Some sales data on curved vs. non-curved.

I believe the Samsung HU8550 (flat) and the HU8700 are identical except for the curve. The HU8700 costs $500 more than the HU8550 on Amazon ($3800 vs...

Like plasma, OLED's will always be subject to burn-in. Also like plasma, they will eventually have a long enough lifetime that most consumers wont have to worry about it.

If the 65" version has the same price ratio from the UK to the US, it would be $7500.

The price premium for the 77" version is insane.

It is a coincidence. The 6000 pound price includes a 20% VAT in the UK. A straight translation of the price would equal $8500.
