And you misread the document which quote the reponse time as 100 microseconds or .1 miliseconds. I find even this doubtful though.
I was referring to your mystifying reiteration of the response times of LCD panels (fast and average) that I'd posted.
Listen, Quantum Dot technology is very interesting, and might be better than OLED at some point. It might be more immune to uneven aging of the pixel elements, that affects OLED. LG (using Kodak's patents entirely) gets around that with the additional white element that is filtered with color filters to compensate for the resulting, and changing shift in color balance.
The LG (Kodak) design is a very good one, and their WRGB or WOLED design is much easier to produce than Samsung's RGB tech, which is the reason Samsung exited the market.
But OLED has nothing in common with LCD except for the use of the thin film transistor backplane, which is the circuitry that drives and addresses the elements of the display. It does not supply illumination at all. The backplane directs current and information to the display elements, not light.
The illumination in LCD originally came from CCFL tubes, and now derives from LEDs whose light is filtered and modulated by the liquid crystals.
OLED, on the other hand, themselves produce light when excited, and have no need for any additional light source.
It's the differences between transmissive displays (LCD) and emissive displays (OLED, and Sony's never released Crystal LED display) that gives OLED (and Quantum dot) the clear advantage in picture quality.
The only potential drawback to OLED, then, is the uneven wear of the OLEDs (largely addressed by the Kodak/LG design) and burn in. LCDs are far more resistant to uneven wear or "burn in."
This should all make you happy, because eventually we'll all get better, more luminous, more affordable large displays which we can put on our walls. No more sticky stuff on your shoes from the movie theater.
