You might be right. Only time will tell, I suppose. I feel that past data is hard to use though because this market is crazy, especially with the technologies changing so much over the past decade or so.
As far as OLED's go, yes they are getting cheaper, but I think that's because people are starting to learn about their deficiencies. Personally, when I was ready to replace my 8 year old Plasma last year, I was thinking OLED or nothing. Now, I have zero interest in OLED and it has nothing to do with burn-in.. rather brightness, banding, among other small things. So I don't think LCD's are dropping due to that.
However, you might be right regarding TCL (and perhaps Vizio) competition. Still, until the likes of TCL and Vizio can compete when it comes to upscaling, which as we know is absolutely key for 90% of consumers out there, they still can't *really* compete when it comes to these high end sets such as the Samsung QLED, higher end Sony's, etc. Yes the PQ, PQX, etc. have their place even for certain high-end users. However, most of us out there that have 2 grand or more to spend on a TV, and are willing to, are more like myself and want a set that won't let them down when it comes to up-scaling and/or processing, motion, etc.
Anyway, I don't want to turn this thread into a debate about which TVs are best or most worth it, so of course I'll accompany my post with a big ol' "to each his own." This is just my two cents...
