Well put Tim. Don't worry about OLED wxman because the ace up its sleeve is the potential for OLEDs to be literally printed. Google "ink-jet printing" and "OLED"...when this technique is mastered and production costs plummet, you can bet OLED will take over regardless of how clueless the average consumer is.
Remember when all the Best Buy saleskids started telling everyone about how the "plasma gas leaks..." LOL. Likewise once the profit margins for OLED exceed LCD, you can bet that LCDs will suddenly develop some sort of horrible malady to scare away the masses.
However in their defense, you have to admit when you approach the TV wall of a big box store, those LEDs really do pop out. It's no wonder average Joe who doesn't know (or care) about black levels and color accuracy turned his nose away from the TV that struggled to fight the bright fluorescent overhead ambient lighting and went straight to the LED light cannon next to it. Plasma sure is going out slugging, but it was never a fair fight.
That's what makes OLED so exciting. No doubt many will be confused by the acronym, but OLED is much closer to plasma in principle. Both are emissive displays with each and every pixel being the light and color source. That's the primary reason plasma has such rich, warm colors and deep blacks...which we at AVS know LCD could never match due to the limitations of its transmissive design and why we're so sad to see plasma go away. Meanwhile OLED has the ability to fairly fight LCD in brightness and costs (and eventually surpass).
Thus I see OLED as the spiritual successor to our glorious plasma displays. I believe OLED will finish the fight against inferior LCD displays that have been foisted on all of us. And once this superior display technology achieves mass appeal, I think we can expect amazing things at amazing prices.
In the mean time I will rest assured my Panny TC-P65ST60 is one of the finest displays available, not to mention the bargain of this century. Keep your eyes peeled for closeouts on the VT60, ZT60, & eventually F8500's!
