    samsung yield question?

    Sorry if I missed this in another post. I've been trying to find confirmation that Samsungs yields have "increased significantly" as stated in the tv price drop blurbs. Do we have any idea how much it increased? I can't find that information.

    I have seen various statements that yields for tv's were on the order of 10%, but that was in videophile forums and never gave it much credit.

    • I remember reading that they were at 60% a few months ago and were going to try to achieve 70% in the month of july. I believed they just introduced their tv in july. Korea Times just recently reported that Samsung reduced their price due to yield improvements. So one might assume that they achieved their 70% goal or at least assume that it's better than 60%.

    • I haven't seen or heard anything about what "increased significantly" and somehow recall that they were at 50 or 60% yield. That they would say this and drop the price.........very public for Samsung..........must be partially to slap LG and partially to get attention for this product. They surely aren't kidding around given the publicity and so my guess is that their production ramp is going to be faster than any of the analysts expect......but that's purely speculation
