    Cool, I will check it out. :)

    I´m looking for a small TV (29 inch) for my bedroom at the moment. I prefer Plasma over LED, but sadly they don´t make small plasma´s anymore.

    I also wonder why it´s taking so long to introduce OLED to the market. :cautious:

    Even if there were OLED TVs widely available now they would be quite expensive. :D

    Yes, of course the 29" would be cheaper than a 50" but still they will be more expensive that's for sure.

    But then I wouldn't spend that kind of money and pay extra to get a 29" OLED for the bedroom. :D

    Ah yes, security forum. Some models, not all, firmware update released.

    Yes, that´s another problem of course. Remember plasma´s back in the days, costing 5 to 10000 bucks? :)

    To be honest I think TV screen innovation is going way to slow.

    In 2006 we were already talking about OLED, now it´s 2000 freaking 14, still no widely available OLED´s.

    Technicians should be ashamed of themselves. :cautious:
