LG 55-inch curved OLED TV priced for Europe After making the TV available in the U.S. in June, LG has rolled out its 55-inch OLED TV for Europe.
Starting in Germany, the high-end device will sell for 8,999 euros, with the company unveiling more countries in the Q4.

OLED screens consist of thousands of self-emitting diodes, providing brighter and better quality pictures while consuming less powered than a comparably sized LCD screen with a backlight. Production is more complex than LCD panels however, meaning that for the moment they must remain toys for high-end consumers.

"LG is fully committed to delivering the most advanced OLED TVs to European customers," said In-kyu Lee, vice president and head of the TV division at LG Electronics' Home Entertainment Company. "With next generation display technology and an ultra-thin curved design, our CURVED OLED TV represents the beginning of a new era in home entertainment."

An OLED TV will definitely be my next TV, but not for at least 4-6 years, until they work out the kinks and price goes down. Seems as if they are just releasing concepts with a high price tag, and not actual final models to be mass produced.

In the UK years ago they sold as 'Goldstar'.
I remember buying one of their VHS decks, it was (by some margin too, at the time) the best spec/cost machine I could find.
Great value and although undoubtedly not the last word in quality it was very reliable & was a lot of (decent) bang for buck.
