Is OLED ever going to happen for computer monitors? - Page 3

Now, sticking to entertainment purposes as this applies to most of us, from what I've seen in reviews, average color/gamma/white point accuracy is better on high end TVs than gaming monitors. Not to mention many high end TVs have support for both sRGB and wider gamuts too. High end TVs also have the best contrast and blacks of any LCD display, and then some have HDR. And again these TVs have the fastest VA panels out there, albeit it's still slower than any gaming IPS/TN monitor.

But OLED can do it all, and do it all better than LCD. Burn-in should hopefully be solved over time, thank you WetMacula for describing some of the countermeasures on your OLED TV.

Then the only reason monitors are more expensive is because people don't buy as many of them, where as tons of people buy TVs.

There is an owner's thread for the LG 55C.

Yup, it's true. Especially for the gaming monitors; I can't help but feel jipped spending $800 on the Acer XB270HU and getting such garbage picture quality. I have the crispness of the resolution, I have ULMB and G-SYNC, and high refresh rates, but the picture quality is worse than $300 Dell Ultrasharps.

Sick setup! Just one question, can I borrow some money?

Dell got an OLED Monitor as far I know thumb.gif

It's vaporware at this point, though.

It won't be until they figure out the burn in thing. Also what LG did was not fix the burn in issue but the short lifespan if early OLEDs but putting a white on in there I think. OLEDS still have a relatively short lifespan. The burn in issue and the lifespan issue is compounded with a computer monitor because they display far more static images and are on for a lot longer than TVs.

Also it's still relatively new and pretty expensive...yes there are 65 inch OLED tvs for 3500 but there are also 65 inch LCDS for 1200.

Will there be OLED monitors soon? Probably, but they're going to be very expensive for a while and they're probably going to have a far shorter lifespan than a comparative LCD or IPS monitor.

You're probably looking at 2 or 3 year minimum for a viable OLED computer monitor...and even then it's probably still going to cost more than your whole rig did

1. OLED displays (particularly LG's) have image retention, but users haven't reported any burn-in (the former is harmless)
2. Static images displayed for extended periods of time are only a problem if you let it be one, just as TV channel logos are
3. All tech is expensive initially, due to either cost of implementation or lack of competition

Right all true but the basis of what I was saying was basically don't expect a reasonably priced OLED computer display anytime soon.

Great question, OLED was being talked about back in like 2005 for TV's and monitors.

I think the major manufactures agreed to not go near it because it stalled, didn't happen at all. It only existed in car decks that people would buy (mostly aftermarket) then in recent years you saw it slowly creep into cellphone displays.

Shame too because make in the very early 2000s there was talk of making them and how they could be as thin as a piece of paper and how flexible and easily it could roll it up or unroll it. A concept design of a newspaper was shown somewhere that people could have their news on and sit and read it but it would update each day with the new newspaper.


For me I haven't upgraded my CRT monitor from 2005, a Samsung DF1100 because I was waiting for something that wasn't a crappy LCD/LED with 60hz refresh rate and ghosting all over the place. At 1280X1024 it can pump out 100HZ and games can get FPS up to like 180+

I'm trying the Acer Pred xbu21 but still the tearing is hard to handle for me...not as crisp
