    Hey John, if the comments in the last CES roundup are anything to go by plus a few other comments 3D is dead ;). I certainly hope this is not the case :eek:, I love 3D animation and there must be gamers out there who love it too:confused:. Is it really all about resoloution and Black levels then mate :rolleyes:

    No.
    Chucking high res numbers is just to show off and it attracts the attention of the average consumer when they see big numbers. I mean what would you buy a Full HD screen or a 4K HD Res Screen, or better yet 8K res screen.

    Big numbers attract the average consumer mate simple mind tricks. ;)

    Great stuff. I have a Samsung galaxy s2 and it has a oled screen, while not the same oled as LG it has given me a taste for this tech.
    Its been sometime since I have been excited about a new tech.:thumbsup:

    Speaking about the 8000 pounds rumored pricing this year Samsung has something way better to say.

    Samsung 55 inch Super-OLED-Tv will be much cheaper than 8.000.- Dollar

    Samsung says "The price of the 55 inch Super-OLED-Tv will be much cheaper than 8.000.- Dollar. It will be a little bit higher than the premium LED-Tv/Plasma-Tv devices from Samsung."

    It looks like LG's OLED will not sell one set at 8000 pounds.

    But will you pay 4000 pounds more for an OLED with passive 3d. I am getting fed up with the passive 3d and the huge premium we have to pay for it. LG advertised that passive 3d TVs will be cheaper and the glasses will be cheaper, but are the passive 3d TVs cheaper??? NO!!! So a Samsung OLED active 3d for 4000 pounds(i estimate from the article) and an LG OLED passive 3d for 8000 pounds I ll take the Samsung thank you very much and won't have to sell my car either.

    LG will really have to compete price wise to win my custom.

    @ elgriego

    I believe LG has indicated there will be an OLED TV on the market late this year. I am not sure when Samsung intend to put their OLED TV on the market. Perhaps some help on this one? :confused:

    The question about pricing is moot. ;) Prices have not yet been officially published.

    PQ is most important to me. If I watch 3D, my old eyes would prefer a more comfortable experience. AFAIAC the choice of an OLED TV will come down to PQ, then price consideration - as you say.

    I am waiting in anticipation. :rolleyes: I hope there will be 2 OLED TVs for me to choose from, but there may not be. :)

    :thumbsup:
    On the argument of passive versus active, well there isn't any I prefer passive all the way. :clap:But picture quality they will both be excellent and you won't be able to distinguish which is better as they both offer ink blacks all over and amazing colors. That is due to the technology and not how the company sets it up. As far as availabilty is concerned the article which is yet to be confirmed officially says that Samsung is ready for production now so I wouldn't be surprise (again if the article is confirmed) to see a Samsung OLED in May or June. And because mass production is bigger for Samsung then prices will be lower ...

    "The price of the 55 inch Super-OLED-Tv will be much cheaper than 8.000.- Dollar. It will be a little bit higher than the premium LED-Tv/Plasma-Tv devices from Samsung."

    ...so if I want to buy an OLED I first look at price then at 3d then at picture quality(as i don't think you can go wrong with OLED). Finally according to LG we ll have to wait untill 2014 to see OLED prices close to the LCDs while Samsung brings them today.

    So like you said we ll really have to wait for official prices. If I would have to choose between 2 OLEDs one passive and one active, at the same price, then passive wins anytime for me.:thumbsup:

    I would like to think that OLED is with us - or nearly with us. But I have been disappointed in the past. Will either set appear? :rolleyes:

    I am slowly learning that LG and Samsung are using different technologies and it will be interesting to see how they compare in the flesh, so to speak. Will anyone notice a difference? Will it indeed, come down to price?? Dum, de dum, dum. :devil:

    If I remember rightly Samsungs OLED screen is built up of RGB cells, weather the rapid aging blue cell has been addressed waits to be seen. I'm sure I read that at CES image retention was clearly seen on the Samsung OLED screen.

    LGs is white OLED with RGB colour filters. This will not suffer from the effects of blue cell aging faster like the Samsung, also I never saw anyone mention IR on the LG. Weather or not they do suffer from IR waits to be seen.

    What I think we will see is the LG OLED set should have a more stable image for alot longer, calibrations shouldnt drift for long periods etc etc.;)

    I'm curious as to the life span of these sets.

    i've heard rumorus that Samsungs OLED was too expensive to make so now they are using the same tech that LG use WHITE OLEDs. i hope thats true.... would be worth a chuckle to see them backtrack, you just KNOW they want to backtrack on their active 3D rubbish and get passive!! ;)

    The problem with that is the patent rights as LG bought this technology from KODAK and is exclusive to them. So I don't think Samsung can use the WOLED tech.

    Some light reading...

    haha, even better if they have to BUY it off LG! there's a lot of LG bashing on here (some of it is fair enough) but even so, Samsung are arrogant and immorale, at least LG (who are half the size) try hard!

    I've read that this technology suffers from a picture not as bright as an LCD/LED, and also from image retention/burn-in.

    So how does this tech differ from a plasma then, performance-wise?

    Black levels should be perfect black meaning on readings they will be 0ftl. Even the pios didn't do this.
    I don't think brightness will be a issue, as long as they hit 45ish ftl then that should be perfect for a bright room.
    Image retention can happen as your un evenly aging the cells. Bit like a plasma.
    Motion should be better than any plasma.
    No line bleed, miles better colour range, should be able to calibrate these 100% spot on with no issues at all. And no banding as these sets should be able to produce ever single possible shade of colour.
