This forum is all great but does not mention the cost of replacing the lamp bulb on the 5010 which is $300.00 after 4000hrs of use. Not sure if it would be more feasible to get a 72" OLED 3D TV instead. I heard the new ones coming out do not need 3D glasses and they can also be swithed from 2D and 3D in any mode. They are also making them less 4mm thick and are fully wireless compatible with all the techno crap and are rated past 400,000hrs.

Check out the new OLED T.V.'s We’ve seen them before with small sizes and high prices but this year OLED TVs are set to make a big splash with several reasonably priced large screen HDTVs using the technology hitting shelves this year from LG. Lets take a closer look at this exciting display technology and run down why its getting so much attention.

To start with we’ve got to differentiate between OLED and the LED displays that are already commonplace. They may sound similar, but theres a big difference. the ‘O’, which stands for ‘organic’ makes all the difference.

In LED screens you require back-lighting but in an OLED display each organic cell emits its own light so we no longer need any back-light. This means screens can be much more thin and light weight. For example, LG has a 55” OLED TV on its way to stores which is only 4mm thick! Thats about the thickness of three stacked credit cards. Whats more, the lack of back-lighting means your OLED can be nearly borderless with the picture extending almost right to the edge.

This technology isn’t just going to effect the size and shape of screens though. The responsiveness is also much quicker than your run of the mill LED TV - over a thousand times quicker. That means you’ll always get super sharp detail, even with fast motion video.

The OLED system also means better contrast control. Since each cell is its own light source, we can achieve localized dimming and extreme contrast ratios with deep blacks and vibrant whites at the same time. We can now have true black pixels.

Try taking any other TV in a dark room. See the screen when the picture is supposed to be black? It doesn’t look quite black, does it? More like dark grey. It still glows a little. If you had an OLED screen you wouldn’t see anything. Just blackness. This may sound like a little thing but it really does make a lot of difference. It means everything looks the best it can with all the sharpness and depth it deserves.

Really OLED technology is poised to improve every aspect of new TVs. Size, weight, form factor, contrast, colour and even speed. Its worth paying attention to. Chances are, once you see one of the new OLED TVs in action you won’t be able to look at your old HDTV the same way again.

So after reading this check out the new OLEDS and see if it would be more feasible than replacing $300.00 bulbs every 4000hrs. T.V. are getting better by the year. I gigure in about 5 more years technology will have quadrupled in t.v's and then these OLEDS will be out of date. Imagine a t.v. built into your entire wall as thin as tinfoil in fact your entire wall could be a t.v. and it would seem like you were looking outside. You could have billions of different color manipulations and actually see light reflect off a grain of salt. It would be so real that you could almost walk into a movie or game thinking it is and bump back from your wall. The future is coming folks and projectors will be out and nonexistent.
