Ever wonder what it's like to treat yourself to a $10,000 TV? We recently acquired LG's 55EA9800 curved OLED (organic light emitting diode) display—turns out, the curve and the price tag aren't the only surprising things about this panel. This television is so incredibly thin! Its stand is so weird! In-house TV expert Josh Fields is here to let you in on the fun.

Does this post sound familiar? That's because a week ago, we got our hands on Samsung's KN55S9C, the only other OLED TV on the American market right now. Testing easily confirmed what everyone could see with their own eyes: OLED TV tech is King.

We previewed it earlier this summer, but keep an eye out for a full lab review of the much-anticipated LG 55EA9800—coming soon.
