Anyone want to buy a TV for $10,000-$20,000?
Well, here it is: a completely new TV technology for 2013 called OLED, Organic Light-Emitting Diode. Really, it’s perhaps everything you ever wanted in a TV: significantly better picture quality than any current TV, a contrast ratio that is significantly higher than any modern technology (deep blacks that disappear in a dark room, whites that pop off the screen), lower energy consumption, and marvelously thinner cabinets. OLED offers more realism, better appearance of depth (even with 2D) than anything you’ve seen.
LG is reported to be releasing an incredibly thin (4mm) 55-inch OLED model, on track for debut late this year or early 2013. Indeed, OLED is truly the next-generation of TVs. The downsides of OLED? It’s new, and with newness comes the unknown. There’s likely to be some tweaking-type problems, and how long will it last without breakdown is anybody’s guess. Then, of course, there’s that price: current estimated prices on a 55-inch OLED TV is somewhere in the range of between $10,000 – $25,000. Yeow!!
