Sony 27" Prototype OLED Display
- Product Name: 27" Prototype OLED Display
- Manufacturer: Sony
- Review Date: January 15, 2008 11:19
- MSRP: $Yeah right
- First Impression: Pretty Cool
Sony was showing off not only their ~$2500 11" OLED displays but a 27" prototype at CES this year. The 27" supposedly sports a greater than 100% NTSC color reproduction, 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio, and 1080p resolution. Of course, at this point, the 11" is out of reach of most people so we can only guess at what a 27" will run. Probably a Porsche. The display looked amazing but we didn't look too close and not just because of the railing. No, it's more like looking at that super hot girl in the club. You know you don't have a chance, so don't get your hopes up. At this point, we're only hoping (probably in vain) that someone will come up with a cheap way of manufacturing these displays.

Do you get the feeling these guys are just showing off for it's own sake?

Samsung didn't talk price (heck, they didn't have a price tag on a single item in their booth) but many times these tech showcases are just stuff they are exploring.
So what kind of price differential are we talking about here? Did Samsung actually have an MSRP for the 31" model? If mass production were to indeed start in 2010 of mid to large sized models, what price point is Samsung shooting for and what was the maximum size they were touting?
