I think they just made a mistake w\ the 2 1/2 years for 20,000 hours.

40 hours per week is 2056 hours per year. 2000x10 is 20,000... so should last a long time.

When I saw the 2 1/2 years I was WTF!? It would be insane if you had to drop $1500-2000+ every 2 1/2 years to buy a new tv.

I've had my first tv, a 50'' DLP i got for $500 on craigslist for over 2 years and it's still working great. It will be the video game tv when we get a new LCD for the living room.

What you don't watch TV 24 hours a day?
...why do I have to point out the obvious? OLED compounds degrade over time regardless of whether the TV is actually on. So yes, it is just under 2.5 years.

the 2 1/2 year estimate is accurate in the sense that they're marketing this display for commercial advertising. Hence, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year of non-stop usage (8760 hours right there). I have no idea whether or not that's up to snuff for a typical ad in Times Square, but it's cool to know the tech is moving along quickly :)

Nope. They degrade only when on.

Didn't 10" or somewhere along that size OLED screens cost several thousand dollars only a year ago?

I'm mainly interested into how many pixels they can cram into a 30" screen.
Pixels > Screen size.

I'm surprised to see no one crying about the zune HD using an OLED... seems to be perfectly fine so far >_>

Pixels

Go back and read the article again. They said the dot pitch was around 3 mm. The dot pitch is way too big for the average living room or bedroom. Even a standard definition crt is only around 1-2 mm dot pitch. For high definition viewing, something less than 1 mm dot pitch would be ideal.
