Default OLED screen size and price comments

Its amazing how expensive the 77 inch LG OLED77G6P is with its list price of $19,999.99 (For that price I would rather own a high-end DLP projector). The 65 inch LG OLED65G6P is only $5,999.99. For some reason a 12 inch increase in screen size raises the price $14,000 (which is around $1,166.66 for each additional inch). It must be very difficult to make OLED screens over 65 inches. For example the 55 inch LG OLED55E6P only has a list price of $2,499.99, and for the 65 inch LG OLED65E6P it has a list price of only $3,499.99 (one is only paying $1,000 more for 10 more inches which works out to $100 for each additional inch).

Now that 3-D technology only exists in projectors for the year 2017, the new flat panel screens and OLED displays should be able to be made a few hundred dollars cheaper in theory. Now since I want 3-D, I am forced to go with a 4K DLP projector in the future for the main home theater room and I am forced to go with a 4K projector for the bedroom if I want 3-D (DLP projectors offer better motion quality and reference quality 3-D). I really was interested in a 65 inch OLED for at least the bedroom, but now a projector has become a lot more attractive for the future.

OLED needs bigger screen sizes in the 85, 92, and 100+ inches within the next few years at decent prices. It will be interesting to see what happens with this technology in the future.

The 77" can actually be had for as low as $16k to $17k. I doubt the SRP exclusively reflects the cost to manufacture versus making the TV out to be a showpiece. They build and assemble (a small number of) them only in Korea unlike the other models, which are assembled in Mexico and Poland as well.

It's about economies of scale. Think about it:

If 10,000 people would buy a 65" screen and only 100 would buy a 75" screen. The cost of making a 77" and loss in profits has to be offset to make financial sense to produce that product.

As time passes, if people buy bigger screen sizes as they've started to do with razor thon bezels because they can fit a larger screen in the same spot, that increases demand and thus make it more viable for manufacturers to produce at reasonable prices. However, we've all got limited room in our homes and 65" seems to be the limit for most.

I agree about what you are saying, however when shopping for a OLED display its much harder to make them in 77 inch and larger sizes in the year 2017. Maybe in 2020+ a 100 inch and larger will be no problem especially when the displays are made as thin as a roll up poster design.
