Question Buy A New LED Television Or Wait For OLED?

Right now I have a 32 inch Irico LED TV, It is a great television but the remote was junk and I have to press on the back really hard just to change settings. This problem is not a big deal since I only play games on it and don't use the remote settings often. The sound was also horrible but it didn't matter because the headphone output allowed me to hook up computer speakers.

I was going to buy a new Television this Christmas but I don't think it is worth it. By 2014, OLED Televisions will have more competitive prices and I would buy one during Christmas 2014. I don't think it is worth buying a Television just to use it for 1 year so maybe I should wait for the OLED Televisions.

Im estimating I could get a 40-46" OLED TV by Christmas 2014 for 1500-2500$. What do you people think about this?

You won't find OLED for those prices for at least a few years, and, BTW OLED 's are highly susceptible to IR.

Good luck on that, and, personally, I wouldn't be a first buyer of a relatively new technology with no track record.

OLED has some real potential (and hangups) but this technology won't get into consumer sets at reasonable prices anytime soon.

By competitive they mean instead of 8K for a 40"to 46" display it may drop down to 6500-7K 55" will still be in the 8.5K neighborhood

Did you catch that last sentence? 31 inches for over $9k!!!

OLEDs have been around for a while and have been used in some small display sizes for military applications. Micron Technology had a spin-off that made them about 10 years back but it's defunct now. Scaling them up to larger screen sizes has been problematical. Since the individual cells are based on an organic compound, each cell is not all that stable (much less so than its inorganic counterpart which is used in lighting applications), and as ImRizzo mentioned, can be degraded by high current which not only makes it subject to IM but burned-in images as well. Don't waste time waiting for this technology to mature and come down in price.

I think you should get a new OLED just as soon as they're available-- then write very comprehensive review and let us all know what you think . . .

Myself, well I'm going hold off a few years.
