Default Samsung Micro LED

I actually had no idea Samsung had a tech like this in their sleeves and whilst it's interesting that it can do perfect black like OLEDs and has no burn in risk as well as like LCD the potential for massive peak brightness perhaps even more so than OLED.

Sony recently showed off an 8K 10,000 nits monster that seemed to have local dimming available and I'm sure Samsung could probably replicate that with the Micro Led tech BUT it's the "Modular" nature of how it all seems put together that puts me off a bit. It's mainly because you seem to "see" the little modules all stuck together forming the TV but I'm interested to see if Samsung find a way to use Micro LED tech in a more "hidden" way where it looks like traditional screens in all one piece.

I think it possibly still suffers from LCD style motion resolution issues but the tech combined with quantum dots really could beast the flat screen market for even 4K HDR at 10,000 nits within 3-5 years.

I'm always in for some local dining, but as far as the rest of your post, I have no idea.

It sounds a little like Sony's CrystalLED they showed off a few years ago at CES, nothing came of it but it sounded terrific. 1080p set using individual LEDs as the light source, no LCD panel. Perfect blacks.

Samsung's "The Wall" TV looks amazing; it is a 146" micro LED behemoth that will be available for purchase later this year. The price will likely be astounding, too. It is modular. It is shown in this article from CNN along with two other devices.

This might sound naive but what’s to stop people buying a modular tv and then not needing to buy another tv for a very long time. If a module breaks just send it back and reduce the size of the tv. You could in theory, keep doing this beyond the warranty so even though you wouldn’t get a replacement module after the warranty, you could just reduce the size of the screen from the original 75 inches until most of your tiles die.

This sounds bad for tv manufacturers, whats the hook to sell you a new tv down the line?

Probably never happen. 75" would be the smallest.

TCL has a micro led tv out.

I think 60" will be the smallest, most people don't want 75" TVs

TCL's TV is a mini-LED backlight - not micro LED.

The fastest growing segment of the TV market are those whose size is greater than 65".
