How to buy LG’s Star Wars ultra-limited-edition C2 OLED TV (and how much it costs)

In late May, LG announced that it would release an ultra-limited Star Wars edition of its impressive 65-inch C2 OLED TV. At the time, all we knew were a few design elements and that only 501 units were being sold (a nod to Darth Vader’s leadership of the Empire’s 501st clone army division).

Today, LG is announcing that the C2 OLED evo 65-inch Star Wars edition will be available exclusively on LG’s site for a Force-defying price of $3,000. While our review of the C2 puts it near the top of our list for OLED TVs, the Star Wars edition will run you nearly a full $500 more than the standard 65-inch C2, so you’ll have to be a pretty die-hard Star Wars fan to justify the upcharge.

You’ll be getting some flashy design touches, of course, including an imperial logo on the back of the TV, stealthy, glossy touches around the bezels that recall Darth Vader’s helmet, a Star Wars-branded remote, and some software features like Empire-skinned navigation screens and the sound of Vader’s breathing upon startup.

But, the special-edition numbered certificate and the overall collectible nature of this unit are probably what’s actually worth the price for fans of the franchise. Either way, you can be sure that watching any Star Wars content, including the new Obi-Wan Kenobi series, will look great on a TV as capable as the C2.

The Star Wars C2 OLED TV will go on sale at 11 a.m. ET on Tuesday, June 21, so mark your calendars and get ready to head to the LG site to snag yours. May the Force (and server bandwidth) be with you.

LG’s massive 325-inch DVLED TV costs more than three Ferrari SF90s
LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema TV.

If you've got a hankering for a huge TV and you have a correspondingly huge budget, you now have a new option: LG's new line of LG DVLED Extreme Home Cinema TVs are available in sizes ranging from a mild 81-inches all the way up to a gigantic 325 inches. LG's prices are equally gargantuan: You'll pay $70,000 for the smallest model, but the biggest model is exponentially more expensive at $1,700,000 -- about three times the price of the SF90, the most powerful Ferrari road car ever produced. If those numbers don't faze you, you can order your DVLED Extreme Home Cinema model starting today.

The TVs use direct-view LED (DVLED) technology, similar to the kind used by Samsung's The Wall and Sony's Crystal LED displays, where individual microLEDs are used for each pixel, offering many of the self-illuminating advantages of OLED TVs, but with greater brightness, more colors, ultrawide viewing angles, and of course, huge screen sizes.  Unlike regular LG TVs, the DVLED Extreme Home Cinema are aimed at the high-end luxury home market, so they won't be sold in regular retail locations. Instead, these displays are available exclusively through a custom installation dealer program.

What is OLED TV? The ultra-thin display technology fully explained
LG G1 Gallery Series OLED TV.

If you’ve been considering a new TV, you’ve likely come across mentions of OLED TV in stores and online. And if you’ve walked into a Best Buy or a Costco and seen an OLED TV sitting next to a QLED TV or a regular LED TV, it might not have been immediately apparent how and why these three TV types are different from each other. After all, under the bright lights of a showroom floor, three or four 65-inch 4K TVs sitting next to each other can start to look the same. We’ve been there too. But if you give us a few minutes of your time, we’ll make you an OLED TV expert with as little jargon as possible. You still may decide an OLED TV isn’t for you, but you’ll make that decision knowing all of the facts.
What is OLED TV?
OLED stands for organic light-emitting diode. It’s tempting to think that the only thing that separates an LED (light-emitting diode) TV from an OLED TV is that “organic” word, but there’s actually more to the story.
Backlights versus self-lit pixels

To really understand how an OLED TV is distinct from an LED TV or even a QLED (quantum dot light-emitting diode) TV, we need to talk about how a TV generates the light that makes its way to your eyes.
