Default OMG, Organic OLED!!!

Wow, I just got a new copy of Fortune magazine and what's in their Technology section?!?! OLED!!! Ok guys, you have no idea what thin is until you've seen this. It's .12" thin!!! The whole damn monitor and casing itself!!! It hits consumer shelves Dec 1st, so it's already out but it's only in Japan right now. Cost: $1,740 USD. That's the downside. It's a Sony brand too so that goes into the cost

I wish I can link you to the article somehow but I can't find it on the web. It's beautiful. Toshiba is working on a 20" model, Samsung is readying their 14" model for 2009.

Run down:

--No thicker than 3-stacked credit cards.
--Built around layers of custome made OLED (Organic Light-Emitting Diodes).
--That equals=no backlighting, thus drawing way less power.

It's here and looks like LCD may be headed to the graves in the long run. Quality wise, I don't know how it compares to the newer LCDTV, especially their HD models, but it's matched to TV quality.

It has been in the news already awhile back so this technology is technically, nothing new. But it has never been made mainstream until now. Too pricey. But OLED is determined to take off. Man, I have a picture right here in my magazine for the new Sony OLED. Wow, that thing is ultra thing. Talk about razor thin. Sheeshh, you have to see it to believe it. Good stuff. So light, yet so powerful.

If you're looking at almost to G's for what, 14'' to 20'' big, forget about a TV sized OLED.

Well nothing anyone of us could afford at any rate.

Good, its HDMI. Should be a beautiful screen.

The military doesnt need anything like this. What a waste of money.

I heard about this when they finally invented the blue OLED a few years ago, which opened SO MANY POSSIBILITIES. There is not really any downside for OLED monitors - the reason why they're pricey is because they're new, they actually cost much less to make than LCD monitors or CRT monitors.

- Better quality
- Less power consumption
- Bendy/Flexible Monitors
- Very large sizes for small prices (though they're being sold quite expensive at first)
