Sony XEL-1 OLED TV / 2008

Popular Science - - 71 -

On pa­per, the first com­mer­cially avail­able OLED TV doesn’t seem all that im­pres­sive. The screen was only 11 inches, it cost $2,500, and the pic­ture wasn’t even 1080p high-def. In per­son, how­ever, the XEL-1’s su­per-slim pro­file—just 3 mil­lime­ters—and ul­tra­dark black lev­els were un­like any other boob­tube on the mar­ket. Now, OLED is the stan­dard for smart­phone dis­plays and flag­ship flat-screen HDTVs.
