OLED TV's To wait or not to wait?
CNETS Executive Editor David Carnoy gives you his thoughts.
I'm personally waiting for this technology, this or SED if the patent issues ever get resolved. Ever since i heard of SED i decided to wait because all other flat's just don't do it like a CRT but the SED comes close. Now with OLED it seems they also will come very close to CRT quality so why with these two emerging technologies, which with any luck will be out in 6-8 months, would anyone get a 1000-2000 dollar set that will be far beneath what is coming out in such a short time.
OLED's are capable of bending right? I want to roll up my TV like a poster lol. The future is closer than we think.
Sounds awesome, but I bet it's going to be extremely expensive like all new technologies until the manufacturing cost comes down.
for OLED to come out in a size that you can put in your living room at a price comparable to today's LCD/Plasma/DLP TVs then you better hope your current TV will last you a while more. Personally, I think you could buy a brand new TV now, and just when it's time to replace THAT one, OLED might be a competitive technology in the market.
by the time this comes out itll be acouple of years..no point in holding off - get ur sony XBR LCD and in 5 years itll be time to upgrade and then get OLED and which hopefully will be out and ready for the consumer
I'm certainly more than pleased w/ my XBR3 right now and by the time these OLED sets are on the market and reasonably priced it will be time to replace my 32" Trinitron w/ this XBR3 and upgrade my XBR3 to an OLED set. Although, the Samsung Pavv does have me thinking about upgrading w/in the next couple years, Lol. Seriously though, you're better of upgrading now and looking into an OLED years down the road. Because even if they do hit the market it's easily going to be a good 5 years before they're even semi reasonably priced... Obviously if money isn't an object then why don't you already have an LCD or Plasma?
I'm content with my 1080p DLP............for now
currently i have a gateway 24" 1920X1200 90 degree rotating monitor.
I am pretty content with it for now, but it would just be better when OLED tvs come out to get a really nice sony, samsung, sharp or pioneer tv, being that the prices would probably go down.
After seeing the best tvs from those companys, oled doesn't really interest me.
thats awesome, i have same monitor, it was actually pretty cheap i got mine for i think 250$ in my package online
i payed full price for it. I think its like 680 dollars or something.
Considering the price, it works pretty well.
If it's like $10k hell now.
If it's around $2-3k...I'll bite.
going to start at something like 10k or 5k
Remember this is a jump compared to tvs out now.
I wont have the money to buy anyway, but those TVs sure look nice.....
I am going to wait for the back lit LCD's to come out, the Oled are organisms... who knows what they will do to you at night when your asleep! The back lit lcds will look awesome , so long blacks being grey!
shouldn`t they be better then LCD+plasma and cost less? =)
Or you can just purchase the last great CRT ever made...The 34 widescreen HD sony xbr970!!! You can still find them brand new but they are dissapearing fast! I just recently bought one and if the weight doesn't bother you (200lbs) than this is the perfect set. But I have been looking at newer tech and currently thinking about trying the new 40 inch samsung with the Onkyo 875 AVR dvd player. HQV processing is out of this world. Makes standard dvds look almost hi def.
I agree. I have this tv, and even though it's a beast in terms of weight, my friends who have lcd/plasma screens still love coming over to play games/watch movies because of how great the picture is.
I love new technology, but this tv is still my fav.
I use a CRT as well and the only thing I've disliked about it is getting it up to the 2nd floor where my apt is lol.
