OLEDs - the future of flat panels

OLEDs are just plain awesome. Here's a pic from the CES of a 27" unit:

Cnet has a profile of one of them (scroll to the bottom):

I don't see whats the big deal with all these new displays, I mean all the pictures I've seen only look as good as my monitor, complete with green tint and that little slant on the side.
I really need to change this sig

lolz camps

I think his point is that showing us a nice picture of an HDTV or something doesn't do shit cause it can only look as nice as the system we have.

huh? If you have a good CRT, good LCD, and good OLED plugged into the same computer, you would be able to tell the difference between all 3. I would submit that the OLED would make your jaw drop when you see how clear and vivid the colors are and how dramatic the contrast ratio is.

Listen ya bastage.. you may disagree with my political views, but when it comes to technology, I speak from experience. :D

Yes.. there was a time when Mr. K2 needed to setup an email server and who did he turn to... yessir, he did!

BTW.. that was the good 'ol times. My wife and I had only been married a couple of years when I stumbled onto the HF CS server for the first time. Seven years later you still can't get rid of meh! I really miss those times :(

LoL, at least someone got it. And yea, I imagine that if I saw an OLED display in person I would agree that the clarity is much better than this 8 year old monitor. (and I was kiddin bout the green tint)

yeah in person I could see it, but here on my LCD or in his case on his shitty CRT I have no idea how much better it would look, when I sit here and look at it the best it can look is the way that my LCD looks. So in his case the screen is green.... I believe it was an attempt at humor...

how are these things going to compare to regular leds in terms of price?

I am assuming you mean "lcds" when you said "leds". If so, they will be cheaper ultimately. They also have a alot of other options for usage besides TV/Monitors. I saw a concept demo of an OLED on a paper thin piece of some organic material. It was highly flexible and was rendering a video while the dude was bending it around. Impressive, to say the least. The biggest problem they have to overcome right now is life span. OLEDs lose their life (read: they get dimmer) sooner than conventional LCD displays.
