There is no logic in that at all. OLED is more expensive because it is new. TMOS when it shows (it still hasn't) will be more expensive because it is new. Long term OLED has IMO has the potential to be the least expensive because you just need to power the OLED compound and you have an emitter. That compound eventually will be laid down with something like modified ink jet heads. These should eventually produce dirt cheap panels.
Yes, my intentions were to reflect the other guy's flawed logic about TMOS and apply it to OLED. All I've been saying is that TMOS will be cheaper than OLED, eventually while he was demanding evidence (prices, I guess ) why TMOS is cheaper than OLED now even though >=50" OLED do not even exist and will not exist for years.
TMOS will have OLED, or better than OLED contrast ratios
Clearly you don't understand how OLED works vs how Mems devices work. OLED is emmisive, when you turn an emitter off, it emits no light, it is pure black. Contrast ratio is infinite.
I understand that very well. Read my sentence again and think about what it actually means. I said, "will have OLED (contrast)", meaning, equal, then, "better than OLED contrast", meaning, TMOS can do HDR easily because it can be much brighter than OLED, meaning higher contrast than OLED.
MEMs technolgies use micro shutters and a back and they leak light when off, therefore black will not be as black and contrast ratio is limited.
You're thinking LCD. MEMS is a different ball of wax. These displays will eventually be able to block all light completely, something LCD still cannot do very well even after nth generations and years of development.
Emission technolgies like OLED seem superior in most ways from an image quality perspective:
Sure, they are superior now when you put it against LCD or plasma. It's not a fair fight. I doubt they will be superior in the future. And when it comes to manufacturing cost or availability of >50" panels, it won't be even close for another 5 years. The most realistic scenario, IMO, is that one once 50" FED hits the mass market in 2-3 years, while 40" OLED is still in the lab or at consumer shows only, investors will quickly forget about OLED. And when MEMS-based displays debut in 3-4 years (IMOD is already on the market so this could be sooner than later), investments in OLEDs for mobile devices will dry up very quickly too.
