    With the advent of of LG's new EM9600 OLED is it time to upgrade? and is the $8000 price tag a price worth paying?

    No. There's nothing on television worth watching.

    That TV is one of the sexiest pieces of tech I have seen in a very long while. While that TV is unparalleled in almost every way, if you are into 3D, it still only comes with passive 3D support. If money was no object though, I'd get one of those babies as soon as I could.

    They claim that OLED TV's should start to move into current LED TV's price brackets around 2016. So, as with any pricing, the question is how affordible a price tag of $8k is for you.

    I think even if you've got a few quid, people don't like spending money unnecessarily.

    But don't worry, word on the grapevine is it's set to come down to $4000 approx 12 - 16 months after launch. Also by this time Samsung should have launched it's own OLED tv which will give a good opportunity for comparison.

    My biggest concern with OLED television is its lifespan. OLEDs have around 14,000 hours of lifetime to half original brightness (five years at 8 hours a day). I mean, it's not extremely short, but if my family decides to buy this expensive tv, I would want to own it for ten years without problem.

    As with all new technology it's probarbly not perfect to start with but it'll get better, probrably you could wait a while, save yourself some money, have more choice of different models and by then they might have managed to increase the useable life expectancy.
