do you ever saw an OLED TV with your own eyes??
Marginally, yes. The ANSI contrast on existing TVs is already great as is the on/off. OLED will be freaking amazing on ANSI, but sets like the Sharp Elite and Sony 950 are so good, the difference to humans will be very, very small. True on/off -- intrascene dynamic range -- is not a real problem for most content. Your eye cannot adjust fast enough, nor do you want "daylight brightness" from your display. It's actually painful. Marginally improved.

Unfortunately for "us" it'll be the same as megapixels war in digi cameras regardless of picture quality. Think about iPhone with 8 mp vs DSLR with 6 mp and try to explain to Joe Consumer why cool iPhone produces worse pictures vs DSLR
Joe consumer is onto something here. He/she loves retina displays. He loves big screens. Accurate color is more or less available yet virtually no one pays for calibration to get truly accurate color on mainstream displays. You have people all over AVS railing against
accurate color and claiming it isn't even a real thing.
I don't know about the rest of you, but as much as I want an OLED, I would in a second prefer a really good top-end LCD or plasma at 80" to any
kind of 55" anything. Hell, I bought a 65" because the idea of something as tiny as 55" was ridiculous to me.
Honestly, I think these first-generation OLEDs are going to be a total bust in the market but so do the manufacturers
. They are going to make very, very, very few of them and sell them to rich people and egomaniacs (some overlap in that Venn diagram). Hopefully beginning in 2014, we'll get something better. Hopefully, in 2013 they will at least ship something at all
