Surprise – it looks amazing.
LG showed off a 31 inch OLED television over the weekend, and it's no surprise that the set is absolutely stunning. It's capable of producing all existing colors and according to LG it can handle the gamut of dark colors regardless of your viewing angle.
The new TV sports what LG is calling Infinite Contrast Ratio. It's a bit silly, but it does finally put the nail in the coffin of the contrast ratio wars, unless Samsung's new LED LCDs come with Infinite Contrast Ratio +1.
LG's 3D capable OLED comes with a fancy mounting bracket, a cool design and measures in at 2.9 mm thick. It's all very impressive as you might imagine.
While making bigger and better OLED sets is exciting, the real winner is going to be the company that makes OLEDs cheap enough that the average consumer can shell out for them. Sadly, it doesn't look like LG's model will pull that off.
