Will Polaroid ever do OLED ?

This weeks AVforums podcast said in giving feedback to the company they were told they should have downloaded an update when first plugged in, this has apparently made a big difference and Phil Hnton has said he needs to rewrite the review, so maybe wait for an update.

1 year warranty puts me off...


3 years for just £59 extra, or £119 for 5 - get it bought.

Never is a long time
Will Polaroid ever do OLED ?
It's only an OLED panel, none of the electronics from LG or anyone else is there so picture quality won't be any good at all, plus as with all cheap TVs it won't upscale well, it just stretches the picture resolution to fit 4K, it won't actually process the picture.

Bring on the mirco led sets . Then I will be a buyer . Oled has too high latency and the worry of screen burn
Ive seen how good oled can be but I would rather have a good LCD than a poor made oled . And a good oled is also just too expensive

Not sure but you might as well wait for the Blaupunkt OLED by Vestel/Beko instead, it's going to be out of this world

Oled TVs like the lg b7 have a input lag of about 22ms according to rtings so not quite sure what your on about high latency.

Burn in on this particular cheap TV as well may not be a problem because according to the downloadable manual it has settings on it that perform some kind of refresh when the TV is in standby. It has the option of that as well as a option to perform the same sort of thing but every 1000 hours but it does the cycle for much longer.


As long as static images are not on all day and night I can't see much of an issue.

It's an LG panel and the LG panels all do this (I believe). The only difference is therefore going to be the picture processing, o/s and all hardware/software around that.

Personally I would avoid until I had seen more independent reviews. These tv's have been around for a while yet there is little in the way of reviews.
Avforums are rewriting their review currently expect it done and of the week they said.
Looking forward to affordable oled/microled but I'd wait for some more reviews of this first. My TV is the only thing with a screen that isn't oled (it's plasma) and even though it's much better than lcd, there's no comparison

that's because that is a beast of a TV! panasonic where the kings of TV. I'm dreading the day my plasma dies as my choice will be a worse lcd or spending a fortune on an oled.

When I bought my 50 inch kuro, I spent more than £2k, now with same amount 65 inch LG OLED can be bought. Overall price has come fair bit down, specially with LCD/LED ones and average screen size in household getting bigger and bigger!

At 22:50 the reviewer explains that the picture was godawful, but after an update fixed a bug it is "astonishingly good". This vid was published two days ago so we await the re-review.

in their latest podcast it was revealed that they hadn't updated the unit. After updating they said all their negatives have gone and they will re review the telly and post a vid in the next week or so.

I changed my KRP-500M for an E7. As much as I loved it, it's not even close. I've not seen the electriq in action yet but I'd be surprised if it wasn't considerably better. Even the cheapest of media chips will be more powerful than TVs of 10 years ago
I've had to order it at £835 with the which? discount and 2% TCB. Mainly out of curiosity. Should be here tomorrow so will post some impessions.

ahhh and where did poor 500m go? hope you found a good place for it!

Joke aside, I think OLED is the way to go! It still comes with issues like screen burn though! I guess its more common in LG TVs than Panasonic/Sony OLED ones.

I sold it on eBay. I got £450 for it which I thought was pretty good consider I paid £2k about 10 years ago.

I've had the E7 for about 6 months now and have no screen burn issues. Then again I do keep telling the wife not to leave the Sky box showing the "this programme has ended" blue screen!
Any user reviews yet?

Or AV Forums?

What were the issues that the firmware fixed, does anyone know?

Only issue I can find is it might not be a part of the BBC 4K iPLAYER trial. So if BBC ever do 4K... it might not be possible directly, and may have to buy something in the future that does support them. They don't have any content yet anyway...4K is taking forever.

Yeah, my bad but it was only last week. However, it's something of a schoolboy error by a staff reviewer to not bother to look for an update; as many of the latest firmware updates (by most manufacturers) need to be hunted out and don't simply automatically update even with the TV set so. And to not apologize to listeners either is a bit lame. I doubt "...all their negatives..." will be discounted as no TV is perfect! It should be an interesting review when it appears in the next few weeks.
