Re: Panasonic and Sony to Offer OLED TVs by 2014

Granted the OLED models will be expensive like anything (similar to the current 4K tv's), but if you had the money, would you rather get an OLED or a 4K TV?

For me it would be OLED. I've been enthralled by the technology since 2007, so much so that I bought stock back then in the company that holds most of the patents (Universal Display). My research leads me to believe this is one of the few advancements that has virtually no downside. With a multitude of phones already using OLED displays it seems like only a matter of time before it becomes mainstream.

Wow. Buying stock in the company as well. Impressive.

My only concern is the longevity of OLED on such as huge screen - say 55 inch or higher.

On the smaller sizes (tablet/phone's), OLED is good but what about the big screens??

It's difficult to gauge longevity at this point in the product lifecycle, but so far it doesn't appear to be an issue.

From what I have seen with new technology, it would be best to get the second generation OLED displays.. The first roll out will have lot of issues that will be worked out and perfected by the time the second generation is rolled out. But of course, if you have to have it then you have to get it bugs and all.

Actually, what's shipping now is the 2nd generation consumer products. The original devices were available a few years ago, so it's time to buy!

I am game as long as the price is right!

To me for OLED to be successful, it has to be priced right.. No point making it high dollar and nobody can afford it.

Re: Panasonic and Sony to Offer OLED TVs by 2014

I am a little concerned about the burnin and/or uneven wear characteristics that OLED's can have... has this been improved upon at all?

I've never hear that OLED's had either of those problems. I'd be interested in reading whatever it is that gave you that impression.
