I was at the SonyStyle store recently and I did get to look at the cute 11" OLED that they had on display. I had seen many pictures before and I do agree that in a well setup situation it does produce a great picture. But from what I understand, one of the bonuses to OLED is that it can be made paper thin. I do see the usefulness of this in the near future and I have read about how Sony has developed a flexible OLED display, which is amazing! But looking at the 11" OLED from sony and seeing how thin it is, I just do not understand why they can't make an LCD close to as thin as that. What I am talking about, is that all of the panel's hardware is in the base of the unit with an arm that supports the panel and connects the hardware to the display. When I saw this, I thought to myself "Don't laptops work in essentially the same way with LCD screens?" Now I understand that LCDs do require a substantial backlight for brightness and that takes up quite a bit more space than an OLED, but why hasn't anyone made a half inch thick (or less) LCD TV with a base/stand that houses all of the hardware components much like Sony did with their OLED display? Is there something that disallows this use of an LCD that I do not understand or know of?
