At CES 2016 LG's signature series (55"-77") looked stunning and also supports HDR. OLED panels have improved with brighter displays and a wider color gamut. They also figured out how to make all the subpixel diodes last the same amount of time as well as other technical improvements. Panasonic has OLED TVs for 2016 and Sony may follow as well, which will help to bring down the price and help with even more improvements.
"LG's OLED TVs deliver the best picture quality of any TV we've ever tested, and in 2016 the company is expanding the lineup even further." -CNET
"If there were any lingering doubts about OLED being the true successor to plasma, CES 2016 shattered them. Across the show floor, new OLED TV models from LG and Panasonic managed to outshine all the competition" -THE VERGE
I do not like LCD and would not choose one over OLED but I must admit some of the best using HDR, IPS, Quantum Dot and local dimming technologies were pretty impressive (for an LCD!). Panasonic, LG and Samsung models all looked great.
mrdavis, you're not such a bad guy after all! Thanks for catching me up on the current OLED offerings. My biggest objection to the early Sammys was that they made everything look like a cartoon. Incredibly artificial looking. I have a decided predilection toward the film-look and not the video-look, and those early Sammys were just, well, awful looking to me - the video-look on steroids. However, I saw it at BB and they are certainly not known for presenting their products in a flattering manner. The sales guy that schmoozed me while I was looking was their senior TV department guy and he seemed really proud of it and told me that he'd personally overseen the tweaking of the picture. I uncharacteristically bit my tongue, thanked him for his time and left the store. I am encouraged that OLED is making progress toward being a worthy replacement for our beloved plasma screens.
Hey I really am a nice guy just ask my friends, I have all the friends money can buy!!!
Sounds like the salesman got carried away with his color and motion adjustments. You can always set the motion adjustments (blur and judder) to your taste or completely turn them off so it should not be a problem. I think OLEDs will be an excellent replacement for plasma, the picture quality looks fantastic.
