    AMOLED production scaling pushes pricing to TFT LCD levels

    In some cases, like with 5.5-inch screens, AMOLED panels are now the cheaper option.

    There is the Dell UltraSharp UP3017Q 30" OLED Monitor at a high price, $1550 in the US and apparently not available in the UK yet. As OLED production gets cheaper perhaps we will see more soon.

    Re: AMOLED production scaling pushes pricing to TFT LCD levels

    Well that's the thing, OLED panels are affordable. It used to be they could only be produced for small sizes such as mobiles, but now we've seen them in large TVs for several years, and now at not unreasonable price points.

    Yet, only Dell has dipped their toe, and only at the high-end of the market.

    I've been holding off upgrading my monitor for OLED since the end of CRTs, I've gone through several stop-gap cheapo TFT screens as OLED is just a year away for the last decade. Maybe next year eh?

    Re: AMOLED production scaling pushes pricing to TFT LCD levels

    There were a couple of problems with OLED devices in general, one was the relatively short lifespan, compared with other technologies, and also the uneven reduction in light output over time - particularly blue emitters. They are also very susceptible to water damage!

    I dont know how far technology has progressed to overcome these, but that could be why large screen devices are not readily available.

    Not really to drop it in water but air humidity is still water. They are very very sensible at in what conditions are kept.

    Only when it condenses.

    But they are readily available, just not on monitors yet.
