Actually it's pretty funny to read these topics entirely.
Seeing the trolls turn their coat from page to page is hilarious.

"LOL, samsung can't mass produce 50" yet, I know for sure"
Samsung and LG announce 55" available later this year for 9,000$ and 5,000$ a piece.
*trolls backpedaling and doing all sorts of damage controls*
What I know for sure, is that the internet is full of crap and people who think they know everything. I honestly believe LG/Samsung engineers have other things to do than come and debate with blind peoples/trolls on forums about their technology.
And if you're not part of it, I hardly doubt you would be able to know for sure whats going on in their labs and factories. Stating otherwise makes you look like an idiot (or obviously you have medium talents).
OLED will have the same chances than any other display technology.
LCD had it's chances, the results after all these years are pretty mediocre and it didn't even beat the old plasma. Now we're using all sorts of different technologies to try and save the poor performances of the LCD (LED, etc..) but the fact is, it already reached its limits. After 10 years on the market, this is what we have : clouding, grey blacks, motion lag, "bleeding back light", unnatural colors, etc..
The plasma is heavy, greedy, and the performances are far from OLED's (yes, even for the Kuro).
The OLED is showing impressive numbers and PQ from the start, try and imagine what OLED panels could bring in 5-10 years when the technology will be improved. Yes, it will even blow the good old CRT out of the water.
This is the difference between the OLED and the past technologies introduced (Plasma, LCD, SED, etc..), none has shown such promising performances and numbers since the CRT (which is a long time ago).
And yes, Samsung and LG are starting to mass produce 55" models for this year. I'm just a well informed consumer, I'm not pretending to know everything, just reading the press/numbers and using common sens.
This is basics in manufacturing, whatever the product is, it's impossible to reach full potential in the first few weeks.
LCD's, Plasmas, CRT's had the same problems when they appeared on the market.
You don't build a whole chain of production from nothing and expect to have 100% success.
It's not an exception to OLED.
