Eyes-on LG's 15-inch OLED TV makes us want to punch an LCD

What can we say -- it's a near final build of LG's 15-inch OLED TV that's set to go production in Korea before the baby New Year can suckle at the big one-oh. We could say it's beautiful, that even motion looked good pushing genuine blacks on this razor thin panel. But we wouldn't want to rub your noses in the fact that we're at IFA and you're not. Perhaps this will make you feel better: by the time it makes it Stateside in February or March it'll be carrying a price tag right around $2,500. Really, but it's Wireless TV-capable and that's gotta be worth something.

Oh, and LG tells us that its 32- and 42-inch OLED panels are on schedule and due to be released sometime in 2010. Yes, 2010 contradicting what we've heard earlier. No word on price but it's going to be tres, tres expensive.

Holy crap. Those screens are thin. :eek:

This is some pretty awesome technology for sure. I wonder how they're going to bring the costs down though.

This would be awesome to have wall-mouted with touch-screens over lapping them (like on your average tablet PC).

I could see these being great as wall-mounted controls for your mult-room audio system, and as controls for your alarm system (if you had one). Could also have (since I'm thinking touch-screen with these) a GUI based slider as dimmer switches for lights and such.

Thinking about it now, the opportunities really are rather large as to what one could do with these.

Now, for them to catch on and be mass-produced so prices drop. :)

If that $2500 price tag was for just the 15 incher, it's going to be a long time before I buy one. It looks more like an electronic picture frame than it does a TV.

Sure beats Sony's 11" OLED at the same rrp.

This technology needs to take off within a few years, LCD's suck for TV.

I agree. Hopefully my 61" LED DLP will make it till then.

This isn't a "who's is bigger", but I just got a great deal on a 46" Sony 1080P BRAVIA LCD and replaced my 36" Sony WEGA tube TV in the living room. In 2001, the 36" was $1800. I sold it for $200 and the price on the 46" LCD was $800 (after coupon through Dell). Subtract the $200 I got for the old one and this is the best $600 I've spent in damned near forever. I use a PS3 for Blu-Ray and have a decent Bose surround on it.

Having said all that, These LED's look even better and I won't hesitate for a second to get one...when they get down to the $1000 mark. Afterall, I feel like I'm watching TV in a theater as it is now.

Looks awesome, so thin, wonder what would that cost

Yeah good luck with that :p. A 42" LD LED LCD today costs 2k. If we can buy that in OLED form for less the 2.5x that I would be amazed.

Is that the XBR8? I've heard they have amazing color reproduction (and obviously black levels).

nm, it definetely isn't for 800.

I'll hold on to my 52" DLP set until these come down in prices, no hurry though because I love the picture on the set we have now.
