I was reading in the link you provided that this TV is "picture on glass" & I am curious what the usual/normal picture of most TV's is on & what are the pros & cons of picture on glass? thanks

This is what LG is calling it's top of the line OLED TV'S.
I may be wrong on this, but I think it has to do with no back light needed.

OLED's don't need a back light.

Real shame it's not included in this week's HDTV shootout. Since I doubt we'll have any owners posting about it here, the shootout would have been the only way to see if performance lives up to the price.

The OLED panel is paper thin and pliable and needs to be supported. A thin sheet of glass overlays the panel for that support.

From my understanding (please correct me if I'm wrong) both the E6 65 inch & 55 inch are advertised as "picture on glass" but the less expensive models (B6 & C6) are something other then picture on glass. I am curious what the "something other then" is & why would these less expensive models not need the same support? I'm guessing all of the LG OLED models are paper thin but some models do not have this picture on glass feature. thanks

Well, if it's actually shipping that's an improvement over last year.

I was hoping for OLED prices to drop faster than they have. Hopefully within five years or so something like this, or something even better (like Sony's Crystal LED or a display made entirely out of quantum dots) will be available in this size range for prices similar to what LCDs go for now.

Gotta get the MSRP below 10K (i.e. $9,999), otherwise this thing might as well not even exist. LG can't be serious about moving these at 25K, IMO.

Depending on yields they may well sell as many as they can make. If I had a high six-figure or seven-figure income I'd be a buyer.

They are all supported by glass. LG figured out a different way of incorporating the components(innards) and refining the panel. The G6 and E6 are the new way and also are a pre-requisite to what they want to start putting in car windows.

Thanks for your explanation. I am still confused though, if they are all supported by glass, why is it that only the G6 & E6 are being advertised as "picture on glass"? The use of the phrase "picture on glass" in the advertising of the G6 & E6 I thought was because those 2 models were somehow special because only those models had picture in glass technology. If the B & C series also are picture in glass, why are they not using that phrase in both of those models advertising? It doesn't make sense to me.

East and West Coasters with disposable income are going to eat them up, especially those within the entertainment industry.

Read the 2nd sentence of my last post. Now that they have found a way to put the computer boards in a different configuration, they can now expose the glass on both sides and it looks like a picture inside of glass. Where as before you cant see the other side because it is covered by a plastic cover that covers the computer components. The computer boards are now on the bottom of the panel or in the soundbar.

I hope you don't think I am somehow disagreeing with you because I am not. I just don't understand why they are using the phrase "picture on glass" in the G6 & E6 models but not the B6 & C6 models if all 4 models have it.

The terminology is very confusing. Is it safe to say that if the g and e are picture on glass, that the c and b are picture on plastic?

Or a video wall of 4 to 6 smaller-sized OLED TVs.
