Yes but no longer in the US market. Japanese TV business is hurting. I believe Sony is the only Japanese TV maker still in the US market. I think all the other ones you see in the stores are Chinese or others licensing the names.

I don't think this is true. All of these companies sell TVs in the U.S:

Japanese: Sony, Sharp, Toshiba, Sanyo

South Korean: Samsung, LG

American: Vizio, Westinghouse, Insignia

Chinese: TCL, Hisense

Let me rephrase...I believe all the Japanese brands in the US (except Sony) are actually Chinese or other companies licensing the name of the Japanese companies...I know for a fact that Sharp is no longer in the US...those Sharp TVs are either Hisense or TCL (not sure which one)

I have now owned this LG OLED 55" TV for 3 days and I absolutely LOVE IT! Best picture EVER! I could never imagine going back to an LCD. The contrast, clarity and black levels are astounding, as are the viewing angles. There is zero input lag on 1080p video games, and 1080p content in general looks amazing, too. My only complaint is broadcast 1080p cable, which looks like crap most of the time, but that's because cable TV is compressed. But uncompressed 1080p content looks amazing. As for 4K HDR content, so far I have only seen compressed 4K HDR, and even that looks AMAZING! I can't even stress it on here enough. I have never in my life seen a better looking video quality, ever. The black levels are so amazing that in a dark room, the ending credits to a movie look like white text floating in the dark.

As for the lifespan of the TV, LG said that in order for the screen to start losing it's brightness, you would have to use it for 5 hours a day for 54 years!

Of course it will. It would be damned unfair if it didn't.

That LGOLED55E6P OLED tv has a lot of different prices posted, some as much as $1000 lower than the price you are quoting.
