Hi all, I'm very intrigued by the new organic LED (OLED) flat screen technology. The picture looks pretty amazing and the screens are incredibly thin, but I was wondering what other people thought about it. Is this really the next big thing in flat panel TVs?

About the next big thing as plasma was 10 years ago. Flat TV ... nice ... $20000 ... not so nice.

11 inches ... looks nice ... $2500 price tag ... not so nice. A 27" one in the $10K range ... it's plasma all over again. Posted Image

Perhaps in 5 years, the stuff will get down to a point where people seriously look at it. And don't forget it's weaknesses right now too. Relatively short life span compared to LCD and Plasma. About 25% as long. Also has burn in issues so in many ways behaves like a plasma.

Michael TLV - have you seen one of the FET displays? I'm curious about what your opinion is from your perspective.. (I saw one at NAB this April, and heard that they had also been at.... HPA? Or was it SigGraph?) Leo

The CES 2012 show was dominated by the Organic Light Emitting Diode TV (oled). It showed promise by LG and Samsung to really take hold this year. Just as you said "the picture quality is great", It really is. Because it's made of organic material (live), it previously had a life span of about 5 years. I'm not sure if they have made this better but, most people get a new TV by then anyway. Nothing today compares to the picture quality, and again, at the CES show, it dominated the crowds.
