OT... But has there ever been any more news on that Crystal LED Sony technology prototype that was briefly mentioned somewhere a few years ago now David do you know ?
I can share some thoughts on that.
As you may know, Sony is now in a bad financial situation, especially the TV business.
They could've researched Crystal-LED or OLED technologies to go into some product, but they just don't have the damn money.
That's why they shut down a work on OLED with Panasonic, and that's why they'll showcase only LED LCDs in the near future. There's nothing more for them left apart from buying OEM LCD panels and put them into their products. No in-house expensive parts like panels or research are made .
I fear they may go down for good if their gamble with 4K LCDs won't be successful. That's a grim situation for all Japanese vendors now.

Which I think is a shame, as I feel the Japanese have got the right attitude when it comes to making TV's and tech... I hope they can turn it around.

No news :( It'd have been all over the front page if there was. It was wall-to-wall LED LCD at CES this year from Sony... which in a way is weirdly better than manufacturers teasing us with OLED prototypes that don't turn into real product.

Thanks for the reply anyway David.

Yeah i had a feeling that may have been the case. But had been quietly hoping there may have been whispers (even of the Chinese variety lol) especially after effectively dropping OLED.

Shame really though - as it sounded extremely promising. Especially the response times.
