LG to bring 15-inch OLED TV to Austria in May LG Electronics has announced that it will offer up a 15-inch organic light-emitting diode (OLED) television in Austria in May. This will be the world's largest OLED television available when it launches. The LG 15EL9500 is only 3mm thick and provides an impressive contrast ratio of 10,000,000:1, response time of 0.001ms and what LG describes as "extremely low power consumption".
"The OLED technology uses an organic material that can apply to very thin and even flexible surfaces. Therefore, the 15EL9500 is one of the slimmest TVs in our portfolio and is ideal for any trend-setter," said Reinhard Huebner, Retail Marketing, LG Electronics Austria (translated from German).



The LG 15EL9500 is technically HD Ready, capable of 1366x768 display. It consumers one-third of the power that an LCD screen of the same size consumes. It features TruMotion 100Hz technology and a USB 2.0 port for connecting removable media. It can play back DivX (in HD), MP3 or JPEG images.

As with any OLED television, the price is steep. It will go on sale in May in Austria for a staggering 1,999.

Seriously why are companies wasting their money on these over priced OLED that no one would want to buy? Why buy one of these little things when you can get like a 42' for the same price? They should just wait until the price of the technology drops.

LOL, no kidding! It is just ridiculous, but I guess is only as ridiculous as the people that will buy into this.
