Isnt Sharp's Gen 10 fab the source of Vizio's 4K panels?


We'll see what kind of picture quality Vizio manages to deliver at those prices. The premium for 4K was never going to be maintained, so the real question is how they have managed to deliver a FALD backlight at that price.

Someone claimed that even 70-inch panels were now coming from someone else, but I have a very tough time believing that. 70-inch panels on an 8G fab are basically like throwing money away. Of course, 65s aren't a ton better, so who knows?

Auo is providing a lot of the 4k panels (apparently for Sony, Toshiba, and Vizio).

Yes, but you'd think Sharp's cost advantage at 60 and 70 -- as well as a very strong pre-existing relationship with Vizio -- means that many of Vizio's panels in at least those two sizes are coming from Sharp.


You'd think that... but I admit to uncertainty.

Same $6499 price but also with a $1300 credit toward another purchase at Value Electronics so net price is $5200.

Certainly a good deal, though it presumes you can make use of $1300 on other electronics they sell in the reasonably near future.


I wouldn't call that net price of $5200.

I would probably put it at around $5500. My assumption is that you can sell the credit for somewhere close to 75% of its value.


My guess is that this gives you a pretty good idea of street pricing on the new model within a month or so.

Hello flat OLED http://www.adorama.com/LOT55EA8800.html

Same $6499 price but also with a $1300 credit toward another purchase at Value Electronics so net price is $5200.

Seems that the frame is included in the price. In Europe you can buy this model without the (€1.000) frame.



€1.000 frame..

Because there's been a lot of talk about the curved OLEDs, I think this article is somewhat relevant:

Why curved TVs might not be the devil's work after all. After 10 days with a curved TV, I actually quite like it.

Back in August, we posted an article on TechRadar with the headline 'why curved OLED TVs are a bad idea'.


At the time there was a general sense of bafflement in the AV business about a strange new trend in TV design - yep, curved screens were making a back. It seemed like a strange move.


But here we are seven months later, and I have a confession to make: I've lived with a curved TV, and I didn't hate it. At all.

Probably just a case of Stockholm Syndrome?!

Reading the negative opinions about curved screens, it has seemed to me that the arguments were excessively theoretical -- not based on experience viewing the display -- and in a way naive. We're used to the distortions involved in looking at a painting or a photograph, which differ very substantially from the real world scenes they depict, and we can learn to use what we see to reconstruct what the actual scene would look like. So it's not like the ordinary animated photos we see with regular TV didn't involve any distortion. What matters is whether, given some time, we can adapt to the distortions involved and stop noticing them as irritating distractions.

Could be. We'll see soon enough.

He basically argues that they still suck, just somewhat less.


The Stockholm Syndrome comment by greenland is really quite on point.

If anyone has seen this 25" OLED, how would you compare it's image to the larger consumer model OLED that were shown at CES?
That's a professional broadcast monitor, and won't be cheap regardless of panel.

AFAIK the old version (non-'A') has some issues (e.g. drifting red channel, poor viewing angle), but the new version is pretty much the reference.

From Robert Zohn on another forum, the 77" OLED is supposed to debut in late August for $24,999. No price yet on the 65" version which will likely be available in September.

Well, that's not exactly news unfortunately. Major markdown coming in 2015?
I take it none of the 4K OLEDs will be available in time for the shootout.

I guess we can give LG credit for more or less leaking the price at CES.


It'd be nice if they hit the delivery date, not that the market for $25,000 TVs is more than a few thousand units either way.


Still, a flat version of this is pretty much the TV I'd next buy. Take about 80% off the price and call me.
