OLED, or organic light emitting diode, TVs are finally shipping next month. I have heard about them for a few years, but none have been commercially available. I recall watching a plug for these where the display was reolled up & put away -a flexible TV?? I doubt LG is going that far, but you can preorder yours today, from Korea, for a mere 11 million won, or about $10k. 55in on the diagonal, 4mm (.16in) on the depth. Yes, less than a quarter of an inch thick. Supposed to be extremely vibrant color, and the press release says infinite contrast ratio, The human eye can only see 800:1, and TV manufacturers have been boasting greater than that for years, so may as well go with infinite to be bigger & better than everybody else....

LG's PR......

How do they get speakers plus inputs on a TV that is 4mm thin? An HDMI plug is thicker than that. I saw a really small Sony OLED TV a few years ago, about 12" but an amazing picture, incredibly deep blacks and really vivid colors. Maybe in 5-7 years when my 60" plasma dies I may be able to afford one.

I remember reading several years ago about super high def TVs in Japan that were demoed to an audience. It said people were passing out or vomiting (I can't remember which, maybe it was both) because it was so life like. Is that the future of TV?

I'm sure that some elitists pricks will buy them and pretend that they're better than the rest of the world for having them, but I really think that picture quality has got about as good as it can get so I won't be wanting one. At the moment sometimes bluray is even too much picture quality for it's own good. I've noticed that CGI and film grain are now much more visable than on dvd, and I personally think that's a problem.
