    From friends that have seen it at CES..... stunning and blows any current TV outta the water. (These are friends who currently have Kuros and the like)

    Happy to wait for lots of early adopters to buy them first, and then buy one when prices have come down to around the £2K mark.

    5k, thats not bad at all... in the context that this is the first large sized OLED display(as is LGs) and it has 3d tech etc. The kuro which is still the pinacle of plasma displays was mighty expensive on release and plasma had already had a few sales years before its launch so wasnt spanking new, just the best and i think it was ~£3k, so £5k for a brand new tech at 55" with 3d stuff and all the niceties that comes with OLED isnt bad for early adopters, i can see this getting to £2k by 2014 if not 1k!.

    Excellent times ahead, OLED FTW

    Come on, you can't see apple failing within a few years? Either they invest some money and actually invent something or Samsung rape them.

    When £250 will get me a 24" OLED PC display, I'll be selling my £250 PVA display.

    I can still remember when 42" non HD plasmas were £20,000... By comparison 5k isn't a lot!

    If it's anything like the smaller displays I've seen (mainly on mobile phones and MP4 players) then I'll agree 110%.

    The vivid colours, great angles and picture precision in a 24" unit with a decent selection of ports (DVI and HDMI with autoswitch between them) would be superb. Want one

    55" TV on the other hand doesn't interest me, (in my teeny house that'd be darned near a wall by itself), but a 40" in a couple of years would be fine.

    Career status: still enjoying my new career in DevOps, but it's keeping me busy...

    I usually vote with my wallet when it comes to new tech (Optical fiber broadband to the cabinet, SSDs, etc..) but I am not in the position to spend that much on a non essential item. With that sort of money you can get double/triple glazing for the average 2/3 bed house.

    Kudos to Samsung and LG for persevering through the patent maze and actually bringing this tech to retail (SED TVs could not make it) but I will have to delay my true support, for now.

    Exceedingly well argued point, I thought.

    ... and, like you, I'd wait for the 2k mark before looking seriously.

    £1,000 gets my attention.

    Although by hit the time they that level I would expect 4K screens rather than just HD. It won't be long until we see 4K capable video recorders (either dedicated camcorders or dSLRs) aimed at the high end consumer and prosumer level with nithing to play back the footage.

    There are already 4k capable prosumer camcorders out there (or near release) for around the £3.5k mark. There must be pro screens put there capable of 4k viewing as there have been 4k pro cameras put for the past couple of years. It's just a matter of the tech filtering down to general consumer level.
