I was happy to see LG develop for market 2nd gen flat and curved 55" and adding flat 65" and curved 77" OLED displays and all 4K. Congrats LG!!

But then I became even more excited to read their plans to manufacture large OLED TVs in key regions strategically throughout the globe. Thanks again LG for developing and also making the manufacturing commitment.

Bravo!

We'll find out this coming Monday, literally in less than 4 days, at LG's CES press conference.

I'm cautiously optimistic.

Good estimates, my guess is slightly lower. But this is UHD and the early launch prices.

Thumbs up Details on LG's OLED global manufacturing commitments

Here's a more detailed explanation of LG's strong commitment to advancing the mass production of OLED TVs.

Investing in the Future of OLED:

"To prepare for the imminent growth in demand for OLED TVs around the world, LG is establishing production bases in a number of countries outside of Korea. The company has already completed the construction of new TV plants in Brazil, Poland, China and Thailand with an advanced facility in Mexico commencing operation this year producing OLED TVs for the North American market.

Through the creation of this large-scale global OLED TV production network, LG is building an early lead in the next generation TV technology. With strategic bases serving local and surrounding markets, LG aims to reduce export costs and increase price competitiveness."

Go LG!

I still wonder thou with Sony and Panasonic saying no to OLED TVs, instead pushing forward on UHD (no complaints here!), is OLED ever going to make it??? Sure LG and Samsung still are in the game, samsung sells a lot of TVs but who ever says 'I'm buying an LG!' Idk I just can't see myself EVER buying a LG.

AccordTR, three interesting ^^ issues. First, regarding Sony and Panasonic dissolving their printed OLED plans, this does not mean they won't have OLED TVs. It just won't be a joint venture. Factors other than manufacturing issues that the public does not know may have caused the partnership break-up.

Second, is the LG brand, sorry I don't fully agree. Although LG is behind the mighty Samsung brand it's not so very far behind. LG has always been a forward thinking designer and developer of advanced electronics. So I respect them. Also remember, all major Korean brands have been very successful in vastly improving their ability to quickly become the leading tier 1 brand, competing very effectively among the top American and Japanese companies.

LG is a great company and is committed to designing and building high quality/high performance consumer electronics and other related appliance and electronics categories.

Third and to sum it up... all in all so very cool and I expect we'll see more highly advanced displays, LED and OLED from many of the normal expected suspects. CES will be very exciting for Ultra HD, LCD/LED advancements, PDP and now it looks like my personal favorite display technology, OLED is getting a nice boost.

Stay tuned for there's much more to come in the next few days.....

Sony's new lineup.

http://ces.cnet.com/8301-35303_1-576...ng-down-on-4k/

Best 1080p

KDL-W950B series: 1080p resolution, edge-lit LED local dimming Speaking of the W900A, this TV seems like its direct successor. It gets all the picture quality extras of the higher-end 4K X900A series, without the extra pixels that you probably won't be able to discern. Win!
Sizes: 65, 55 inches

Lowest model

KDL-W600B series: 1080p resolution, Smart TV If you want a 2014 Sony for as little money as possible, the W600B is your boy -- assuming the company doesn't sneak in a smaller or cheaper set later in the year.
Sizes: 48, 40 inches
3DTV■ Samsung (PN51F8500)
Player■ Sony (BDP-S590)
AVR■ Yamaha (RX-V475)
Speakers■ Pioneer (BS22□C22)

The manufacturers simply reek of desperation.

Boots with "OLED" printed on the soles sticking out of their bungholes, while they tout backlit LED screens that flap like a drunken albatross.

Charging ludicrous prices for a simple PC attached to a monitor, hoping people will pay thousands more for a computer that fits in a $100 smartphone. Of course, it's supposed to be a "Smart TV" or whatever the bean counters shouted as they pointed weapons at the design team.

4K with no source material, playback device, or standard.

This is a mess.

Besides LG, there is zero OLED love at CES 2014. I just don't see OLED TVs becoming much of anything anytime soon. Companies just don't seem interested in overcoming the issues with the tech and production of OLED.

looks like companies are standing still,trying to figure it out where to go next.
definitely 4K and curved screens was the main attraction and
looks like 3D is dead and absolutely no love for projectors.
and also everything was about making everything "smart"your tv,fridge,washing machine..etc.so people are getting dumber and everything else getting smarter ?
personally I would push Oled tvs(they looked beautiful,-same as 3 years ago) and LED projectors,4k looks great but if there is nothing to watch on it no reason to buy it,and it won't be cheap for sure.
also sound design is standing still too DTS was showing the same stuff as last year Dolby nowhere to be found,no speakers and no audiophile stuff.
I left a little dissapointed.

Panasonic did show off some prototype OLED made from their own factory…

Although I do fear if Panasonic doesn't sell enough LCDs this year there will be no Panasonic next year and no OLED. =(

The link in the post I quoted doesn't say 105" anywhere, nor does it say curved!
