OLED TVs have consistently proven to be some of the best-performing sets money can buy. The only problem? They've always been incredibly expensive. Today LG is working to remedy that situation, issuing price cuts for some of its top 2015 models, including the flat EF9500 and its curved sibling, the EG9600.
This is great news for anyone who's been eyeing LG's impressive lineup. And not only are the prices dropping, but the company is also including a $1,000 rebate for the top 4K models, further sweetening the deal. LG claims that the price adjustments are due in part to improved manufacturing efficiencies, but they also seem like a move to increase OLED's presence in the TV market.
Below you'll find a breakdown of the price adjustments for the 2015 models, including both 4K and 1080p TVs.
