No flat 4K OLED TVs have been announced by anyone. LG showed a flexible prototype that could be bent into a flat shape. Who knows if that will turn into an actual product in the future.

If LG...

Well, it's a theory at least. Time will tell what's actually going on with these TVs. I actually hope that this is not the case because IR caused by backplane issues is something that LG is...

I think it's almost 100% certain that the letterbox IR you guys are seeing has nothing to do with OLED.

If you read Chad's review of a recent 4K LG LCD, you will find it also suffers from IR:

Placebo is a wonderful thing. It's 4K therefore it must be better. Who cares about the charts. :)

I doubt any consumer level meter will even be able to measure OLED IRE level 1/100. At 100 cd/m2 white level and 2.2 power gamma, that would be ~0.004 cd/m2.

Having the tv crash while using an app is not that surprising - that's likely a bug in the app. That's why I suggested unplugging the network entirely while debugging this issue. But having a TV...

So how do you explain all the other owners who've had this set for many months never reporting this crashing problem? Sounds like it's only affecting the new owners.

In any case, here's some...

What's the point of a holographic projector? Where will you get fully 3d content to display on it? Sounds more like a toy for the simulation/scientific community.

Beyond just brightness, we should also be concerned about color shift as the set ages. Hopefully it won't get bad enough that it can no longer be calibrated.

That 30,000 hour claim is likely theoretical. I doubt they've actually been running these panels 24/7 for the past 3.5 years to confirm those claims. It also doesn't guarantee that all the pixels...

This looks like it might be a viable replacement for DLP projection if they can figure out how to get more light output. I wonder if it also uses sequential color or if it's rainbow free.
