Samsung expects to price their upcoming 55 inch OLED TV at $9,000.
Your previous statement claims they do not exist. Now you're saying they are very rare in a usable size. That's inconsistent.

I have the Sony XEL-1. It's an older model. 2008, I think.

If you're looking into warranty extensions, I suggest squaretrade.

On a Samsung, I don't think you would need it. On the other hand it usually ends up being a replacement plan after the manufacturers warranty is over. I bought a plan about 5 yrs ago and when the TV went bad, it sat unrepaired for 30 days. Once the 30 day mark was hit, they sent out a gift card based on the specs and not what I paid for it. They told to cut off the power cord and mail the cord to them and dispose of the TV.

I do not consider the OLED an LED TV, because it is not marketed as such. But purely on a technical basis - I agree with you. It uses LEDs to produce display pixels.

Conveniently contradicting yourself, again?

Let's just put out the facts here to avoid confusion.
  • LED TVs exist.
  • OLED TVs are LED TVs.
  • OLED TVs product the better blacks and dark matter detail than Plasma TVs.
