Bigger OLED TV

  • April 20, 2010

OLED Products
The newest organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs) are bigger, transparent, and able to emit purer white light.

OLED Displays are very thin and render colors more vividly than other technologies. They also have a nearly 180° viewing angle and refresh nearly 1,000 times as fast as liquid-crystal displays. But they’re tricky to make in large sizes. The largest OLED TV to reach market has a screen measuring 15 diagonal inches–beating an 11-inch model offered by Sony–and is just three millimeters thick.

Product: EL9500 LG 15-inch OLED television
Cost: About $2,750
