Samsung makes the first color quantum dot display, still years till we see it in production

They are deemed very suitable for display technologies, because of the combination of the best of both worlds - a fifth of the cheap LCD technology power consumption, and at the same time twice cheaper to manufacture than AMOLED displays, but brighter and longer-lasting at that.
Samsung has managed to sprinkle the technology on both glass and plastic susbtrates, using active matrix to turn the dots on and off. The resulting display is full-color, but there are still a lot of engineering hurdles to be overcome to achieve the technology's potential. That is why researchers clarify we are still about three years away from seeing those in commercial devices like cell phones, but the things are looking more and more promising by the day.

This display technology is not LED, nor are the "LED" TVs that are being sold currently... those are LCD panels with white LED back (or side) lighting, which replaced CFL backlighting, allowing for a much thinner profile. The real question here is... will quick advancements in quantum dot display technology shrink the window of opportunity for OLED?

Nimo, where did remixfa make a grammatical error? Remixfa, it is nice to see that I'm not alone when it comes to noticing how many writers have horrible grammer in today's society. Also, this technology is going to be amazing and it will probably come out too fast for OLED to get a chance to shine.

thats just funny. Im not talking about a missing period or a missed capitolization. I dont care about that. The sentences themselves are nearly nonsensical. I realize that the person blogging may have English as a second language, but that doesnt excuse the mistakes. It takes someone 3 seconds to proofread before posting. Looking elsewhere on the site, its getting more and more prevalent which is making the articles harder to read.
