CES Picks #2 (LG's 55-Inch OLED TV)

LG has announced that its 55-Inch OLED HDTV will be available in the U.S. in March for a cool $12,000. This is more expensive than the international pricing, which is set at 11 million won (just over $10,000) in South Korea, and also a bit later. The HDTV is set to arrive at Korean retailers in February.
The OLED TV itself, official model number 55EM9700, is just 4 millimeters thick and weighs just 22 pounds, thanks to the new OLED technology. Short for organic light-emitting diode, OLED displays are comprised of a layer of organic matter that emits light when charged with electricity. This eliminates the need for a backlight, allowing for deeper black levels and thinner, lighter displays.
OLED displays are relatively common in smaller sizes, perhaps most notably in the Playstation Vita's 5-inch OLED screen.
