And the most exciting "display" of all, the one thing that rules them all by lightyears, is a 3-D Holographic display. I sooo wish to have such a display...but I doubt we'll see that technology perfected and sold in mass-quantities before 2020...NKDietrich said:The only thing more exciting than SED displays are the carbon nano-tube displays. Infinite contrast ratio because an inactive pixel produces _no_ light.
I'm guessing SED has more of a chance of catching on though. Carbon Nano-tube displays seem like yet another "Wow gee, nano-tubes can do cool shit" gadget.
You probably will be able to. It is predicted that most current display mfr's could easily adopt and ramp up production, which would lead to a free-fall in prices. LCD's have been in a price free-fall in the past year or so (and still to this day). have faith danielsonfakeian said:i wish i could afford such a display

No. CRTs have an electron cannon that scans across the surface, each scan is one update, one flicker. SEDs have constant discrete pixel elements, like LCDs. But they do not suffer the delay of LCD tech.Marty81 said:Will they flicker like CRT's do?
Wouldn't suprise me a bit. Any time you've got a big array of discrete display elements dead pixels are a possibility. Whether the problem will be less than or greater than LCDs I have no idea.trek554 said:will there still be dead pixels like lcd??
i hope thats the case cause i cant stand dead or stuck pixels. i bought an lcd with a dead pixel right in the middle of the screen and could not be ignored. i have tried four different brands and three had one or more dead pixels.Araanor said:I'm getting a feeling the dead pixel thing is not much of a problem outside of LCDs. Dead pixels, as I understand it, are due to the crystals getting stuck in one position. You see, LCD pixels control the amount of light they let out by the orientation of its crystals.
SED pixels work in an entirely different way: there's an emitter and there's a phosphor element. Phosphor can burn in a bit, and it can fade over time, but it can't get stuck as crystals do. I can imagine emitters malfunctioning, but I see no particular reason they would. It looks fairly simple, no moving parts, so to say.
Due to the differences between both technologies (LCD and SED), and with SED being far easier to manufacture, the possibility of you getting an SED display with one or more dead (sub)pixels should be at most slightly higher than with a CRT. Or in other words: very unlikely.trek554 said:will there still be dead pixels like lcd??
