I agree Andrew, I am in the market for a large display and would love 4K but at this time will likely put the 80" Sharp on the wall for a couple years and wait.

That extra 4 inches isn't going to be worth what I'm imagining to be an additional 10+ grand over the Sharp. With proper calibration (yes the Sharp can be calibrated) both should produce similar images for as bright as OLED may be natively, once calibrated it has to shape up and fly right with the rest of 'em. Meaning an LED vs LCD vs Plasma vs OLED brightness fight should end in a draw once each is calibrated to the same standards. The same should be true for all other picture controls such as color, contrast etc. If its not, it doesn't mean one technology is better than the other, it means that particular set is garbage.

Light uniformity is one area where each tech could be judged on its own merits as is black levels I suppose but then the battle goes from being between OLED and LED to OLED and plasma.

The new LG Ultra-Definition TV has a 3840 x 2160 resolution, four times the resolution of 1920 x 1080 -- at least with 2D content. With 3D content, its passive approach cuts the resolution to 3840 x 1080 for each eye -- so at least you now get the full 1080 per eye. With the current crop of passive 3DTVs, I can easily see the horizontal line structure and diminished resolution. The LG 84-incher looked much better with 3D than the current models. I stared at it for a while and could not see the line structure at all. So, if nothing else, it brings that benefit to the table.--

It looks like the LG OLED 55 inch TV (model 55EM9600) will be available in May for around $8K ..
Wonder if it is worth that much and whether it will sell?
