The lowest prices of the year are now in effect on all 55" and 65" 4K OLED TV series. The B6 and C6 are now priced at $1,998 for the 55" and $2,998 for the 65".
I'm glad yields are finally solid now. I know on the smaller screens that wasn't an issue, but the defect rate on the larger panels was too high for a while.Actually, even at the previously higher price points, OLED 4K HDR TV sales have been strong and steady. As you said, the price moves make it available to a larger market segment. LG Electronics has put them on sale as a result of their sister company, LG Display's greatly improved yields. Production has now reached 100,000 4K OLED panels per month.
Actually, Universal Display Corporation owns the OLED patents. I saw the value and market potential of this technology about 10 years ago, so I bought some of their stock. I've been following the company ever since. Realistically the market penetration should be greater than what it is by now, but the high price and large panel yield issues have kept OLED from a wider adoption. Frankly I'm stunned the handheld market isn't saturated with OLED; extremely thin, virtually unbreakable and extremely low power draw. Can you imagine a cell phone that didn't smash when you dropped it, had brilliant colors and could go more than 1 day without a recharge? What's not to love?LG is the exclusive supplier because they own the patents to the only OLED display technology that can efficiently build large panels. LG Display does sell the OLED panels to other TV manufacturers, like Panasonic who market 4K HDR OLED TVs in the EU and Asia.
That guilt will quickly change to happiness...probably taking roughly 1 minute of viewing time
Hopefully your old TV will find a nice new home (or get repurposed to another room). Please come back and update the LG's arrival / first impressions!Hahaha even if part of the guilt has something to do w/ I only have the existing TV (Sammy UN55F8000) for 3 years, I'm sure it will happen that way. Won't be missing the Sammy at all!
Almost forgot to say "THANK YOU" guys for posting the info! Was gonna wait till next year but seeing this post ....
