Yes, but the 800 nit brightness figure is for only 10% of the screen. It is only going to be used to highlight small portions of the screen. I also doubt it is going to be used in every scene. The...

This article answers the main question I had, LG believes they can hit the HDR spec using a 800 nit brightness for 10% of the screen. With the limited amount of screen time in which HDR is likely to...

This just isnt true. There is only one line that is only curved and the HU9000 is priced astronomically. Do you think the $3000 55" and $4000 65" HU9000 models are outselling the 55HU7250 4K unit...

Samsung has 3 curved model lines. Only the HU9000 curved line has no flat equivalent. The other two curved lines are priced at about a 15% premium to flat versions with identical specs.

I doubt this lasts too long but not good news for those waiting for the 65" set to get wider availability.

The issue is simply that it is really really hard to make OLED's. Samsung has been making smartphone OLED's for almost five years and are still the only manufacturer that can get decent yields.

I'll ask again on this thread, has anybody seen a complaint that the current 55EC9300 looks even a little dim in a bricks and mortar environment?

This 9300 is much less bright than most current...

Yep, the full-screen brightness is capped at something like 60-80 cd/m2 while small areas can get up to 200 nits on the 55EC9300.

That compares to the HU9000 from Samsung which one review lists as...

Agree with all of the above. The JS9500 is Samsung's flagship line but matching their pricing is only the first milestone. I expect LG will attempt to tier OLED's and the low-end will need to...

I would hope that this is just assumed by everybody. Large price cuts are coming. The only question is whether OLED's can sustain any premium (say 10 to 20%) to Samsung's SUHD lines. I know your...

I dont get why this is complicated. The top 2% of the market is about 4 million units. This approximately corresponds to televisions priced above $2000 (maybe a bit lower) It is 4 million units...

Your point is probably right but so what? LG is only aiming at the other 2% right now. The people choosing between the new SUHD series and LG's OLED's are not considering Vizio or any of the Chinese...

Yes, and this is the hypothetical that people used throughout 2014.

Well, according to fafrd, Vizio sold 50,000 P-series units in Q4. That means that hundreds of thousands of 4K customers in the...

Considering the marketing message, I would expect them to be at least as expensive as last year's flagship models. The 65" version of the HU9000 sells for $3999 right now on Amazon.
