VinnyS- I'm not sure where we disagree. We say the same thing but with different sentences.
Sony OLED has been on the market for several years in smaller screen size and available through Sony Broadcast division. But it is not a type of monitor a consumer would be interested in. We both agree that the consumer version of the OLED is not yet available and that promises to make them available are made all the time but nothing kept.
But all this just makes the question of choice academic because the UHD LED is available and OLED, not. It took a few years before Panasionic and others claim they resolved the burn-in problem with Plasma so it is reasonable to assume if the industry works on the problems of making large screen OLED they will eventually resolve the problems. But are they working on all the problems I mentioned? When I asked the people at Sony about these they only acknowledged one of the problems and denied they saw any reflections in the Blacks. But in my videos, you can plainly see all sorts of annoying reflections. I'm sorry, but to all who worship the infinite black level of OLED, which is fine, but if I have to also look at the room reflections, then you can keep the infinite black level. I find it annoying.
Based on what I saw and what I will accept here- The OLED is still a product in development and to want that, you have to be willing to wait, same as for glasses free technology. Were getting closer than ever before but for the near future, there is no choice. It's UHD LED or wait with your 1080p TV. I'd bet the price of UHD TV's in LED will be down to competitive long before the problems of OLED are resolved.
1. Manufacture % good product
2. Retail sales price is reasonable
3. Colors aging at different rates causing color calibration problems with age.
4. Room reflections in the blacks. There is no such thing on OLED as flat black, only glossy black.
5. Competitive panel sizes
6. 4K as the defacto standard- we should not settle for OLED in 1080p when 2160p is the new direction. Only Sony is heading in this direction.
#3- We have a similar issue with UHP lamp projectors but the fix is a simple lamp change and the projector looks like new again.
