I hear your words, read the entire post, but I believe this ^^^^ to be classic AVS myopia. I just cannot see how a 99 incher is going to bring any more free media than similar sizes have in the past for other technologies, nor can I see how the size of the display says anything about OLED being "the King".

Guess we'll have to agree to disagree, because your statements just seem like jump discontinuities to me.

Roses are red,
and while that is true,
Violets are violet,
and not @#$%ing blue.

So by this logic and given that "ramping" isn't completion of all those and that 65s and up take away from the total not to mention yield... Our timetables aren't very off. You could imagine in this universe something above 6 million 55s in 2018, I can see exceeding 7 million finished goods all sizes in 2020 without straining (see above). My number (not a forecast) appears overcautious, which is good.

Yes, that is as much as I think it is realistic to expect LGD to do. Further market share in that time period is going to have to come from Samsung. I doubt they do nothing as OLED's take over the vast majority of their high-end share.
Right.

My focus on it is solely because I believe it's needed for viability, not because I believe in it for the sake of market share.

LG Display said Tuesday it expects to sell 600,000 OLED TV panels this year and 1.5 million next year. The company also cited comments made at the press event by Ching W. Tang, a professor at the University of Rochester in New York and "the father of OLED." He said OLED displays will not become ubiquitous for another five to 10 years. At that point, Tang said, they could outpace LCDs in total shipments.
As fafrd notes, without 3rd party help, that's unrealistic at this point. [Laughs again at the mocking I took when I pointed out in 2012 OLED couldn't possibly take over from LCD by 2020.]

As for, will they do it...

Yeo Sang-deog, the president of LG Display’s OLED division mentioned that OLED panel will become LG Display’s future cash cow and suggested that LG Display could be reorganized to focus on OLED business.
Let's hope, and not just for TV.

Those are the two major factors that will make the decision for the next fab. Prove those out and they can begin building next spring.
I guess I need to see the pricing action that's selling all of this. At current prices, they can't sell anywhere near 600K TVs.

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. (Oh, and plasma didn't die because of logistics problems, nor does OLED ship in big boxes because it comes from Korea.)

Power and its distribution for a ~100inch screen is likely another source of cost that may not be considered thoroughly when thinking about how to carve up panels for the varying sizes. IOW a 100 inch screen isn't just going to be double the cost of a 55 inch one and the associated R&D that will go into that size/product line may get spread out amonst fewer panels (depending on how they choose to treat their accounting/pricing of course).

Double, no. Roughly 3X, yes.

Didn't Panasonic make a jumbo plasma once (100" or larger) but what they didn't count on was that it was too large to ship?

Tool kit: Calman 5, Chromapure, VideoForge HDMI II, Klein K10A, CR250RH, eecolor colorbox.
Displays: Samsung 64F8500, Panasonic 65VT50
Audio: Marantz AV8801, Rotel Amps, Atlantic Tech 8200 speakers, Seaton Submersive HP

I think it will almost be binary in its outcome. If LGD does build the third fab with sufficient size to take over most of the high-end market, then I think you can count on more capacity coming on line by 2020 from Samsung and/or the Chinese. The WRGB patents are a barrier, but Samsung will either test the patents in court or get the Korean government to force LGD to license them. That's how you'll get the exponential growth in capacity.

If LGD doesnt build a third fab, then I'd make sure to get the 2017 model.
