  • OLED TVs

    So I went to the local audio/video store here, and saw the new LG OLED 4k TV for the first time. Everyone was raving about the 4k TVs the past year, and now, comparing the OLED TV side by side with their 4k LED counterparts, it is smoother, easier on the eyes, rich colors, better contrast, the whole 9 yards. Hopefully the prices will drop (65 inch was on sale for $4500 and 55 inch for $2800). However, only 2 companies have invested in the very expensive technology for OLED that I know of (LG and Panasonic), so unless the other players make the same investment (Samsung, Sony, Vizio, etc), I don't forsee the price to drop much. The OLED looks like it takes all the best of Plasma and LED and puts everything together. Highly recommended, but will have to wait for a price drop. Go and check it out.

    Owning a plasma magnolias series is as far as I will go
    1080P real 1080p boarders on not being in the movie anymore
    meaning it's so clear you can see the actors acting I am taken out of the movie and into a behind the Seans show
    also I agree the 4 k is hard on the eyes and the new is less of it. But lastly who has shows showing. It
    I have both fios and direct tv and unless I pay for a movie there is no 1080p
    so what is the point really
    analog stuff.

      the new ones have upscaling, which does make a difference, even if the content is 1080. Though I agree, the content would drastically increase the need for the upgrade investment. Plasmas are really nice, but now obsolete unfortunately, and the lighting of the room also it a big deterrent if you get a lot of natural light.

          There is at least one major disadvantage to OLEDS, they are far more susceptible to screen burn-in than LCD

            A lot of people don't know that in the later days of Plasma Panasonic came out with a built in feature called a pixel orbiter that moves the entire picture slower than is noticeable to the human eye, which reduces the effect of burn-in but of curse nothing prevents burn in if you leave a static display on the screen. Never had an issue with letter boxed or blueray menus, after all a mneu is just there to navigate to the contents of the movie and then its gone.. PS: On LCD displays, this is kindly referred to as "video memory" or "image retention, or ghosting" so it happens on LCD's as well.

            But under normal TV viewing TV burn in just doesn't occur as much as people think. In home entertainment applications, many do not realize that prolonged presentation of those vertical or horizontal gray or black bars, say when viewing 4:3 program content over a wide-screen LCD panel, is also a form of static image. I use 16:9 and have never had a problem.

          OLED has been a continuing set of issues. First, the rejection rate was over 80%. Then they improved Q/C and got it down into the single figure but even the screen shown at CES a couple of years ago was defective. I agree--and you would have to be blind to not see the differences--that OLED has the better picture. We know the story just bout the blacks with OLED. But here's the issue as told to me by the installer of my 4K HDTV. They have huge problems shipping the OLEDs and many are damaged in shipping. Six months ago, he told me that they have to order three OLED screens to get one that works. So they haven't worked out all the bugs yet. Hope they don't screw early adopters like they did with HDTV and the USB 2.0 input.

            I always buy from a local dealer to avoid shipping issues not to mention have local support should a set go to the defective side.

            I would never buy a display mail order, need to be able to take it back if defective and avoid shipping problems in the first place.

            Has nothing with whether or not you buy locally. I bought from Best Buy and remember the damage occurs in the shipping to the store. From overseas. Point is the OLEDs are very fragile and don't stand up to shipping yet. Remember same occurs with audio gear too. Some manufacturers ship stuff before releasing just to see that Fedex, UPS, etc will wreck the product. Sad thing is they are about equal in their level or crapability. Or even wine that doesn't ship!

          I had a manufacturer tell me about units sent in for repair that upon arrival evinced no sign of problems. He figured it was the shipping. That opens the option of first shipping a problematic piece of gear to yourself, before sending it half-way around the world for service. You could get lucky. :-)

            Forget OLED Now there is QLED

            Quantum Dot Light Emitting Diodes
            QLED is essentially a combination of two high profile display technology principles: quantum dot and OLED.But look out around 2018 -2020 for any widespread availability. http://www.trustedreviews.com/opinio...tech-explained

            Looks Like every time you turn around there is a new electronic device around the corner, kinda reminds me of new DAC's every qtr. .
