one of these days I'm gonna dress up like a trade show crew member with some friends and carry away a few items. I assume that tv will get tossed in the garbage eventually anyway.

Even at 8 hours a day( which is still stretching it assuming you aren't a jobless basement dweller) that's 2500 days, or 6.8 years worth of viewing.

the typical lifespan of an OLED still remains around 20,000 hours: that's about two and a half years of normal, everyday use.
2.5*365=912.5
20.000/912.5 = 21.9 hours

who watches tv 21.9 hours a day???

I thought they found away to increase the life cycle to last as long as an LCD....apparently not.

Anyways I look forward to the day when I can buy a 52 inch model that can last for 1,000,000 hours for around $1600...that day will probably be 10 years away.

In Advertising you leave the sign on 24/7. I assume they did some rounding which caused the 2.1 hour difference in your (correct) calculation. You would probably get 4-5 years in stadium use and as others have pointed out, about 6 years in normal household use. I'm still weary buying something I know has a defined lifespan. I could use a B/W CRT from the 1960s and 70s today if I bought the other $9000 in tech needed to convert everything down to it.

Power consumption on this should actually be a lot lower than an LCD or even LED lit LCD display of the same size. That's the beauty of OLED technology...astronomical quality at a fraction of the power cost...and eventually price.

Am I correct in that "lifespan" for tv's is typically the amount of time it takes for the display to be at around half of it's original perceived brightness or brilliance? I know that's how they used to explain plasma life spans years ago.

As long as the old stuff is in good repair, bulbs changed out every so often. The technology will last. I am also weary of buying something that isn't built to last.

That's a good argument for existing DLP and projection LCD tv's, since a new bulb brings you near mind-condition picture quality for several hundred bucks. Or are you talking more about older commercial displays or scoreboards where one incandescent light bulb is one pixel? This technology seems more out to replace large LCD type commercial ad panels which can't be restored to their initial quality with a bulb change. I'm willing to bet early LCD commercial ad panels had similarly short projected lifespans when they were first being put into use. Give it 3-4 years, I bet that number will jump to 40,000 hrs, perhaps more.

As for CRT's from the 70's, those hit their factory spec'ed lifespan limits many moons ago if they've been under normal usage. Sure they may turn on and deliver a picture, but I doubt it's near the set's original quality.

Still, 20,000 hours is over six years if used only for 8 hours a day 365 days a year. But I would bet they won't be in our price range for some time...!

For a living room environment 20,000 would equate to over 15 years of life.

20,000 / (365 x 15) = 3.65 hours/day. I'm sure some families watch more than 3.5 hours of TV per day, but I'd say thats a more than reasonable number.

Our home theater projector last us 4 years, the bulb died at 3982 hours, which averaged to around 1000 hours a year, or 2.73 hours a day, and I don't consider us to be 'light' TV watchers.
