LG 55EM960V 55” OLED TV

Like your cassette Walkman, your VCR and your Palm Pilot, your flatscreen TV is now painfully out of date. Sorry about that.

Don’t fret, though – the future looks pretty damn good. The latest in image projection is OLED, which stands for organic light-emitting diode. It’s tech that’s been used in phones and tablets for a while, but this is the first TV to make the leap.

It means an incredibly vivid picture and super-sharp contrast, as well as a ludicrously thin screen – just 4mm. It’s so petite, in fact, that there’s no room for any of the usual inputs and stuff to go on the back, so they sit in a separate box under the screen itself. LG predict that, in a few years, everyone will have one of these – but there’s a hefty price tag if you want to stay ahead of the curve.

If you still think we’re yanking your chain about a 4mm screen (we would never do such a thing), you can see the set for yourself at John Lewis or Harrods from July, when they will also be available to pre-order for delivery in time for Christmas. Only Fools and Horses has never looked so good.
