How many years before OLED becomes a standard for monitors?

#1castrejon04Posted 12/25/2013 12:50:17 PM
I just got my Asus MX 279H, and it's wonderful with color accurate picture quality and ideal for Photoshop. I replace my HP 2009 monitor with this one after almost 5 years of usage, and I'm thinking of doing the same thing in the next 5 years. Do you guys think OLED monitors will finally kick off by then?

I haven't kept up with the tech of OLED much but isn't there still degradation over time? Might not be ideal for color critical work after some time.

I think OLEDs are expected to be commonplace by 2016.

They might be affordable by then, but you can never tell with OLED. It is always 1 step forward, 1 step backwards with it. A company demonstrated a new OLED printing process called YIELDJet that is supposed to increase OLED yield while also increasing OLED lifespan. If all goes well with it, we will probably start seeing results with it by 2016. There's been a lot of bad news with OLED as well though. The biggest is that the Panasonic/Sony OLED partnership was terminated.

I saw a news article today about sony and panasonic quitting the joint OLED development they had been working on since last year.

So is likely that OLED never makes it to mainstream.

Who knows? I remember reading an article in 2003 detailing the work kodak was doing with OLED. 2013, no OLED no SED.

Pretty sure Samsung and LG combined make up like an overwhelming majority of the display manufacturing market, and they seem to be pushing OLED pretty hard. Especially Samsung since they've used it in virtually every smartphone they've produced.

Burn in pictures is what happens. Also splotty black can occur despite being new. Not really noticeable unless the picture is completely black. Otherwise, it really is very nice compared to an LCD. Can view the picture from any angle.

Very happy with my PSV :-)

I recall reading that once they have OLED production down to an exact science, they'll be the cheapest, most efficient display ever made. Currently using a 23" LED LCD for gaming, and a 50" Plasma for movie viewing. I would welcome the transition to OLED if they become affordable.
