Mistake The post about Samsung’s 23″ OLED monitor prototype that featured on megawhat.tv seems to be the result of a mistaken identity. Unfortunate: I was getting quite excited there for a second. There are many reasons for why the 23″ OLED monitor is most likely a 23″ LCD monitor with a LED backlight. The reasons are:
- Energy Star sticker: I don’t think Energy Star approves prototypes.
- No PR from Samsung: A 23″ OLED monitor would be big news. And Samsung would be milking it! But there is absolute silence…
- 1.6cm thickness: That’s thin, but thick for an OLED display. It should be 1/10 of that.
- Viewing angles: Picture quality washes out when looked from the side; OLEDs don’t do that, but most LCDs do.
