Sony is the first company to bring a 3mm thick organic LED (OLED) display to the market. The displays are brighter and more energy efficient than LCD screens because they do not need a backlight to light them. They're still on the pricey side though, at approx. $1700 for a 11" model. It's good to know that the LCD TV you just bought is out of date though wink.gif

I'm hoping it will solve the problem I have with my current LCD computer monitor. Because I use the same software every day, the window borders are burnt into the screen and I don't really know how to avoid that without constantly resizing the window while I'm working.

Sony is the first to market with a TV but OLED computer monitors have been out for a while. I remember looking at them once. They're used professionally for color grading and so forth, when it's essential that you have perfect color reproduction. They're about $8k for a 20".

I don't think it will take 15 years for the price to go down. I'd say 5.

Yeah, but if it costs $50 at Walmart that probably means that something much better is out at the time.
