I think OLED will work out just fine. Look how long it took LCD to improve since the advent of plasma displays for the consumer. OLED is not perfect but has made a big leap in a relatively short time.

I just sold a Samsung plasma that is 7 years old. It ran several hours a day, most every day. It was calibrated in 2009, never missed a beat and still has a great picture.
