5/22    Are LED monitors much better than LCD monitors?
        \_ OLED is still too new to know.  They're direct emitters, so don't
           have a backlight, and can turn completely off, hence better black.
           The early news was that blue pixels burn out relatively quickly.
           \_ FWIW, Zune HD will use OLED.
        \_ Dunno, but I saw a very nice LED TV for just $2K. Wouldn't that
           pretty much completely kill LCD and plasma and that price?
           \_ LED (not OLED) monitors means it's an LCD monitor with
              an LED backlight (as opposed to older monitors which had
              a florenscent backlight).  LED backlights look better, are
           \_ LED (not OLED) monitor means it's an LCD monitor with
              an LED backlight (as opposed to older monitors which have
              florenscent backlights).  LED backlights look better, are
              stronger, and last last longer than florescents, and are
              quickly becoming the standard for anything but the cheapest
              of displays.  OLED tech is much more cutting edge/expensive
              and high resolution displays are still crazy expensive.
              \_ I see. I was wondering because I saw an "LED TV" for $10K
                 just a few months ago and now they are $2K, but the
                 former was probably OLED and the latter is definitely LED.
                 I still use CRTs, man, and my TV has an analog tuner and
                 no cable, which means I have no TV in about 3 weeks.
