    If you could give me either one of those technologies now, with a flawless monitor for a cheap price, sure I'd buy it.

    ATM Samsung's VA is the closest but their monitors have tons of issues and MicroLED is minimum years away. I have 2017 65" LG OLED now that I game on fairly regularly and I don't have burn in. Presumably image retention has gotten better since 2017, so I'd assume a 2021 screen would have far less issues. If I can get an OLED at a reasonable size that lasts me 3 years of gaming before it burns in that would be fine for me. I'd spend up to $1500 on that.

    No it's insane that the 42" is likely to be more expensive than a 55". Yes I now why. It's still insane from a consumers perspective.

    Comparing sizes of TVs as the end-reasoning as to why something is expensive or not is quite ridiculous.

    At that point i guess i can go get some less then $300 4K projector from aliexpress, get a large sheet, stretch it out to over 100 inches, and say there's no reason any TV should cost more then that.

    Different technologies have different costs associated with them and different qualities for your money. I'm sure if they made an 80" 4K super cheap quality TN 6-bit panel with almost zero viewing angle, it could be $300-500, for an "80" 4K TV"

    Quality and costs of technology matter. Even to the consumer.

    I am talking about 42" 48" and 55" OLED TV's from the same manufacturer and you bring up projectors? Tell me again, what's ridiculous?

    I kinda sorta agree with you, that you wouldn't expect a 48" or potentially the 42" to be more than the 55" but outside of them inflating the cost of the 55" to cover the losses on the smaller, I don't really see a solution.

    It seems like LG is going to further segment it's OLED product line going forward, so this may not even be the case when the 42" launches.

    I'm all for OLED displays. 42" is a bit big as a monitor for me but something like 32/35" 120Hz with 800 nits peak (at least) would be stunning.

    Your notion, obviously?

    Fine, same manufacturer?

    LG HU70LA 4K, 140" Wall, sheet, projector screen, whatever you want, $1800-2000

    You ask about projector as if that's not exactly your statement: That it doesn't matter the technology behind the screen, only screen size matters. AKA if you can get a 140" 4K LG Experience for $2000, how does a 65" for $2000 make sense?

    If your idea of cherry picking results is your reasoning for anything/everything, then it again shows your fault. A projector, just because it's not a physical LCD/etc. screen, doesn't change the fact its purpose is literally the same.

    The technology behind the screen/display/etc. matter, and will change the cost, trying to say otherwise, is what is ridiculous.

    You have missed the point completely clearly as you're still talking about projectors. Cherry picking? We were talking about OLED displays ffs.

    He's just saying that LG makes the same model OLED in various sizes but the smaller sizes are more expensive - which is counter-intuitive, right? It would be like if Acer released a 27" panel with specific specs for $500 then released a 24" with the exact same specs for $700. It just isn't what you'd expect.

    It's different because A. I imagine it's more difficult to get 4K OLED at a smaller, 48/42" density (keep in mind phone panels are a different type of OLED technology) and the market for 48/42" TVs is significantly smaller than 55, so the upfront cost of creating SKU at that size is spread out over far less units.

    I think that LG is just double dipping with the 42-48" OLED monitors.
    They know they appeal to gamers.

    I am actually thinking of getting one.

    Well, I just saw that there will be like 1080p OLED for some asus? 13.3" screens from Samsung, so...there is hope for something bigger(1440p at least) for normal monitors...
    I really could take some 1440p 24-27" screen with at least 120Hz refresh rate. 400-700e ...not 1000, as for such a price I can find OLED TV from previous years...
