Here is some rather bad news for OLED fans right from Samsung at CES.
All it does is solidify my belief that the next TV I buy will be an LG OLED set (assuming, that is, that manufacture ramps up in the second half of this year and that prices match expectations set by the decline during 2013 in costs of their existing OLED sets).
My brand preference would probably be for Samsung over LG, given that I trust them more when it comes to conventional plasma and LED tech. But when it comes to OLED, all the reading I've done lately suggests that LG's approach is less problematic, and less likely to suffer over the long-term from issues such as blue-pixel fade. And on top of that, expert reviews suggest there is very little to split the LG and Samsung sets in terms of picture performance (which I've seen, and is amazing).
Of course, I should expect that prices might tumble dramatically not long afterwards as the technology is (hopefully) mastered, but given that I've nursed my faithful old CRT for so long, and could have bought two or maybe even three high-end replacements in that time, I reckon I might be able to justify an expenditure sooner rather than later.
