Hi, new user on the forums.

I know it's a little bit Sony focused but they seem to be the first to go all out. So do we really need to dismantle stuff anymore? This really got me interested in making my DIY Cintiq. Some people might bitch about the low lifetime about these screens - you probably already have a new one when the old one dies. Wink

OLED definitely owns any technology when it comes to us artists. (except Canon's SED - but the technology is somewhat the same as CRTs but flat, which I take it will be electromagnetic? = not good for us) Cheers~

If your going to spend that sort of money, buy a real cintiq.

Nice tech though. Hopefully the price will come down and the lifetimes go up.

It would make a build loads easier*

If your going to spend that sort of money, buy a real cintiq.

The production costs have been stated as cheaper than the LCDs today. The same with Canons SED. But the reason why they will be more expensive in the beginning is because the demand versus availability isn't as huge as with LCDs today. The prices has dropped insane amounts on LCDs and therefore Sony will have problems to compete right now with OLED.

The less you produce and the less demand there is, the higher the prices and the less bulk prices the stores get. Cheaper to produce yes, but the market price will be higher - for a while. Grin Give it a couple of years. Smiley

Basically from about 1 min of reading, they are just panels that use powerful leds and either all or some are flexible and transparent on both sides.

Organilc Light Emitting Diodes.   An organic compound that lights up when you stick a voltage through it.   Because the screen itself lights up there's no need for a backlight.  The sposts of compound can be treated to do RGB colours, This stuff can be made into plastic sheets so you get a thin flexible screen.

Sony showed a 26" TV at E3 that was 10mm thick (less than 1/4"),  that's the whole TV.

Check these videos and you understand what I'm hyped about. Paperthin screen - who needs to worry about the tablet stylus reacting and jittering? Grin With such a thin screen, you probably don't have to pick the tablet apart. Tongue
