I think you are underplaying what Samsung is about to accomplish. They arent just hitting price competitiveness with high-end LTPS LCD's. They are claiming crossover for all LTPS LCD's. Chinese...

The quotes about OLED's being cheaper to manufacture are worthless without the appropriate caveats. The part of the statement that is left out is that OLED's will be cheaper to manufacture when they...

That is right around the price premium that TCL seems to be charging for their first set. The key will be what kind of Samsung thinks they can get.

This is the first time I have seen an estimate for the cost increase due to adding quantum dot LCD's.

It certainly looks like it could be an OLED. There have been rumors around Panasonic but I think Sony showing an OLED would be a bit of a surprise.

I dont think the Chinese brands matter much right now in the battle of LCD vs. OLED. They simply arent selling to the same customer that is looking at an OLED.

I dont know about street pricing, but it looks like the TCL QD 55" set is going to sell for 12999 ($2090) Yuan. That compares to around 10,000 Yuan ($1600) for their previous high-end 55" set.

I argued for a very long time that pricing was irrelevant until the M2 fab started production.

I do agree that the 30% price reduction curve will eventually become dominant. The question is...

Yep, the UK price on the 930V is 1999 pounds. The straight conversion puts that at $3140 but subtracting out the VAT puts that close to $2500 already.

1) Everybody without an OLED will be pushing the hell out of quantum dots.

2) LG will announce a 55" 4K unit as well as flat 65" and 77" versions. I think it will be...

That isnt clear at all. The M1 fab is going to continue production with new equipment and I doubt that LG is going to be producing many non-4K units in 2016. They might not even have a non-4K unit...

That includes a 20% VAT and usually, US pricing is still cheaper even after you discount the VAT.
