    This would work fine with OLED as well, wouldn't it?

    Don't see why the concept wouldn't work with any screen. The actual innovation slots between the GPU and the screen. The screen itself isn't affected unless I've missed something.

    Re: News - LG self-refreshing panel a boon to laptop-makers

    TBH I am fed up with the monitor market at the moment, True there are more and more IPS panels coming out but the market is still flooded with crap TN panels.
    What I want to see is a true move forward, if were to have 3D forced down our throats then give me a 3D capable IPS panel.
    What I would really like to see is OLED kick off big time but I know there are technical limitations.
    What I dont get is why resolutions haven't risen? there was a time when every 6 months there were higher res monitors out, the GPU's out today are more than capable.
    When can I buy a 20 - 24" 2560x1600 screen?

    You can but they are expensive, its simply supply and demand.

    A 747 doesn't impress me half as much as concorde, but one i still in service.

    Average joe doesn't want to pay for the good stuff, he just wants 24 inches.

    Its a free market failure in some ways, but nothing like as much as the crap pre-loaded on a PC, because the margins are so tight every 50p from google/mcafee/whoever is worth it. I honestly think there would be a good paper for economics on such study of pre-loaded crap....

    Surely that would make him above average Joe #shuffles off quietly with ruler#
