The 55" EA8800 from LG is priced at $8,999 and is the only flat OLED from a major manufacturer that is slated to ship to North America. It looks good, but not as spectacular as the larger UHD models, which outperform it in terms of overall image quality, so long as you ignore the curved screen. The irony is that LG is pitching it as a niche product—a "Gallery OLED" meant to display works of art. However, for such a use, UHD would truly come in handy since paintings usually get scrutinized from close-up—an application where UHD resolution would offer a tremendous benefit.

TCL Showed a flat AMOLED panel, but there was no hype around it. The specs look good, with a native contrast ratio of 20,000:1 and a peak highlight brightness capability of 600 nits—it produced a vivid, punchy image but TCL's rep said it was not shipping to North America anytime soon. I don't know where it will be sold, but it's quite clear that flat OLED is not a priority for any TV manufacturer. In my opinion it's a shame and a missed opportunity. The good news is that TCL demonstrated an ability to build a decent OLED panel, which should help bring down the cost of entry if the product ever becomes available. Currently there is no model number and no msrp.
