    After having bought a 65" OLED from a 60" Plasma the upgrade is not worth it for the money spend, your better off forking out the extra for the 77" IMO or buying a cheaper 65" to make do while the bigger ones come down in price.

    Well yeah that's subjective. I went from a 70" led to a 65" oled and loved the better quality. More than happy to sacrifice a few screen inches for the oled image brilliance.

    from what i am seeing 2020 is a placeholder year for OLED, the manufacturers seem to be trotting out 2019 models with basic improvements, i'm hoping 2021 will bring some nice new models.

    The 65's do go on special with relative frequency, but I'm not sure you will see many before crissy. I wish I could justify the 77" : (

    He should be able to get the 77 for $6500? I got mine for $6550 that included a $500 Good Guys gift card.

    I ended up getting the rear LG spk8s 140 watt speakers for my LG SN8YG 440 watt dolby atmos sound bar and now the surround sound really comes to life especially with dolby atmos content. Only paid 160 bux for them. With the LG C9 55 inch oled its a decent setup. I might start to grow my UHD 4K HDR Dolby Atmos bluray collection now.

    I'd really like the 77" so it feel like a decent upgrade for 58", The 65" in the store doesn't feel that much bigger than my 58" but i think this is mainly due to the large bezel around the 58" Plasma thats not their on the 65" OLED. It'll come down to how much the 77" drop too and if their are any other large purchases i have to make between know and xmas. But once i buy one i'll be unlikely to upgrade anytime soon, had my Plasma for 10years I can't imagine I'd upgrade the OLED unless it broke.

    Couple of years for retail. Microled is already available to me from LG and Samsung but only in very large sizes. The next gen of iPhone apparently is going to be microled.. cannot confirm yet

    I thought the trouble was making the LEDs small enough, hence why they are only available for mammoth screens. I'd really doubt they would get the density low enough for iPhones any time soon.

    Prototypes exist that i saw a few years ago.They can get it small enough but the cost and the ROI on production process is not yet there

    Can someone please tag me when 75" OLED TVs are available at a reasonable price.

    Currently using a 10yo Panasonic 65" Plasma FHD. If I'm going to upgrade the TV, then I may as well get a larger one.

    Been eyeing on large OLED but unlike other electronics, prices have been very slow to drop.

    I should have said 75"+

    Ideally I'd get a 82" or 85" :D

    I'm thinking $4k so I think may be waiting a long time lol. Fortunately still have my 65" plasma.

    The prices of large plasma's and LED's fell very rapidly after they were introduced. This sharp decline in price doesn't seem to apply to OLEDs.

    That's because there's still only one mass producer of large OLED panels (LG). With a virtual monopoly, prices will stay high. This will change when the next big thing comes (micro LED)...
