but I thought only the tech is the same but it's much, much more primitive (monochrome) than full-fledged display panels?
Yeah. The comparison is weird. We've had LED lights everywhere for years now, but that doesn't mean it's as easy to manufacture a panel with almost microscopic units that can be very finely voltage regulated in real time.
mLED: Not that difficult when we make much smaller other devices. And LEDs aren't known for being overly consistent in output either and they do burn in too and all 3 colors are again separate with different burn in times. I really don't see a reason why you couldn't just print mLED materials instead of OLED.
It's just getting one company to actually invest $ into the technology/machines. Right now they are all sitting on LCD and milking. LG has some and others got annoyed, joint together a little and started JOLED, the rest? Good luck finding any reasonable size and volume, it's all tiny displays mostly for mobile devices etc.
mmms: "planned obsolescence" or what ever it's called, as in ok the burn in starts to get noticeable after 5 years for example but OLED is cheap to mass produce meaning the price should be low so that it's actually affordable to replace every 5 years, a dream for the sellers really where right now if you get a decent LCD monitor you will sit on it as long as you can so they do all they can to make them fail sooner in any way. Cars have suffered this cheaping out for ages to boost new sales and forced replacing.
As far as I'm aware JOLED isn't even making the "materials" they buy them, they "just" print out the panels. Get a larger printer surface JOLED!
And the huge LG OLEDs are probably made using different technique, and I read medium sized are not well suited for it, no idea why, are all small OLEDs printed and the huge ones use different method? Leaving the PC market = medium size completely dead for now? Seems silly that some technique would have size limitations.
i think they're using the press method for bigger panels.
its faster and simpler, but cant be accurately done with higher pixel densities.
trolling an adult is very dangerous, don't try it at home nor at work. you don't want to play tag with a rabid man.
