RE: Does anyone own an OLED TV?

Considering LG as a cheap brand and writing it off would be a mistake. It's the 2nd largest manufacturer of LCD panels also found in TVs from other manufacturers like Sony and Panasonic. Currently, it is the only company who has been able to manufacture OLED TVs at a viable price, and have patented it.

RE: Does anyone own an OLED TV?

This report claims that LG is world's largest LCD TV and panel manufacturer, surpassing even Samsung:

People seem to be disrespecting LG for no very good reason. There really isn't much difference, in all aspects including black level, of my much-maligned (especially by me! Smile ) £1,300 LG 60PZ950T television in the kitchen and my generally acclaimed £2,300 Samsung PS64D8000 in the parlour. Both calibrated on the same day in July 2013 by Stephen Withers.

It's very simple; I'm not buying a Panasonic. Samsung plasma is hard to find. More importantly, I don't change TVs frequently so makes sense for me to go for 4K. Breaking bad is one of the programmes I would like to watch in 4K.

 

Streaming Breaking Bad in 4k? Seems unlikely. Even if you get it to stream without buffering I can't see how the quality will end up better than watching the blu ray.

Breaking bad is coming in 4K in June on Netflix. Smile

I can get upto 76Mbps broadband in the new house, which is more than adequate for a good quality stream, hopefully.

RE: Does anyone own an OLED TV?

I know it is. No one on the discussions I read seemed optimistic about the prospects of streaming it properly, so good luck. Sure you'll let us know how you get on. Will it stream the DTS-HD soundtrack?
