Maybe smiths city have made a mistake on the pricing... just read an article on pc world that have the c7 55 inch listed at$4200 nz





I think the article is just reposted from PC World Australia - the reviwer is based in Sydney.


But dang, $4200 is only 25% more than I paid for a 32" wide screen CRT back in the early 2000's, and certainly more screen area :-)



My thoughts are no longer my own and is probably representative of our media-controlled government

Yes the OLED screens are pretty expensive but they are very good panels. The picture quality is simply outstanding (I think @sbiddle would agree too) and they really stand out when compared to other TVs in the same store. 


If I'm not mistaken, LG are the ones who make their OLED panels available for other TV manufacturers too, so a "Sony OLED" could possibly have an LG panel in it.





don't forget, the physical panel is only a part of the modern digital tv.


the other important parts are the electronics and software to drive the panel.


this can mean the same panel will look different in different tv's.
