Arrow LG OLED TVs

Just placed my PO for LG's complete OLED TV line-up and two models are shipping today to our NY Showroom. Both are 55", one curved and one flat series, 55EA8800 and the EA559800.

The newer series, 55EA8800 is flat and is designed to look like a art with stunning museum quality famous paintings pre-loaded on its built-in chip. The images are shockingly beautiful and look like the real art that would grace any home.

We're running a special promotion on these gorgeous OLED TVs to make them as compelling as possible.

Enjoy!

-Robert

Thanks for the heads up, I've been trying to con my wife into letting me buy one. It looks like now would be a good opportunity.

Re: LG OLED TVs

This is the buy opportunity as at the convention LG is offering authorized dealers very attractive buy-in deals. I scooped up a few of each model.

Re: LG OLED TVs

We agree. The curve is minimal and does make the panel look cool, but it has no real picture performance benefit unless you sit very close.

The new 2014 55" Gallery series is flat and looks absolutely stunning. I also ordered the 65" and 77" LG OLED TVs.

Re: LG OLED TVs

What is the price and availability of the 65 and 77" models? Is there a UHD 55" also?

Re: LG OLED TVs

Yes LG is also launching a 55" 4K OLED TV. I'll publish the 65"and 77" OLED TV prices and updated launch dates this evening.

Stand by for some nice surprises.

One thing I could never wrap my head around was the need for a curved 55" display. Curved screens are meant for immersion....
We disagree......in part. The common use of curved screens in commercial cinemas, as well as some home theater projection systems, is to compensate for the characteristics of anamorphic lens usage in relatively short throw designs. The optical path of such anamorphic setups will cause pincushion geometric distortion and accompanying focus irregularities on a flat screen. Blurring progressively occurs in the image as one moves from the center outward. The image also gets taller as one moves outward toward the ends of the frame. A curved screen corrects for the bent optical path caused by the lens. The original Cinerama format was an exception to this and a totally different animal technically.

Will the 4k OLED still be passive?

Re: LG OLED TVs

Our first allocation arrived yesterday from CA and we wall mounted one in our showroom today. LG's new OLED Gallery edition is the most stunning display and far exceeds the overall picture quality of all other TVs by a very very large margin.

You must see this display to believe it's assume performance. LG was smart to pre-load top quality professional photography of the world's greatest art.

We now have all three OLED TVs in one of our store demo rooms and our clients are hanging out with mouths open for longer than we have ever had customers in our store just memorized by the beauty. Husbands and wives are bringing in spouses to see these OLED TVs.

BTW, LG's 55EA8800 built-in audio is the excellent.

This Saturday we're partnering with Sony to host a Hi-Res audio party and we're launching our newly renovated Ultra High-End 4K store demo theater. Hope some HTS members can stop by so you can join us for this exciting event and see our three OLED TVs.

-Robert
