    Samsung Forced To Buy LCD TV Panels From LG

    from forbes,
    "today via Bloomberg that Samsung has apparently signed up to buy LCD TV panels from its arch rival.

    According to ‘people with direct knowledge of the matter’, Samsung was driven into the arms of LG Display Co. when its preferred supplier of some of its LCD TV panels, Sakai Display Products (a joint venture between Foxconn and Sharp Corp), decided to drastically cut back on its supply of the relatively large LCD screens required for TVs.


    Sakai has previously supplied an estimated 4 million large LCD panels a year to Samsung for use in TVs, so you can instantly see the extent of the hole that Samsung’s TV division would have been faced with by Sakai’s decision to ramp back large LCD panel supplies."
    Main:
    Samsung UN75F8000 LED TV, NAD T-777 (7.2 Receiver), Oppo 103 Blu Ray Player, Sony PS4 Gaming Console, Panamax MR-5100 Surge Protection, 7 Paradigm Reference series 8" in ceiling speakers (AMS-150R) - 30 degree tilting speakers, 2 Paradigm SE Subs. Pictures here.
