OLED Technology

Been checking out the latest 6000, 7000 series LED TV's from Samsung!

 

WOW! Absolute vivid colours! They were playing Monsters Inc. on it and it was as if you were able to touch them from the 3D effect the backlit OLED produced!! 1080p at its absolute best! Makes LCD now seem like a cathode ray tube!

 

Not many technology reviews out there about the Samsung TV's yet though ... but I'm seriously thinking of upgrading!! :P

3D so far as the clarity of the edges gave a greater perception of depth within a 2D moving image. This ain't 3D POV by a long shot...yet! It is still an amazing technology though. Apparently half the energy consumption as the CCFL backlit screens too to boot.

 

Makes LCD now seem like a cathode ray tube!

.. that should read CCFL LCD "Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp" ...

 

My phone has one of these Samsung AMOLED screens on it. Amazingly clear imagery also - especially for a 3.7" screen - even at very acute or obtuse angles.

 

LED technology has come ahead in leaps and bounds with these organic compounds. Just wait for quantum dot LED's to become stable and commercially viable :)

Only seen a mobile phone screen with this so far but it was rather good. As you say trout, advances in materials science are just mind boggling now.

 

Slightly off topic, but I heard/read a news report recently that revealed that an american magazine had given away an edition with the first ever 'live' page on this new wafer thin (wafer doesn't seem a thin enough term nowadays! :shock: ), erm, paper thin, flexible displays. Truly the stuff of science fiction.

^^ Yeah, I saw that too. They were just being released in New York stores or something? A comparison had been made to some a book in Harry Potter?! Science fiction becoming science fact and all that ...

 

To my mind I'd compared it to those dodgy cards you open and they make a sound or play a tune - so far as it is the same principle.

 

Apparently, there was a EPROM in it and a standalone battery. I had wondered if it'd be possible to reflash it?

The "Samsung Mobile Display" section of Samsung, strangely enough, are touting a WVGA 800x400 pixels AMOLED screen. My phone is 640x360. Mental.

 

The only thing I worry about is the lifespan of this technology. There's not a great deal of science fact around about this?! When will my phone burn out I wonder?!

I am sure I read somewhere fairly recently that the technology is a lot better now than in its early days and you will probably get a normal lifetime out of it. Whatever that may be. A CRT telly used to have an expected lifespan of about 8 years but most would carry on long after that.

the 6/7 samsung series have led back lights, the oled sets are still a few years away yet.

 

As far as Led back light LCD displays go, best to go for a local dimming set, edge lit led like the 6/7/8 still has some problems, the new Samsung 8500 panels are local dimming, going to be released this coming month, also the LG LH9500 looks like its going to be a really nice LD set also to go on sale really soon. I'm going for the samsung 8500 or LG LH9500 I think.

^^ aha. Yes, from your post I've been doing wider search term searches and believe now I'd been mistaken in thinking these series TV's were true OLED rather than just backlit LED LCD in its present form. Shame. Boo.

 

That's why as I say earlier I'd not found much tech evidence of "what I was looking for!"

 

From what I saw with the Monsters Inc. Blur-Ray playing on it through a Toshiba cheap as mince player was outstanding, however! More so than my own Samsung LCD from two years past on varying players I've had hooked up to it - with a range of cables.

 

Boo. Back to clocking reviews and checking the tech specs some more ....
