Interesting LG had an 8k 80 inch class miniled that they teased but did not plan to bring to market this year... Probably competed too much with their OLEDs... At the end of this video (10:30):

I want to make certain I understand what your are saying. It sounds like you are saying if Samsung or Sony produce MicroLED panels that are 9-12 inches square, it would be a challenge to keep them perfectly aligned so as to hide the seams if they are slightly off axis, but you are suggesting if they make much larger panels, so a user would only need to combine four of them, that would make it much easer to keep in perfect alignment. Is that correct?

Cheers!

Jake :-)
Hey there long-timer. I think it's a tradeoff. Smaller panels can probably be manufactured to tighter tolerances such that they are very close to truly flat. But, since there'd be more of them, to the extent that there was any flex/bend, you might have to tend to more of them to keep the overall image looking good. OTOH, fewer, larger panels means fewer panels to keep in line, but, because each panel is larger, they're more likely to not be perfectly flat.

Check that owners thread for The Wall in the $20+ sub forum. He talks about the adjustability built into the rear of each panel. Hold a piece of paper in your hand and think about all the ways/directions in which it could flex, and think about the correction tools that would be required to 'unbend' it in all those directions. They've built that into The Wall, but that product is insanely expensive (and even with those tools, you have to pay Samsung to install the thing...)

Stuck up, half witted, scruffy looking, nerf herder.
Double True!

That's potentially good news. I'm at 88" now and my next display has to be - at the very least - a good deal better than what I have at 88", or, preferably, bigger and about the same quality or better.

Wow!

That was a fascinating read (The Wall thread in the Ultra Hi-End HT Gear ($20,000+)

The guy here who had one had the "smallest" one installed

"I'm getting the "smallest" version of The Wall which is 16 panels in a 16x9 aspect ratio with overall size of 146" diagonal and 4K resolution. I measured this to be 127" wide by 72" high."

But they may be making smaller versions in the future.

Samsung will have 75in, 88in, 93in and 110in (4K) and 150in and 292in (8K) MicroLED 'The Wall' displays available this year, with those under 100in delivered pre-assembled in a frame (like a normal telly), and the larger sizes requiring installation – as existing The Wall does.
