Episode 1009

Leo says that because of Scott, Leo ended up buying a $9,000 55" OLED HDTV. Leo says it's the best picture he's ever seen. Scott says that we're just now seeing OLED being scaled up to larger displays and over time, the price will drop. But it has no backlighting or edge lighting, and the blacks are pure black. Leo says it's very sophisticated with motion control, and has a voice activated remote. It just needs calibrating and Scott can't wait to do it! Scott also says that OLED's color and contrast also stays the same as you go "off axis" from the center.

Carlos from Brooklyn, NY

Carlos wants to get a nice multi HD monitor setup with an HDTV to use as a gaming monitor. Leo says that HDTVs have lower resolution than computer monitors. Monitors are over 2K while TVs are currently just 1080p. 4K TVs are coming though. There is a Seiki UHD $1500 4K TV. PC Perspectives has reviewed it and got pretty good results. Most video cards now have HDMI, so he could connect his computer to an HDTV directly.
