I’m just gonna go find a cash machine.

Get your minds out of the gutter!

I’ll need the coin for LG’s forthcoming 55-inch OLED display. According to ubergizmo and , these puppies are going to retail for a cool eight grand.

If you’re wondering, is an Organic Light-Emitting Diode really worth the premium over current LED and LCD TVs, I’m sure you’re not alone. But the “is it worth it” question has probably been asked about every device and gadget that’s been released over the last 30 years.

The fate of OLED is still up in the air, but its merits should become clearer in the coming weeks and months. LG plans to feature its OLED display at the 2012 Consumer Electronics Show. Dennis Burger, hometechtell’s Editor and Fearless Leader, will be on the scene in Las Vegas, so be sure to check back for a firsthand report from the trade show floor.
