2013 is the year that we finally get OLED TVs in decent sizes at not terribly ridiculous prices. The 9,999 pounds or approximately $13,000 that LG wants for its 55 inch set will set you back bit, but it's a big step from the $2,500 11-inch OLED that Sony first put on the market. Deliveries in the UK will start in July. LG is going to be shipping this set to US retailers later on this month, and pricing is set at $12,000 even.
It doesn't take a visionary to say that in the very near future, we'll be able to watch the same video on any screen in our home. We're close as it is, but we're not quite there. LG's latest reveal gives us a look at what this might look like in a 4K home.

We've been hearing about the upcoming OLED displays for years now, and it almost seemed like the technology was going to be killed off before it even started. Thankfully, a few companies are pushing forward with OLED sets, including LG, which has just invested $655 million into the tech.

Hisense is among those jumping on the 4K technology boat and they're bringing a new set with a range of sizes. Those looking for a more standard set can pick up a 65 inch version of the XT900, while those looking for more can step it up to 84. If you're ready to go all out and you've got the space for it, Hisense also has a 110 inch screen available.
We can all agree on a few things: UHDTVs look great, the massive sizes make them even more appealing, and that there absolutely needs to be content to watch on them. Despite the good points, that lack of content combined with high prices left a question as to just how well they'll sell.
