I just find it strange that panasonic have an un-released 4K OLED tv and samsung haven't, i hadn't realized that technology had moved that far forward, i had assumed it would be a few years off.
Samsung have got one, just not released it yet:
I'm expecting big things of these, I think the Sony 4K TVs are pretty good.

Yep, we should have some new reference TVs and I think some will get 5 stars despite their price tag.
It is Over! Like the Kuro! As the saying goes....the best do not aways become THE survival of the fittest!
The future of TV rest on LED 1080p/LED 4k UHD....and OLED - embrace it. I told you so.
I hope we hear something different on this thread as of now as it has become a plasma dominated affair.

I've just looked at the date and yes i did miss it.
Why is my quoting going all pear shaped.
A 4k panasonic 56 inch oled set when released is going to be the price of 3 zx60s! I do not think there is a market in the UK ever! Super never.
How many 1080p Oled have been sold since its release in the UK? Where are the 65inch sets?
The immediate TV future will be 4k LED UHD for the masses. I am not even going to entertain gazing into the crystalball of when Panasonic will make a return with OLED 4k oled.
It is a fools dream.
The idea that Panasonic will keep churning out plasmas and making losses till oled becomes affordable is a child's thinking. It was never going to happen.If you are plasma owner you are going to miss out on 4k which ever way you look at it. It wil be worse than quitting smoking having been on 20 a day. LEDs are not going to suit you....

At the risk of rehashing a debate that's been had many times in this forum, there is no 4k content available to watch in the UK, and self evidently it's not possible to 'miss out' on something that isn't there to begin with.
Personally I'm more than happy to entertain upgrading to 4k when there's actually something to watch on it, but to upgrade prior to that is a waste of time and (more importantly) money.

mr malarky we are one day short of november 2013 of coarse their won't be any hardware or anything to watch in 4K, 2014 will be an exciting year imo.
If that comes to fruition then its great news - I'm not anti-4k; why would anyone be against something that improves picture quality? I just think the reality needs to catch up with the hype before people start putting their money down.
Looked at an LG and Samsung set running native 4k demo content earlier in the week, and while some shots didn't look any better than a decent 1080p picture (eg planes flying against a blue sky etc), some other scenes such as the Eiffel Tower at night were genuinely impressive when seen up close.
I can see tomorrows headlines in Private eye....
'Global Warming Averted.....as inefficent power hungry plasma TV ends in production'
I genuinely don't understand, why so much hatred of a display technology?
Were you bullied by a plasma TV as a child??
I don't see any hate been expressed by z058261 on Plasma TV. The TVs consume a heck lot more joules than an Led set.A widely known fact.
He turned it into a satirical humour. Why are you even replying?? You have losed the high ground on the subject.
My headline would be as follows: Plasma TV finally lay to rest after failed resuscitation.RIP.
Well I'm still totally in love with my first – and undoubtedly my last – venture in to plasma TV: the TX-P42GT30B.
Feeling very sad that I won’t have the opportunity to upgrade in the future but we all knew it was coming. Feeling very sad, but R.I.P. Panasonic PDP.
