no reason to continue using it. Watched a couple movies, moved on.

I'll admit that I'd be excited for autostereoscopic but until then sacrificing pq for false depth, while sitting alone with silly sunglasses on in your dark room, is little more than momentary gimmick to me.

Furthermore if the set has such a large gap between pixels simply to allow for passive 3d then that's even more upsetting. Not only am I sacrificing pq to watch 3d, but I'm sacrificing it in everything I watch. Shove it up your a** next time LG, I just want a good tv. (Hey that rhymed )

If I sow a wind now, I will reap a storm.

Don't let it shake you up too much. We all get burned the same way sooner or later, whether it's cars, tv's, or dating in college. Lol. It all averages out. Always.

OLED seems to be the perfect technology for all types of displays, but it also has some problems:

Info.com]).
Manufacturing - Manufacturing processes are expensive right now.
Water - Water can easily damage OLEDs.
Both Samsung & LG have made changes to improve the lifespan of OLED, This is old data. Of course Samsung's did not curve production cost, too bad because from what I here they are slightly better than the LG panels. Why worry too much about things we can't control? If you jump in, jump in with both feet and enjoy your OLED by the time it is tired 4k OLED should be affordable.
My Microcenter had five until I arrived. I have the LG set-up and watching Avitar 3D. I'm blown away by this tv. The 900b looks processed and unnatural compared to this. What a great deal. This OLED might be 2K resolution but looks much better than any 2K picture upscaled to 4K. The first thing my wife said when viewing the hd syfy channel on direct tv was "that looks real".

Well, there's always the prospect of my ship never arriving. In the meantime, it's hunker down time (my promo period does have an expiration date sadly)! You wouldn't have bought in at $3k...I take it $2k wouldn't have tempted you either, not even a little bit?!

I've read most of this thread but from what I see, the issues are dead pixels, IR, 30k hour life, and the blue lights loose their brightness faster. Did I miss anything?
Lack of grayscale uniformity is the only one you missed and of course the blue fading problem is mitigated with LG's WOLED solution.

I used the slides from the Panasonic 2013 Plasma line (no disc required, just a USB flash drive): http://www.avsforum.com/t/1466472/20...s-thread/0_100 - how long is up to you. I wouldn't go beyond 300 hours but you still need to be careful with letterbox content in the first 600 at the minimum.

My traditional question of new owners, can you post the manufacturing date for the television? Just trying to get a general idea if we are seeing a reduction in a few of the issues as time goes on.

I have zero idea what is going on with pricing. Both the Fry's and Microcenter deals seem like a move to clear inventory, but the Fry's price actually went up on their website from $3999 to $4999 today. Why would you increase the on-line price if you are clearing inventory? Is LG just testing the demand at different price points?

That would be my guess - they are going to have a whole lot more 55" WOLEDs to sell in a couple months and understanding the market elasticity as well as they can ahead of time probably makes a lot of sense.

I scored on the Microcenter deal today not having planned to upgrade my Kuro 110 FD. I walked into the store after a wine run at Trader Joes. In the same shopping plaza as Microcenter. Complete crazy spur of the moment purchase. Somebody tell me I didn't make a mistake! It was too hard to walk away from an opp to score OLED. I have my AVS education to blame. Can't believe I bought a curved TV. Picture is awesome. Curve surisingly not an issue so far.

That's the same theory I posted when I saw Fry's raised the price again (it's $4K in-store now). I think LG is testing the waters by doing temporary price cuts at various small retailers around the country. These stores don't move enough volume to affect LG's bottom line but can provide valuable data as to the price point where people jump in. I suspect these TVs were stagnating at retail, even at $3K. None of the Fry's in my area sold out at that price. Most buyers would rather get a cheaper and larger LCD (maybe even with 4K) because the OLED advantages are hard to see under store conditions. Curving the TV is also not helping them.

Hopefully LG will realize that they can't demand any significant premium for these TVs over LCD and adjust their permanent pricing accordingly. The $2K price puts them in-line with flagship Sony/Samsung LCDs of similar size so I suspect they'll be able to sell them all at this price.

Owners should not be worried that LG is unloading these TVs because of some defect. That would only result in class-action lawsuit down the line.

I'm glad we're going to get a bunch of new owners in this thread. A larger sample size will reveal a lot about the quality and durability of these TVs.

So here's another theory to explain the rapid price cuts the past few weeks. Maybe LG is nearing the end of a fiscal quarter and needs to show their stock holders that they didn't waste millions building TVs that nobody wants to buy. So they might be temporarily increasing sale volume in order to meet some kind of sales quota or forecast.


But the simplest explanation is that they are just clearing inventory to make room for 2014 models.

Maybe, but Microcenter doesn't have much inventory. Each store has a small handful of units. Unless they're continuing to replenish the stores (unknown at this point) the bump in sales volume will be tiny.

FWIW, I didn't make it to my MicroCenter yesterday. They still have the same number in stock as they did on Saturday. I will probably go check it out today, but I don't plan to buy one. I've been focusing on a ~65" TV to replace my 57" RP-CRT, and while getting a 55" FHD OLED for $2k is a relative steal I don't want to get a smaller TV, and I'm still unsettled about some of the issues you early adopters have seen.

The packaging of this tv really reminds me of an Apple product.



Coopson you said you still have it. Have you decided what you're replacing it with yet?
Looking to demo a sony vpl-hw40 projector and having a 115 inch screen.

The TV has been taken away today I will miss those blacks

Yeah, I'm now an owner, too!

LTLFTP here. Wanted to say thanks to all of the insights and feedback you guys have provided over the last couple of months since I first saw the OLED at Fry's and my jaw dropped. Took my wife to see it just for fun and she had the same reaction. We almost pulled the trigger right then.

I was ready to buy one for $3k but couldn't find a Fry's with one at that price. Then I found one on Amazon from a reseller and was about to buy when I saw the post here about Microcenter. Immediately called, confirmed inventory and price, and headed out to buy one.

It's now in my office running slides so i can keep an eye on it. Man I love this thing! So does my wife! No dead pixels so far, but I do have a few subpixels out. Seems 2 reds, 3 greens, and 3 blues. Nothing visible from any sort of distance, and I actually get dizzy being close enough to the TV to try to spot them

Manufacture date is March 2014, and the box it came in was in flawless condition. Microcenter dude said he got me one from their most recent batch of incomers, which was last Friday.

Cheers everyone - will keep you posted!!

From what I can tell three members have purchased LG's 55EA9800 for $1,999.99 from Micro Center. I went to three Micro Centers in the NY Tri-State area and they are all at $3,999.99 and say they can't honor the $1,999.99 price.

What Micro Center stores are honoring the $1,999.99?

I don't live near one as I live in Florida but surely this would be worth the drive to pick up one. I just requested the price from the website and it said 1999.99 I would do that and show the guys in store. I also wonder if bestbuy would price match.

Both stores in ATL honored it.

i bought mine in houston tx, website said $4k, but in store price was $2k., looks like they sold 2 yesterday

Well, my father was against me buying this tv, said it was a waste, typical anti technology rant
he came over for dinner last night and his first words were, wow, thats a nice picture
he ended up watching 3 movies and staying later than normal
the new robocop looked AWESOME on this tv, in fact, everything looks great on this tv
Elysium actually made me a little dizzy because of the shaky camera work and the details provided by the tv

I guess i need to run some slides to see if there any pixel issues although i couldnt tell by watching movies/tv

word of caution, when you switch to the standard setting, i would turn down the contrast from 100
i know this isnt the same tech as plasma, but when i bought my st50, i made the mistake of turning the contrast to 100 and now have burn in of a logo
Im not sure why LG would have a 100 contrast on a pre set, maybe the tv can handle it, but i turned it down ayways

Man I checked micro center store locations and there's one in St. Louis. I was there yesterday for a baseball game. Drove right passed it.

I was ready to buy one for $3k but couldn't find a Fry's with one at that price. Then I found one on Amazon from a reseller and was about to buy when I saw the post here about Microcenter. Immediately called, confirmed inventory and price, and headed out to buy one.

It's now in my office running slides so i can keep an eye on it. Man I love this thing! So does my wife! No dead pixels so far, but I do have a few subpixels out. Seems 2 reds, 3 greens, and 3 blues. Nothing visible from any sort of distance, and I actually get dizzy being close enough to the TV to try to spot them

Manufacture date is March 2014, and the box it came in was in flawless condition. Microcenter dude said he got me one from their most recent batch of incomers, which was last Friday.

Cheers everyone - will keep you posted!!
Whoa, this looks like one that slipped past QC. As far as I can tell, no one has reported any fully dead pixels as of yet, just subs. I like your positive attitude but with the high number of dead you already have, I'd recommend checking again after the first 50 hours of use to make sure that number hasn't risen.
