Two problems facing mainstream OLED production are the relative lifespan of the “blue” pixel, and a relatively low yield. Compared to the red and green pixels, the blue pixel is much less efficient.
For a technology that is expensive it needs to tested and proven. Both LG and Samsung OLED TVs come with a 12 month warranty, and that’s what points to a ‘not a very durable’ TV.
Usually when new technology is introduced into the market it is at a fortune, but the price gradually comes down making it affordable but with the OLED TV this in not going to happen soon.
Do you think you will want such an expensive TV, that too with a technology that is yet to proof durable.
LG, for example, has recently been displaying its OLED TVs side-by-side to competitors in order to show off its fantastic contrast and True Black performance. But that doesn’t tell you the whole story. If you’re watching regular, standard definition TV on an LG OLED TV, all the contrast in the world doesn’t hide the fact that the picture can look poor.
That’s not to say that those TVs are bad. At present, there is no One TV To Rule Them All. All the top models excel in some areas but fall down in others.
Curved screens were initially sold on the principle that looking at one was more comfortable because it matched the curvature of your eyeball. This effect rings true especially with computer monitors where one person is sitting directly in front of the screen.
However, if multiple people are watching a TV then those who are off-centre get lumbered with a distorted image. Larger TVs have a more-open curve and are, thus, less distorted than smaller, curved TVs.
LCD is catching up to OLED in terms of black levels. At CES last month, Samsung showed a deceptively labeled QLED. This acronym implies and sounds as if these new sets are OLEDs, but they’re simply souped-up LCDs with traditional LED
What is OLED Burn-in?
Image retention refers to any image that “sticks” on a screen, even when the content changes. It usually appears as a faint ghost, and with most TVs this fades after a moment or two.
Burn-in is a form of image retention that lasts much longer, and it’s usually visible even when playing other content. It’s usually caused by leaving a static image on a screen for a long period of time.
Top 5 Reasons Why You Should Buy An OLED TV
1) OLEDs have (far) better contrast
2) OLEDs have better, sharper, cleaner picture quality
3) OLEDs work on wider viewing angles
4) OLEDs offer better response time in displaying an image
5) OLED panels are thinner and lighter in design
